This Is The First Lamborghini Huracan With A Six-Speed Manual

A shop out of the U.S. dubbed B is for Build is creating what it dubs the world’s first Lamborghini Huracan with a six-speed manual transmission.

From the factory, the Huracan is sold exclusively with a dual-clutch transmission and while it’s fast, it simply cannot match the pleasure a driver gets from operating a manual shift lever and a clutch pedal. B is for Build’s Huracan uses the manual transmission from an Audi R8 so in theory, it should operate very smoothly and also retains the gated shifter design of the R8.

Lamborghini itself once explored selling both the Aventador and Huracan with available manual transmissions but decided against it claiming it would be unable to justify the costs. If the Lamborghini Huracan had launched a couple of years earlier than it did, a manual would have been more conceivable as the Audi R8 was being sold with a stick shift. Unfortunately, by the time the Huracan did hit the market, the six-speed once used by the R8 was no longer being produced.

B is for Build isn’t the only company working on a manual Lamborghini Huracan. Not too long ago, European Auto Group out of Texas revealed that it is also working on producing and selling a select number of Huracans with stick shifts. It is also doing the same with the Ferrari 458 Italia and 2020 Toyota Supra.

While it’s sad that car manufacturers such as Lamborghini don’t sell cars with manual transmissions anymore, it’s good to know that tuning companies are willing to make the investment to keep them alive.

    Such a fail. What were they thinking with that lever position???

    • Six_Tymes

      agreed, this is a FAIL. awful positioning, they obviously didn’t think this through. Maybe that’s why they are the first, because everyone else already knew it would suck having the lever where it would end up. This “build” belongs in the category of, just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

        I’m surprised that they did not consider putting it instead of the switches above starter button. That would be a very good position (carrera gt style) and making some good looking switches in other place is not impossible. This would be so awkward to operate…

          Maybe they couldn’t
