It Took Lamborghini Only Five Years To Deliver 14,000 Huracans

Despite the Gallardo being a commercially successful model for Lamborghini, its successor, the Huracan, has proved to be even more popular with customers.

The Italian car manufacturer recently confirmed that it has built 14,022 examples of the Huracan in the last five years. By comparison, it took Lamborghini a decade to sell that many examples of the Gallardo before it was replaced by the Huracan.

The Italian automaker says it has enjoyed such strong sales of the Huracan since its launch thanks to increased demand, an improved production process and more available trims. It also happens to be the only car in its class (alongside the Audi R8 V10) to feature a naturally aspirated V10 engine instead of a twin-turbo V8 rivals such as the McLaren 720S and Ferrari F8 Tributo.

The car pictured is number 14,022, a Huracan Evo that’s painted in Grigio Titans and purchased by someone in Korea.

It seems apparent that the Huracan will stick around for at least a few more years before being replaced. If this proves to be the case, a number of new and exciting variants can be expected to hit the production line. One of them will probably be a new, Huracan Evo-based Performante, while Lamborghini might also resurrect the Superleggera, which was last seen on the Gallardo.

The company has previously indicated that the successor to the Huracan will still feature a naturally aspirated V10 and meet emissions regulations thanks to some form of electrification that will likely consist of a small electric motor and battery pack.

    Here’s some real perspective. Between 1963 and 2004 with the introduction of the Gallardo, all models combined Lamborghini’s total production was less than 10,000 cars.

      I think tech has made a lot of people wealthy. Data has become the new gold rush.

      In the old days, starting a company involved manufacturing or sales, which employees many people. Now you can write a program in your dorm room, start a company on paper, sell it before graduation for half a billion. The internet has made it possible to start something without needing much.

    I would love to see more funding from Audi in Lamborghini in terms of engineering capabilities to see how they can achieve Ferrari’s and McLaren’s level.
