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.
