These Guys Resurrected A Destroyed Lambo Huracan With A GM LS V8 And A Manual ‘Box

We actually heard about the world’s first Lamborghini Huracan with a six-speed manual gearbox a few months ago, when American shop ‘B is for Build’ inserted the gearbox from an Audi R8 into Sant’Agata Bolognese’s baby supercar.

So if you’ve always wanted a gated 6-speed instead of the Huracan’s factory-standard seven speed dual-clutch gearbox, then we imagine you’d be onboard with what’s going on here. Oh and the gear lever itself, that came from a Gallardo.

If your goal was to build a car worthy of SEMA, then the gearbox swap would have probably been enough to make this Huracan stand out. However, the guys from B is for Build didn’t stop there. In fact, they replaced the Lambo’s stock V10 engine with a tuned LS V8 engine from Texas Speed, capable of producing 1,500 HP at the wheels.

Then came the other mods, like the wide-body kit, the carbon fiber inserts, the new flat bottom and top steering wheel, custom wheels, custom hood and a whole bunch of other stuff that you wouldn’t normally expect to see on a Huracan.

Also, since this car now has a manual transmission, one might wonder what the crew did with the paddle shifters since they weren’t removed. Spoiler alert – they now operate as turn signal stalks, which is both interesting and hilarious at the same time.

Now the only question is how fast is this car really over a 1/4 mile? Hopefully we’ll get to find out soon.

    The question is why?

    And now they destroyed it again but this time in the looks department.

  • It’s not just carbon inserts, the whole body is carbon fiber

    The first sin was putting a GM V8 in to it. Then they completely fu*ked the rest of it.

    If I have to be honest I was in the hate group, but now I kinda see your point and agree that sometimes it is more important to have fun the way you see it rather than complying with the norms.

      And last I heard, this Lamborghini was a fan favorite at SEMA too.

    It had a fantastic effect against my constipation. Thanks for showing it. Being abroad i was suffering of a bit of clogged pipelines.
