You all know that Lamborghini doesn’t build the amount of cars that Nissan or Toyota does but it is now making more vehicles than it ever has and proof of this is the fact it has managed to surpass the total number of its Gallardo’s 10-year production in just five years with the Huracán.
That’s right - in just five years of production, Huracán number 14,022 rolled off the assembly line to mark a production milestone for the V10 model of Lamborghini. In comparison, the Gallardo (the previous Lambo V10), totalled 14,022 units over a production cycle of ten years from 2003 to 2013. Sure, this may be less than a day’s total output for the two Japanese giants but still, it’s a minor miracle for the Italians who are now churning out the Urus SUV which is also a cash cow helping them almost double sales in the first half of 2019.
The Huracán successor to the iconic Gallardo debuted in 2014 with the coupé and it was soon followed by the Spyder and the rear-wheel-drive Performante (2017) and Performante Spyder (2018) which proved their performance capabilities, holding several lap records. In 2019 the new Huracán EVO (coupé and Spyder) was introduced, featuring a next generation V10 and incorporating next-generation vehicle dynamic control and aerodynamics.
In the first six months of 2019 (from 1 January to 30 June) Automobili Lamborghini delivered a total of 4,553 cars to clients: an increase of 96 per cent compared to the same period last year. The Huracán accounted for 1,211 units, including deliveries during the Huracán Performante’s phase-out period and introduction of the new Huracán EVO, of which first customer deliveries started in June 2019. The Aventador, the V12 brand icon headed by the SVJ model, maintained its high levels, with 649 units delivered to customers.
The commemorative model with chassis number 14,022, a Huracán EVO coupé in Grigio Titans (grey), is destined for the Korean market.
