The Lamborghini Huracan may not get the same send-off as the Aventador

Don't expect a special edition for the Italian V10 supercar

Lamborghini announced the end of the Aventador range with the release of the 'Ultimae' – the most powerful Aventador ever made. But, it looks like the Huracan won't get the same 'special edition' treatment as its older sibling.

When speaking to Autocar, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said: "The V12 is so defining for Lamborghini that we received massive requests to do something special at the end of the [Aventador's] life cycle. I think this is unique, for sure, and then we will see what we do for other cars." This comment suggests the Huracan will have a quieter send-off than the Aventador did.

The Huracan launched in 2014 as the successor to the Gallardo and took the world by storm. It shared a lot with Audi's new R8, most notably, its 5.2-litre V10 engine. Since it launched all those years ago, it has been through various editions including the Performante, Spyder variants, EVO, Sterrato concept, and now the STO.

At the top of the food chain, the STO is the brand's most brutal Huracan that's powered by the same 630-hp 5.2-litre V10 as the Huracan Performante, but weighs just 2,952 pounds, enabling it to sprint to 62 mph in three seconds and onto a top speed of 193 mph.

Do you think the Huracan deserved a big send-off?

  • Interesting story about this Huracan. Very early production model that was supposed to be shown at the Paris Auto Show. Crashed by someone trying to take a photo on the way there. I took this picture at the Lamborghini factory just before it left in the hands of the WSJ auto journalist who was unhurt in that accident.

  • The new STO is the only huracan I like but I still think it deserves a grand goodbye when the time comes

  • It 100% deserves a send off. It’s so weird seeing all these cars get discontinued that shaped my childhood. I knew it would happen but now so many have been discontinued within the last couple of years. Wow.

  • Probably the best ‘drivers car’ Lamborghini has ever produced so whatever replaces it has a high benchmark to meet
