The Lamborghini name is one of the most iconic in automotive history, and the LP610-4 Huracan holds true to that title. Serving as the successor to the best selling Lamborghini ever, the Gallardo, the Huracan had big shoes to fill. It was the second we received, so by then we were familiar with the performance it brings. It checks off all the typical Lamborghini criteria easily- amazing looks, exceptional agility, and an outrageously powerful stock engine.

Driving the Huracan was an empowering experience. The Galdlardo was a great vehicle to drive, as it shared BMW mantra and feeling of the Ultimate Driving Machine- it felt like a natural extension of the body, like an arm or a leg. The Huracan shared this connected experience, however it was like as if a cybernetic enhancement was added. The interior was like any other Lamborghini, designed like a nimble fighter jet to be efficient, agile, and light.  Despite this, it was still a surprisingly comfortable car to drive- we took it into the crowded, hectic streets of Chicago numerous times without an issue.

While the Huracan was a great supercar from the factory, there was still plenty to improve on. Being our second Huracan, we were ready to push the envelope to make it one of the most unique packages we’ve ever created.

The redesign of the exhaust system was of course, the most extensive and awe inspiring changes we made. Lamborghini exhausts are always unique to create, due to the nature of them being mid-engine super cars. The lack of pipe distance means that passive heat transfer does not occur prior to the exhaust leaving the vehicle. As a result, we took extra time to analyze the heat transfer characteristics to ensure that the engine bay stays cool as possible under throttle, while still maintaining maximum flow using 63mm and 76mm piping. Increasing the flow means that the scavenging capabilities were vastly improved, giving significant power improvements along with the unmistakable, premium, Meisterschaft sound. Our dyno results showed an increase of 20 Horsepower and 14 ft/lbs of torque through the entire rev band.

The specific exhaust designed for this model was our signature GTC (EV Control) unit, actuated via the OEM drive mode controls. This means that the exhaust had two modes- one with the loud, powerful sound that you can expect from Meisterschaft while the valves are open- and the other a quieter, more passive sound for when that noise isn’t necessary. The system itself is a work of art, constructed from T-304 Stainless Steel (or Titanium) with meticulously crafted TIG welds. We replaced the OEM tips with the Meisterschaft dual wall LeMans style tips, (2x(120+102)mm Round Split) which were a better aesthetic fit for the aggressive angles of the Huracan’s rear bumper. It’s a dramatic change, cleaning up the looks of the rear end significantly.

Not only did we want the Huracan to sound great, we also wanted it to look great. The first phase of that was designing a beautiful set of wheels. The result was the Meisterschaft GT-1 Forged Duo Block with a Brushed Red finish. The front size we kept the same at 20×8.5”, but we increased the size of the rear wheels to 21×12” from 20×11” to give a slight increase in traction to further enhance the handling capacity of the vehicle. The look of these wheels was in a word, unique- one of the most interesting color combinations we’ve seen with the matte-black bodywork that really makes it standout from the crowd.

The final improvement we made was with the creation of a set of GTHAUS RAD-Dynamics Lowering Springs. These really improve the appearance of the car, maintaining functionality while giving it that mean look you would expect out of an exotic Lamborghini. It was lowered 1.5” in the front and 1.0” in the rear. While this might seem like a modest height to lower the Huracan, it provides a far more stable feel to the vehicle due to the lower center of gravity.

Our second Lamborghini Huracan turned out to be a huge success with all these parts put together. The car looked incredible, sounded incredible, and was far faster than the stock variant. This was as a result of our package of a GTC (EV Control) exhaust system, Meisterschaft GT-1 Forged Duo Block wheels, and GTHAUS RAD-Dynamics Lowering Springs. All installation was done at our in-house shop, Dream Werke.
