Lamborghini Built 14,022 Huracans in Five Years

That might not sound impressive, but it took the company twice as long to build the same number of Gallardos.

Lamborghini announced today it has built exactly 14,022 Huracans since it launched the car five years ago in 2014. Why make an announcement about such a specific number? Well, it matches the amount of Gallardos—the Huracan's predecessor—the factory built in total, from 2003 to 2013. That means there are now as many Huracans in the world as Gallardos. It also means it took Lamborghini just five years to hit the 14,000-mark for the Huracan, and twice the amount of time to do it with the Gallardo.

It all comes down to increased demand, more available trims, and a streamlined production process. The Huracan is one of the most capable supercars on sale today, and comes standard with an exotic naturally-aspirated V-10 engine—something not many other new supercars have. Buyers can choose between coupe and convertible body styles, along with rear- or all-wheel drive. Its newest variant, the Evo, uses the 631-horsepower engine from the Performante while incorporating rear-wheel steering for added agility. It's no wonder the car is so popular.

Lamborghini says it sold 4553 cars in the first six months of 2019, with 1211 of those being Huracans. The company claims that's a 96-percent increase versus the same period last year. Car number 14,022, a Huracan Evo coupe painted in Grigio Titans (above), is heading to a buyer in Korea. At this rate, Huracan production could double Gallardo numbers by the time production is over. We're curious to see how long that wonderful V-10 soundtrack sticks around.
