Supercharging a Lamborghini Huracan to 700 WHP Costs the Same as Buying a Performante

If you want lots of power and torque all the time instead of the ultimate lap time, a tuned Huracan might be the answer over the factory upgrade.

The thing about used Lamborghini Huracans is that they are not cheap, so you can't get a bargain like many have done with the Gallardo. Today, the cheapest Huracan LP 610-4 you can buy is around $210K, but most change hands for more than that. The Nurburgring record holder Huracan Performante starts at $274,390 in the US, but there's a waiting list as well as the fact that active aerodynamics still won't make it produce 700 horsepower and 550 lb-ft at the wheels.

Instead, the naturally-aspirated V10 produces 640 horsepower and 443 lb-ft, at the crank. If that's not enough for you, you'll need boost. Eight pounds of it to be exact, which will cost you an extra $45,000 if you trust your Lambo with VF Engineering.

Unlike the top-speed and drag racing kings at Underground Racing, VF Engineering uses superchargers to get the most out of the Italian technology. Their previous, $33,000 kit made the Huracan an alarmingly quick supercar, but now, for an extra $12,000, they can throw in more boost, a fresh ECU tune, an extra fuel pump and a very loud exhaust system with a touch too much backfiring action. The result is 700 horsepower and 550 lb-ft at the wheels.

Lamborgini's head of R&D, Maurizio Reggiani will tell you any day that you simply can't beat the response of a naturally-aspirated engine, and the VF900's insanely linear torque delivery certainly won't argue with that while out-accelerating any Performante.
