Mansory has plied its controversial expertise to the Lamborghini Huracán, claiming to have shaved the Italian’s kerb weight and significantly improved performance.
Due to debut at the Geneva motor show early next month, Mansory’s all-black Huracán boasts an aggressive widebody largely wrought of carbonfibre. There are also new wing mirrors and daytime running lights alongside the aerodynamic flicks and blades of the coachwork, but all of this is merely an hors d’eouvre to the monumental figures the car now spits out.

Modifications to Lamborghini’s exhaust system, a new fuel pressure control, new fuel injectors, remapped engine and transmission settings and a turbocharger combine to see power from the Audi-sourced 5.2-litre V10 increase from 602 to 838bhp.
The standard car is not known for lacking low-down shove, but there’s also now 575lb ft of torque available, which is largely responsible for a claimed 0-62mph time of just 2.9 seconds – 0.3sec quicker than the factory Huracán.
A claimed top speed of 205mph makes Mansory’s car no faster than standard, however an Aventador Superveloce-style wing is said to increase downforce on the rear axle.
At 20 inches, the Mansory Huracán’s front wheels are no larger in diameter than the standard car, but the rears are an inch larger at 21in. The rear 325-section rubber is also noticeably wider.
Mansory hasn’t published an exact kerb weight for its Huracán, but with additional bodywork, larger wheels, and plumbing for the turbocharger, its unlikely to be much lighter than the standard car’s respectable 1523kg.
Traditionally evo hasn’t received Mansory’s work with quite the same enthusiasm that, say, Stile Bertone’s creations manage to generate, but by the standards of the German tuning house this car seems mercifully understated. The front graphic could perhaps even pass off as something from Sant A’gata wearing a ‘Trofeo Stradale’ badge. The rear, however, is as belligerent as you might expect.
Other Mansory-fettled Lamborghinis currently on offer include a ‘Stage 3’ Aventador with a tarmac-shredding 1183bhp and a transmission-shattering 701lb ft, and a ‘Stage 1’ Reventon with almost as much power. The Aventador Roadster-based ‘Carbonado Apertos’ is also worth investigating if ridiculous power and similarly outlandish aesthetics are your bag.
