Scoop: Lamborghini Offers Aftersales Performance Exhaust for Huracan, Listen to It

Lamborghini just released the official technical movie for its brand spanking new Huracan. Basically, instead of reading pages and pages of details about the V10 supercar, you can watch the clip and then go to your friends, pretending you just got a new job and you have to move out to Sant’Agata Bolognese. But any of your mates can pretend to have become a Lamborghini engineer for 5 seconds. If you want to stay ahead of them, you can check out the other video included in this story.

This shows a Bianco Monocerus Huracan revving its Iniezione Diretta Stratificata lungs out. Stop for a moment though. This is not just an impression, this example of the Huracan sounds even fiercer than the already-majestic Huracan concerts we’ve enjoyed before.

That’s because its 5.2 liters of naturally-aspirated engine talk to us via a Performance Exhaust. Yes, what Lamborghini forgot to mention in the deliciously nerdy clip above is that you can fit your Huracan with a Performance Exhaust. Apparently, the standard system, already gifted with sound-controlling flaps, was not enough.

Truth be told, Aventador owners used to remove the floor panels of their cars in order to access the sound-controlling valves in the exhaust and “disable them”. But that meant your Lambo went around screaming all the time, quite a big trade-off. The Raging Bull subsequently came up with a... Performance Exhaust.

Returning to the Huracan Performance Exhaust, this is offered as an aftersales part. What this means is that you have to buy the car and then order it separately, you can’t just tick it on the list of options.

In Europe where the Huracan has already been unleashed, the Performance Exhaust will set you back around EUR 7,000.

While a Lamborghini source has confirmed to us that the Americans will also receive the aural-enhancing treatment, the pricing still requires some waiting. That’s because the first Huracan deliveries are scheduled for September-October and the US market info for the exhaust is not available yet. The estimated US price for the Huracan Performance Exhaust is $8,500, installation included.

As for the geeky side of the Performance Exhaust, all we know so far is that this changes more than just the rear muffler. We’ll be back on this orchestral topic as soon as we get our hands on more details. Meanwhile, you can dip into the Italian’s notes.
