Lamborghini used the Milan Design Week as the platform to showcase a special run of its Huracan models. The carmaker is marking its 60th anniversary this year, and these limited-series Huracan supercars form part of the celebration, following the marque’s main event, the launch of its Lamborghini Revuelto flagship in March.

Three limited-run specials will number 60 examples each, for a total production count of 180 units. They are the Super Trofeo Omologata (STO); Tecnica; and Evo Spyder. Each model will feature two custom fashion-influenced colour combinations and 60th-anniversary badging. 

The Huracan STO 60th Anniversary Edition livery draws inspiration from sportswear and athletic team kit. The first colour scheme available on that model blends shades of blue with black, while the second is a more subtle tone of gray over black. Meanwhile, the black, gray, red, green, and white colours worn by the Huracan Tecnica Anniversary Edition represent colourways borrowed from motorsports, as well as the Italian flag.

Lastly, the Huracan Evo Spyder Anniversary Edition wears a variation of the colour schemes available on the other two. The first one is finished in Blu Le Mans bodywork accented with Bianco Isi (white) details. The other also boasts white exterior accents, but this time on a Verde Viper (green) background.

“The special editions of the Huracan not only celebrate the 60th anniversary of our brand, but also give our customers maybe the last chance to purchase an otherwise sold-out V10-powered Lamborghini,” said Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann. The Huracan is one of the carmaker’s most successful models, and is already sold out through 2024.

Little is known about the car’s successor, expected at the end of 2024, save for the fact it will also boast some form of hybrid powertrain, similar to Lamborghini’s new flagship, the Revuelto. However, fear not, if you think that an electrified powertrain will dilute the soul of the upcoming supercar. In a launch ad for the hybrid Revuelto, the trademark howl of the naturally aspirated V12 is heard as the car races through city streets. And, yes, the symphony is accompanied by belching flames from the exhaust tips.

It’s proof that while Lamborghini’s traditionally naturally aspirated powertrain may slowly be giving way to hybrid setups, the essence and all the associated drama of its supercars has been preserved. There’s no reason to expect that it will be different for the Huracan’s successor.
