Front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and rear wing cost £20,000; fitting costs around £1660 extra

Lamborghini has added a new aerodynamic kit to the options list of its Huracán supercar.

The all-carbonfibre kit, which costs about the same as a new Ford Mondeois made up of a front splitter that runs under and around the front bumper, side skirts that extend into winglets ahead of the car’s rear intakes, a more prominent rear diffuser and a fixed rear wing with upright ends.

The kit has been tested in Lamborghini’s wind tunnel but the car maker isn’t quoting any increases in downforce. Instead, it says the kit is an aesthetic modification only.

Because of the kit’s carbonfibre construction, it retails from £20,360, which is just £135 less than the starting price of a new Mondeo.

Fitment can be handled by official Lamborghini dealerships, where the going rate for hourly labour is about £184.80. Lamborghini says it takes between eight and nine hours for the kit to be fitted, so the total bill for purchase and fitment could reach an eye-watering £22,023.

However, unlike the aerodynamic packages available on the aftermarket, this kit comes with the full approval of Lamborghini. And given that the going rate for a well-specced Huracán is about £180,000, the added exclusivity that the kit brings could make it a highly desirable option.

Our Verdict

Lamborghini Huracán

Junior supercar shows what it can do with a conventional (better) steering set-up

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
