The main critique people have of the new Lamborghini Huracan is that it is (a bit) boring.
Not boring like a normal hatchback, mind you.
This is still an explosive supercar with performance to shade the hottest Gallardo.
But boring to look at, not very interesting to hear and certainly not terrifying enough to live up to its Lambo roots.
Is the Huracan’s maturity just progress at making objectively better cars?
Or subjectivity clouding the skies of the new Lambo in the face of new competition from McLaren and others?
We cannot be certain.
Luckily for all, there is drama to spare on the aftermarket. This new custom Huracan package from Germany’s VOS addresses some of the Huracan’s perceived faults with a gorgeous group of interior and exterior carbon-fiber elements. The rear wing is the most eye-catching, but the diffuser in back and splitter up front also set a more-exciting mood than the factory Huracan.
To make your ears pop, two exhaust systems are available: the first is a VOS remote-activated sport exhaust for extra shout in tunnels as needed. The second is the fully-bonkers Akrapovic titanium setup. This Italian pipe-maker is world-renowned for making seriously sexy shouts come out even humdrum cars like the Abarth 500 Fiat. With this quad hifi, you can rest assured that your Huracan will never be called boring or too-quiet ever again!
