The Lamborghini Huracan is almost ready for extreme off-road races

For several months, the "B is for Build" channel on YouTube has been working to transform a Lamborghini Huracan into an extreme variant intended for use on dirt roads. Nicknamed as "Jumpacan", from Jump (jump) and -acan (Huracan), it retains only some key elements of the car originally produced in Sant'Agata Bolognese.

To be more precise, only part of the chassis has remained unchanged , all other components such as steering, suspension and interior have been drastically changed. The cockpit cell now benefits from a solid and sturdy tubular cage that ensures greater safety in the event of accidents and improved structural rigidity; there are also new 35 and 37 inch tires with specific off-road knobs.

Unfortunately, the Italian 5.2-liter V10 has been replaced by a 600 horsepower V8 LS (probably the same used on the Corvette Z06 and ZR -1) combined with a six-speed manual gearbox. The brakes instead come from a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. In short, it is a real Frankenstein on wheels that has nothing to do with the Huracan Evo Sterrato that Lamborghini itself has anticipated on several occasions in the past months. The performance and overall weight of the car are unknown even if we imagine respectable figures, almost close if not similar to those of the official road variant.

The car, now almost completed, will participate in the Mint 400, a race annual off-road in the American desert that takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada. Established in the late 1960s, it boasts participations from all over the world with truly illustrious guests such as Jay Leno, Steve McQueen, Bill Muncey and many others. The first race will be held in December and before then the youtuber has already stated that he will make further changes such as larger shock absorbers, reinforcement plates and a higher ground clearance.
