The 10,000th Lamborghini Huracan is very green

And it could be momentous: is this the last year supercars dominate Lambo sales?

This is the 10,000th Lamborghini Huracan. Yep, the days of supercars being exclusive and rare are over. Well, broadly.

It’s taken around four years to reach the figure, during which time the Huracan range has swelled to six cars: the coupe and Spyder in rear- and four-wheel-drive forms, and the hardcore Performante, now available with both hard and soft tops.

The Huracan is central to a record year of sales for Lamborghini. In 2017, it delivered 3,815 cars, of which 70 per cent were Huracans, the rest Aventadors. It may be the last year it holds the majority of Lambo sales; the Urus arrives very soon and it’d be foolish to bet against the SUV being Lambo’s best seller by this time next year.

So the picture above could be a momentous occasion; the last time a mid-engined, highly strung supercar was Lamborghini’s core car, at least by measure of production numbers. Which is a slightly emotional thought. Or is that just us?
