The latest iteration of Lamborghini’s mid-engined V10 Supercar, the Huracan, arrived in 2014 with as much drama as you would expect the Raging Bull would. Designed by Fillippo Perini, the aggressively sharp body lines match the ferocious performance that it is capable of.
As the successor to the very popular Lamborghini Gallardo, it can be specified as a coupe or as a Spyder. The track oriented Performante, introduced in 2017, can also be specified as a coupe or Spyder. The high-mileage examples out there have proven it to be a quite reliable vehicle with regular maintenance.
The Lamborghini Huracan Service Guide will be of use to owners looking to get the most out of their Supercar. It will detail the recommended maintenance schedule to keep the performance and life of your
Huracan at it’s full potential. GI Automotive has the skill and the facilities to carry out all factory recommended maintenance procedures.
The Huracan comes equipped with a heavily revised version of the naturally aspirated dual overhead camshaft 5.2L V10 found in the Lamborghini Gallardo. The engine utilizes both direct injection and muli-
point fuel injection systems in order take advantage of either system, depending on the driving conditions.
The dry-sump oil system helps lubricate in extreme driving conditions and lowers the centre of gravity. With 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque transmitted to all four wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, it boasts some of the most impressive acceleration numbers in it’s class.
The transmission is laid out in a rear transaxle configuration with an integrated locking mechanical differential. It sends power to the front via a BorgWarner electronically controlled wet multi-clutch system.
The Lamborghini Huracan Service Guide recommends these maintenance intervals:
Annual or every 9,000 miles
-Replace Engine Oil & Filter
-Inspection of Brake Systems
-Inspection of Fluid Levels & Top-Up if Necessary
-Inspect Front & Rear Suspension Systems
-Inspection of Chassis Underbody
-Inspection of Tire Wear
Every 2 years or 18,000 Miles (Includes 9,000 Mi Service Plus:)
-Replace Spark Plugs
-Inspect Belts & Tensioners
-Replace Brake Fluid
-Replace Pollen & Air Filters
-Inspect A/C Condenser & Radiator
Every 3 years or 27,000 Miles (Includes 18,000 Mi Service Plus:)
-Replace Transmission Fluid
-Inspect EVAP System
-Inspect Injection & Ignition Systems
-Inspect Oxygen Sensors
-Calibrate Headlight Aiming
The Lamborghini Huracan’s 5.2L V10 uses timing chains and should last the lifetime of the car. However, they should be inspected regulary in order to make sure that the links aren’t stretched or the timing gears aren’t worn/chipped.
Note that the Lamborghini Huracan Service guide is recommending this maintenance schedule if driven regularly on public roads. If the vehicle is tracked, wear and tear will be accelerated and should be serviced earlier and more frequently than the schedule outlined above.
Brakes, Rotors, Pads, Fluid
As fast as the Lamborghini Huracan is, it needs to stop just as fast in order to really outperform its rivals.
Being the Supercar that it is, the Huracan comes equipped with some serious braking capability. The massive slotted and drilled carbon-ceramic rotors measure 380mm in diameter for the front wheels, and 356mm for the rear.
They are clamped down on the front by 6-piston monoblock aluminum calipers, and 4-piston in the rear.
The brake rotors themselves should last the lifetime of the vehicle. However, brake pad wear will vary based on driving conditions and driving style. The harder someone is on their brakes, the more frequently
they must be changed.
This is why it is important to inspect the brake wear at each service interval. Brake fluid must be changed every year to ensure that the system isn’t contaminated with moisture, air, or dirt.
Tires, Suspension & Alignment
As standard, the Lamborghini Huracan rides on double wishbone suspension with passive dampers. There is an option to specify adjustable magnetorheological shocks on all four corners. They are able to adjust
stiffness electronically via a switch in the cabin.
The suspension system and the geometry should be checked annually at each service.
The suspension’s job is to not only keep a comfortable ride; it is also to provide optimal handling characteristics. Properly functioning suspension will keep alignment within specification in a straight line as well as in the corners.
Moreover, this keeps the tires from wearing unevenly. At each service interval, it is recommended to check the suspension components for any squeaks, rattles, leakage, or play.
Alignment can seriously affect both tire wear as well as the handling characteristics of a car.
Therefore, it is imperative that the alignment is checked on a regular basis.
The Lamborghini Huracan Service Guide recommends checking camber, castor, and toe for tolerances within factory specification, or a custom specification if deemed necessary.
Tires are also wearable items that need to be checked at every service interval. Unfortunately, many owners tend to ignore their tires. As they are the only part of your vehicle that are in contact with the ground, they affect handling, acceleration, braking, and crucially, safety. Wear will vary depending on driving conditions, driving style, and whether or not the vehicle is all-wheel drive or not.
