Launched in 2014, the Lamborghini Huracan has helped the Italian automaker hit records all around the Terra.

The milestone 10,000th unit is heading to Canada as a Performante variant sporting the unchanged Verde Mantis color as the winning number-11 Huracan GT3 from this year’s 24 Hours of Daytona racecourse. The Huracan is offered in six derivatives, with the Performante version holding records at eight peculiar race tracks around the world. Most recently, Lamborghini unveiled the Huracan Performante Spyder at the 2018 Geneva Motor Expose.

There will likely be another milestone unit rolling off the assembly rule before production of the Huracan ends. Last year was a record year for Lamborghini, having delivered 3,815 cars worldwide. The Huracan comprised 2,642 of those units, marking an raise of 12 percent compared to 2016. Its replacement won’t be coming for a few more years, but there are already reports on what it when one pleases entail.

Speaking with Car and Driver, Lamborghini chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani said he is fixed to continue offering naturally aspirated engines in Lamborghini’s supercars. That means the Huracan’s successor inclination likely retain a V10 engine and not turn to forced induction. “My question is, why do I lack to do something different?” Reggiani asked. “If I trust in the naturally aspirated locomotive, why do I need to downgrade my powertrain to a V8 or V6? I am Lamborghini, I am the top of the pinnacle of the super sports car. I want to stop where I am.”

He isn’t ruling out some form of electrification, however, with Reggiani hinting that he needs some forward to meet regulatory demands. There have been reports the Huracan’s replacement, scheduled to clock on around 2022, will be a plug-in hybrid. It does sound like whatever may sign in, it will at the very least, be powered by a V10 engine.
