If you just cashed in a major lump sum and want to spend it on a supercar, here’s the all new Lamborghini Huracan being treated to a supercharge job by VF Engineering and delivering a model that trespasses into hypercar territory.
The Lamborghini Huracan is the Italian manufacturer’s entry level model, meaning it would be the first choice among those wanting a supercar with daily abilities. But swing by VF Engineering and their modifications will deliver your “base” supercar to the hypercar league in a heartbeat. VF Engineering has decided to go for the supercharging route instead of the usual tuning of nailing a couple of turbochargers – using an Eaton TVS2300 supercharger to lift the grunt of the V10 5.2-liter from the regular 602 bhp (449 kW) and 413 lb-ft (560 Nm) to a more muscular 805 bhp (600 kW) and 610 lb-ft (826 Nm) of torque.
The Californian tuner has developed a kit called VF800 and it also includes a bespoke aluminum intake manifold and a dual-air water charge cooler system. The whole contraption will be ready for $32, 995 and for the cash you’ll also receive a Bosch water pump, K&N induction filters, modified engine ECU and a high-density water radiator. VF Engineering adds the supercharger mod enables a very linear power bandwith as the torque is available from as low as 2,300 rpm. Additionally, the kit is also designed to be reversible, so if at some point you decided to go back to the regular naturally aspirated state you can do it without much fuss.
