For months, the B for Build YouTube channel has been working to transform a rescued Lamborghini Huracan into an insane SUV. Work on the car is complete and it has just passed its first mud tests.
The car is dubbed the Jumpacan and uses the passenger compartment of Lamborghini’s popular mid-engined V10 supercar. However, almost all other parts were new, including the suspension. It allows the car to handle difficult off-road conditions much better than any conventional Huracan.
B is for Build has equipped Lamborghini with a new tubular frame with unique chassis mounts and a dedicated off-road suspension system. The car was also equipped with massive 35-inch front and 37-inch rear tires, and the brakes were taken from the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
The 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine that once powered the Huracan no longer exists as it has been replaced by a 600 hp LS V8.
This motor is paired with a manual transmission. It can be argued that this is no longer a real Lamborghini, but it cannot be denied how unique it is.
YouTuber will be racing on The Mint 400 in Las Vegas from December 1-5. This test served as an important milestone to see if the mid-engined SUV is ready for the challenges of such an event. After test drives, Chris from B for Build said the car needs more ground clearance, a set of larger shock absorbers and some anti-slip plates before it’s ready to compete.
