Introducing:the VF-Engineering VF800 Supercharger System (Patent Pending)
for the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4​

And so here it is. Eleven months in the making and we're finally able to roll up the garage door and unveil a project that has not only kept us busy for nearly a full calendar year, but one that has filled our building with a level of energy and excitement that you can only achieve when building something that is truly world class.

While supercharging performance cars is nothing new to us, this particular project started with a very specific goal in mind...
Bolt On Installation - Hypercar Speed - OEM Reliability​
Owner Doug Almond is also not new to supercars but insisted that this project had to be done, and it had to be done on his 2015 Huracan LP610-4. I believe that "I'm tired of waiting for Lamborghini to build a hypercar." were his exact words. So we took on the task knowing that we had come close to breaking the 800 horsepower barrier on our previous 5.2 liter V10 supercharger unit for the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Gallardo, and we knew exactly what it would take to get there with this car.



Knowing that we had to achieve 800+ horsepower while maintaining OEM drivability and reliability, we started by putting our engineering team from HEX Tuning to work on exploring the new dual MED17 ECU's. We had confidence in generating the needed boost pressures with the highly efficient Eaton TVS2300 roots-type supercharger unit, but it was going to take precise calibration of the camshaft timing maps to allow for appropriate charging of the combustion cylinders to optimize power. Keeping the charged air cool was made possible with an integrated air/water after-cooling system.

With all of the hardware bolted into place, and the base calibrations flashed into the ECU, all that was left was put in the necessary time on the dyno and on the open roads to ensure that our calculated efforts not only worked in theory, but performed exactly as expected in the real world. After a few more months of real world calibration testing we achieved our goals by topping out at 805 horsepower and 610 ft. lbs. of torque!

This weekend the car will be transported to Las Vegas, Nevada to be seen by the tens of thousands of industry professionals attending the 2015 SEMA Show. If you're one of the many who will be present, be sure to stop by the Rotiform Wheels booth (#62110) and take a peak for yourself. For the rest of you who may not be so fortunate, but sure to keep track of us by Facebook and Instagram as Doug has a host of racing events he and the Huracan will be participating in throughout the rest of the year and into 2016.

I asked this same question on another thread, did you have to get rid of the X brace to fit the charger?

I may have seen and responded to your question on LamboghiniTalk, but I'm sure others may have the same question...

That particular photo in the original post was shot without the X Brace to offer a better look at the OEM-like fit and finish of the supercharger.

It was absolutely designed to work with the factory X Brace in place as you can see in the photo below!

Looks really nice .. love the Huracan video ... but one question ... I'm considering of installing my VF kit on the brand new Audi R8 V10+ ... is there kind of conversion kit one can buy to fit the "old" V10 kit on the new R8?

Thx

Hey Iggi,

I just sent you a Private Message to answer your question.

You save 50k buying the new R8 V10 Plus over a huracan. VF800 is around £25k fitted? In the UK at least. Seems like a brilliant option to me. £25k to spend on options and £25k to spend and have an 800hp R8 vs a 610hp Huracan.

True dat! I'm sure you can get the lambo-style doors fitted for way less than 25K
