Epic Art Car Collaboration: Lamborghini Huracan and Ducati in Perfect Harmony

Two Italian auto masterpieces by Paolo Troilo, a true artistic genius.

Lamborghini and Ducati, renowned names in the Italian automotive industry, have joined forces to honor the masterpieces of Paolo Troilo, the artist behind the striking Huracan art car featured below. Unveiled in 2021, the “Minotauro” has now been accompanied by a Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini counterpart, aptly named “Centauro.”

Under the ownership of a single individual, the Italian entertainers were turned into remarkable mobile masterpieces by Troilo. Utilizing his trademark hyper-realistic fingerpainting style, the artist embellished both individuals with incredible precision. After getting behind the wheel of a Lamborghini for the very first time, Troilo aimed to capture and convey the exhilaration of that moment through his artwork.

The exterior design of the Huracan Evo boasts a powerful set of muscular arms and clenched fists on its hood, while its sides display the silhouette of a strong male form. The fists are reminiscent of bull horns, perfectly aligning with the iconic Lamborghini image.

With its splatter-esque black designs and seamless shift from dark to light, the Huracan gives off a sense of velocity, strength, and liveliness as if it burst out of a canvas or the panels of a graphic novel. The Lamborghini and Ducati are currently being showcased at Art City Bologna, on display until February 5 at Galleria Cavour in Bologna, Italy. This is a unique opportunity to witness both pieces side by side before they are stored away in a personal collection.

“Experiencing the Lamborghini Huracan Evo and taking it for a spin made me realize that there are other things that can evoke the same level of energy, acceleration, speed, and momentum,” stated Troilo as he reflected on his work. “As I heard the wind howling and the space around me shrinking, time seemed to bend: I harnessed this powerful force to create art on the very source of my inspiration, the Huracan, my Minotauro.”

Lamborghini is well-acquainted with the world of art, often making appearances at Art Basel Miami with a variety of unique creations. In the previous year, the renowned Italian automaker premiered the Revuelto Opera Unica, highlighting the limitless potential for customization offered by their specialized Ad Personam division. Other artistic Lamborghinis have also graced the scene, such as the Huracan Sterrato Opera Unica, drawing inspiration from the vibrant colors and landscapes of Sardinia.

Naturally, the Huracan’s existence is limited. The upcoming successor has already been glimpsed during testing (although heavily disguised) and is set to debut this year featuring a hybrid engine, possibly a combination of plug-in technology and a twin-turbo V8 motor with high revving capabilities. It is rumored that it will have the ability to reach 10,000 rpm, with the turbochargers activating at 7,000 rpm. Undoubtedly, driving it will be an unparalleled and exceptional experience. However, we will undoubtedly long for the deafening roar of the V10.
