Influencer Alex Choi Reveals the World’s Most Unique Lamborghini Huracan
You may have seen pictures of this Lamborghini on social media, with an exoskeleton and exposed twin turbo setup.
Pictures of this unusual Lamborghini Huracan have been making their rounds on social media for the past few weeks, but today, we bring you a closer look at the twin turbo rally car from owner, Alex Choi. Choi is best-known for his YouTube channel, where he showcases his BMW drift car, his Lamborghini that he calls the Unicorn and other high performance machines.
Choi recently upgraded his Huracan from V2 to V3, and the result is one of the most talked-about Lamborghinis online, featuring a hot pink exoskeleton safety cage, loads of LED lighting and a twin turbo kit that is bustin’ out all over the place.
Project in Progress
The video above begins with a series of shadowy rolling shots of Alex Choi’s Huracan in action, with a dramatic monologue that discussed the importance of you doing you. This car has been extremely controversial since the first pictures arrived online, making this the most significant comment in the introduction. Not everyone loves the exoskeleton look with the turbo parts sticking up around the rear end, but we think that it is a badass built that is truly unlike anything that we have eve seen.
“When you do things that nobody else would ever imagine, you’re being original, whether other people like it or not.”
After the short introduction, we get a quick look at the exoskeleton and the twin turbo setup being installed, but this footage is almost more of a tease than anything. We can see that they are welding up some tubing outside of the car and we can see that there is a big turbo kit being installed, but we really can’t see the finished product at first.
That changes just before the two-minute mark, when we jump to a photography studio with a white background and perfect lighting for a detailed discussion.
After a look at the uniquely decorated Lamborghini, Alex Choi enters to give us a thorough rundown of what makes this Huracan the most unusual of its kind. He begins by explaining that the car had been hidden from the public eye for roughly five months while the V3 build was underway. During that time, viewers speculated that Choi had crashed, blown-up or sold his Italian supercar, but with this video, he made it clear that his Unicorn was alive, well and in his possession.
“It’s the coolest thing that I’ve ever done in my life,” said Choi.
The walk-around begins up front, where Choi talks about the unique exoskeleton system that he calls monkey bars. This system was created by Studio RSR, the same shop that provided the cage in his BMW drift car, but with this car, he told the shop that he wanted something outrageous. Needless to say, it doesn’t get much more outrageous than a hot pink exterior safety cage system on a Lamborghini that removes some of the body panels, with the inspiration coming from the “flip car” in the eighth Fast and Furious movie.
In addition to installing the exoskeleton, Studio RSR removed the rear body work, so they had to come up with a new mounting design for the taillights. The team decided to flip the lights and mount them upside-down, adding a unique look with stock components. The back end also benefits from a carbon fiber APR wing that is mounted a foot higher than it was on V2, along with a prominent rear diffuser from MFR.
Finally, the exterior upgrades are completed with a host of LED lights including an array of police-style lights and Group B-style rally lights, as well as wheels from Brixton Forged that are wrapped in Michelin rubber.
One-of-One Twin Turbo Setup
While the exterior upgrades are more than enough to make this the most unique Huracan in the world, Choi didn’t stop there. He turned to SheepeyRace for their bolt-on twin turbo kit, but he didn’t want an off-the-shelf setup, because that would be too plain. Instead, the shop fabricated a one-off air-to-air intercooler system that uses foot-long K&N air filters and intake plumbing from a diesel big rig. Traditional Lamborghini twin turbo builds use air-to-water intercoolers because of space constraints, but when they removed the factory body panels, they made plenty of room for this unique induction setup.
Choi points out that the twin turbo kit made a huge difference over his supercharger package, making it seem like far more than just a basic bolt-on turbo kit.
The clip ends with Alex Choi promising that there is more to come for Unicorn V3 but in the meantime, he looks forward to hitting some local shows to see the reaction of viewers of the world’s most unusual Lamborghini Huracan.
