It is always nice if a car you are building gets an award, even better if we are talking about internationally acknowledged publications, and in the case of Automobili Lamborghini SpA it seemed their most successful models at this time, the Urus Super SUV and the Huracán STO got the most honored in 2021, in fact, House of Sant’Agata Bolognese doubled the number of awards they received compared to 2019.
Chris Harris, a famous journalist from Top Gear magazine in the UK, selected the Lamborghini Sián as the Electric Car of the Year during their Electric Awards, by now most of the 63 units from the Sián and the 19 Sián Roadster have been delivered to their customers, and Lamborghini is in the process of final homologation of their new Countach LPI 800-4.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise the very successful Lamborghini Urus Super SUV took a leading position among all the Lamborghini models, awarded for the second consecutive year by readers of the prestigious German magazine Auto Motor und Sport as Best Car in the Large SUV category (imported car category), and as Best SUV in the imported car category by the German magazine Sport Auto. It was also recognized by OFF ROAD (DE), which designated it the OFF ROAD AWARD in the Luxury SUV category.
It doesn’t seem the Lamborghini Aventador got any new awards this year, and we’re all waiting for the successor to be unveiled, but the Huracán V10 is still a steady selling supercar, which reflects with the Huracán STO being awarded twice by Motorsport Magazine (FR) as Sports Car of the Year and as Best Engine 2021, this fame was further enhanced by the CarBuzz website (USA), which designated it the 2021 Track Weapon.
And it wasn’t just the flagship V10 model that received acclaim this year, the Huracán EVO RWD version was awarded by the prestigious Robb Report (USA) as Sports Car of the Year 2021, and as the Best Convertible for 2021 by Robb Report Singapore as part of the Best of the Best competition; and by CarandBike magazine (IN) as Sports Car of the Year.
And we’re getting ready for some replacements as we speak, we all know the Aventador will be the first to be succeeded by a V12 Hybrid model, most likely towards the end of 2022 or early 2023, and we’re also on the verge of seeing the Urus facelift being introduced, and there are even rumors about a more sporty Urus version with a wide-body style, and we have to admit the fact the Huracán will be seeing a successor shortly after the Aventador, and while it’s been confirmed this will be another hybrid, there is no official confirmation we’ll still be getting a V10 engine … only time will tell.
For now, let’s take another look at some of the award-winning Lamborghini ‘made in Sant’Agata’ in our extensive image gallery below:
