This Lamborghini is ‘the world’s fastest purpose-built camera car’

If you like fast cars and expensive camera gear, look no further. What you see above is a Lamborghini Huracan with a $500,000 dollar camera gimbal attached to the front—a machine its creators have dubbed “the world’s fastest purpose-built camera car.”

Created by Incline Dynamic Outlet (IDO), a California-based company that usually specializes in aerial camera rigs, the so-called Huracam was built over the course of ‘many months.’

The frame for this elaborate setup is a $200,000 Lamborghini Huracan. Attached to the inside of the hood of said Huracan is a half-a-million dollar camera gimbal setup created by Gyro-Stabilized Systems (GSS) and fabricated to fit the vehicle by IDO. Inside the gimbal is a RED Helium 8K camera with the option to mount multiple lenses—a fittingly expensive camera for an unbelievably expensive camera car.

If you’re wondering how IDO was able to mount the gimbal inside the hood of the Lamborghini, it’s because the Huracan is a mid-engine vehicle. This means the massive 610-horsepower V10 engine sits towards the rear of the car, centered behind the driver and passenger seats, effectively turning the hood of the car into a trunk.

Unmodified, the Lamborghini Huracan has a zero-to-60 speed of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 miles per hour. We don’t have the specs on how well it performs with the massive camera attached to the front, but it’s safe to say there’s a slight sacrifice in speed and acceleration.

Below is a gallery of Instagram posts showing off the Huracam in all its glory:
