Have you ever wondered how supercars going at speed are filmed on camera? Well, they use a really fast camera car in order to keep up. To be exact, they use this Lamborghini Huracan which has been modified to have a RED Epic 8K camera installed into the hood, allowing the crew to shoot at higher speeds than before.
Incline Dynamic Outlet is the company behind the Huracan camera car. Called the Huracam, it uses a standard Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 as a base car. The hood was then removed and the trunk lined with sheet metal in order to fit the custom-made arm holding the RED Epic 8k camera. Gyro Stabilized System then built the gimbal. The wires then run into the camera which is operated by person in the passenger seat.
Aside from the hood modification to fit the RED Epic 8K camera, arm and gyro, there were no other changes made to the Huracan. The 5.2-liter V10 continues to produce 610 PS and is capable of a top speed of over 322 km/h. Well that’s if it had its hood on and didn’t have a big camera dangling in front. That said, the Huracam will still be more maneuverable and more agile than the traditional camera arm vehicles usually in the form of high performance SUVs such as the Porsche Cayenne.
Incline Dynamic Outlet claims that the Huracam is the fastest camera car in the world. While Bugatti did use a spare Chiron as a camera car for the 0 to 400km/h run, it was more of a one-time thing with a rig attached to the rear. Meanwhile, the Huracam will continue to be used in shooting some of the future high-speed scenes with might see on our screens.
