We have seen many fancy car camera rigs throughout the years, but there’s nothing I can recall that gets even close to this particular setup. Incline Dynamic Outlet, a US-based company that specializes in operating the world’s smallest and most advanced gyro-stabilized camera platforms capable of accommodating high-end cinema cameras like the RED Weapon and ALEXA Mini has recently showcased a modified $200,000 Lamborghini Huracán with a gyro-stabilized camera rig mounted on its frunk.
Surprisingly enough, the custom camera gimbal setup created by Gyro-Stabilized Systems (GSS) turned out to be twice more expensive than the sports car itself adding another half a million dollars to the final price of the project.
After initially testing out some of the fastest sports cars currently available out there, Incline Dynamic Outlet decided to opt for the Lamborghini Huracán. The modification of the sports car was an extremely time-consuming and expensive process as the build took months to finish costing nearly whopping $700,000.
One of the most serious challenges that the team stumbled upon was changing the center of gravity and altering the airflow of the Lambo. To do so, engineers had to lower the car 3/4 of an inch thus allowing the vehicle to accommodate the gyro-stabilized combo on the front while still being able to keep up with the world’s fastest cars.

The effort and cost were totally worth it, though, as the resulting camera car boasts over 600 horsepower with a 5.2-liter V10 engine alongside a top speed of 201 mph (323 km/h). This way, the Huracam can run considerably faster than pretty much any camera car on the market, which takes the filming of high-octane action sequences to a whole new level by giving a totally different feel and energy to the captured shots. It has been reported that Incline Dynamic Outlet has already partnered up with Sharp Electronics for the first project with the Huracam.
