We’ve been closely following the career of Chris Steinbacher since he launched his B is for Build auto-focused Youtube channel back in 2015. While Steinbacher wrenches on just about everything — from a vintage Italian yacht to a custom V10-powered wide-body Datsun 240Z — it’s clear he has a major proclivity for churning out off-road vehicles. And after previously campaigning a Corvette “kart” at the Gambler 500, Chris has revealed his latest off-road competition car with a custom Lamborghini Huracan built to take on the Mint 400.
Dubbed the “The Jumpacan,” this exocage-bodied racer is the first-ever Lamborghini to be entered into the Mint. Constructed around a Huracan chassis that now boasts a 12-point roll cage, the off-road Lambo’s been gifted with a rear-mounted LS engine mated to a manual transmission. Off-road upgrades on the build include rock sliders, long-travel suspension with coil-overs, a race-spec fuel-cell, and a gutted interior with Corbeau racing seats and a race display. Though the race isn’t happening until December, Chris plans on continuing to add to the Jumpacan, aspiring to install better off-road suspension, a skid plate, and a few other elements to help survive the Nevada desert race.
