Track-oriented Huracan due soon

The previous entry-level Lamborghini, the Gallardo, came with a lightweight, track-focused model called the Superleggera. It would appear that its successor, the Huracan, will be having the same treatment soon. Our spy photographers captured a a more aggressive looking Huracan doing rounds in the Nurburgring.

This particular test car appears to have a more aggressive looking front bumper and front chin treatment. Like the Gallardo Superleggera, the more aggressive looking test car sports a large rear wing. It also gets a different rear end treatment with a new bumper and the exhaust pipes have been relocated higher up, just below the rear garnish.

The car's official name has yet to be set in stone but Huracan Superleggera is seen as its possible name. Like its predecessor, expect a significant weight loss from the track-oriented Huracan thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber and the removal of sound-deadening materials. As with Superleggera Lamborghinis, this particular Huracan may well get more horsepower.

Like the Gallardo, a Huracan will also gain a convertible version in the near future. No official name has been set for the top-down Huracan but reports lean towards the Spyder moniker. Our spies tell us that the higher-performance Huracan will arrive first and will be eventually followed by the Spyder. A Performante model is also being eyed for the Spyder.
