The Lamborghini Huracan was unveiled back in 2014, and being a typical Lambo model won’t be complete without the more hardcore Superleggera variant. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long for that day to come.
Seen here are the pictures of the Huracan Superleggera prototype snapped during its test run stint at the Nurburgring. The latest scoop revealed it’s equipped with more aerodynamic parts, ranging from front and rear diffusers, a revised front bumper and a large rear wing. Also at the back, the dual exhaust pipes are housed in the middle, which look suspiciously production ready. It’s uncertain if the new exhaust will provide performance boost (they probably would) but perhaps the photographer behind these spy shots had a ‘crackling’ time with all the aural pleasure.
As for now, the standard Huracan in LP610-4 guise is powered by a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 that pushes out 610 hp and 560 Nm of torque. Power is delivered to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox. Century sprint is dusted in 3.2 seconds and it goes onto a top speed of 323 km/h. Predictably, the lighter and more powerful Huracan Superleggera will eclipse all these standard figures.
Being a Superleggera variant means the Huracan will undergo tremendous diet through more extensive use of carbon-fibre body parts and the removal of several components in the cabin. As its predecessor, the Gallardo Superleggera shedded 100kg, so expect a similar weight loss for the Huracan. It now has a dry weight of 1,422kg.
There’s no mention of its official unveiling, but our best guess is the Paris Motor Show which will take place in October. We wait with bated breath!
