The meaner baby Lambo looks just about ready to lose the camo and reveal its numerous aerodynamic body revisions.

We had hoped to see the Huracan Superleggera in Paris, but Lamborghini did not attend the show in France’s capital at all. We probably won’t have to wait much longer for an official reveal taking into account this test vehicle seems to carry the production-spec body. Even though the prototype is clad in camouflage, it’s easy to notice the new range-topping model will feature a great number of aero tweaks compared to the lesser versions of the lineup.

The most obvious change is represented by the adoption of a massive wing at the back where we also see the GT3-like exhaust with two fat tips. The rear bumper also has an interesting shape and hosts a prominent diffuser, while the extra air intakes noticeable at the rear are able to cool down what will be an upgraded version of the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine shared with the Audi R8. Lamborghini is also making some substantial changes to the front bumper, and there might be other modifications that we can’t notice because of the swirly camouflage.

In order to live up to its “Superleggera” (meaning “super light”) name, the new flagship of the Huracan family will lose some fat compared to the standard AWD model, which has a dry weight of 1,422 kilograms (3,135 pounds). In addition, the diet will be complemented by a beefier version of the V10 engine compared to the standard unit’s 610 horsepower (449 kilowatts) and 413 pound-feet (560 Newton-meters) of torque.

The more aerodynamic body corroborated with a weight loss (estimated at 100 kg / 220 lbs) and a bump in output (rumored to stand at 40 hp) will enable the Huracan Superleggera run to 62 mph (100 kph) from a standstill in around three seconds. We’re making this estimation based on the fact that the regular LP 610-4 model does the sprint in 3.2 seconds before topping out at more than 201 mph (325 kph).

As to when we will actually get to see the car in all of its glory, chances are it will be revealed online in the months to come, prior to a public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
