Lamborghini has announced a lighter and faster version of the Huracan will be launched.

In an interview with Autocar, the company’s chief executive, Stephan Winkelmann, revealed the Huracan was developed from day one to spawn a lot of derivatives. At least five are on the agenda, with the next one likely being an LP 580-2 Spyder. This would bring the total to five after the regular Huracan Coupe & Spyder, rear-wheel drive coupe and the track-only Super Trofeo.

Winkelmann went on to specify Lamborghini is analyzing many other possible iterations of the Huracan and he confirmed a more hardcore version is planned. He said it’s going to be lighter and more powerful than the standard model, so it will likely be labeled Superveloce or Superleggera. As a matter of fact, a mysterious prototype was spotted at the end of last month and chances are that was the beefier model.

In addition, Lamborghini has already revealed plans to introduce a special model at the Geneva Motor Show next year. According to sources close to Sant’Agata Bolognese, it will basically be an Aventador-powered Huracan with a bespoke body. It will use a 760-hp version of the V12 engine and only 20 coupes are planned for production. Rumored to be called “Centenario”, Winkelmann referred to this special model as being “beautiful” but “not as extreme as you might expect.” In other words, it won’t be as crazy as the Aventador-based Veneno.
