The highly anticipated Lamborghini Gallardo successor will reportedly eschew the Cabrera name and adopt the Huracan moniker.

The highly anticipated Lamborghini Gallardo successor will reportedly eschew the Cabrera name and adopt the Huracan moniker.

Nothing is official but Auto Express is reporting Lamborghini trademarked the name last April and a source has confirmed it will be used on the Gallardo successor. The magazine goes on to say Huracan is Mayan for the "god of fire, wind and storms" and was eventually adopted as the Spanish word for hurricane.

As we have previously reported, the model is expected to use a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces approximately 600 bhp (447 kW). It will likely be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which could enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in roughly 3.2 seconds.
