New spy shots from the Nürburgring show Lamborghini is hard at work preparing a quicker Huracan.
Lamborghini has been testing a meaner Huracan for almost a year now, so most likely the plan is to show it to the world later this year. When it will break cover, the Huracan Superleggera (name not confirmed) will look a lot different than these two cars which are merely test mules. That being said, the two do show something that will end up on the production car, the dual exhaust tips mounted to the left and right of the license plate.
This new exhaust system will be derived from the track-only Huracan GT3 which means the hardcore version of Lamborghini’s baby bull will eschew the quad exhaust tips of the regular model. These were still installed on the two test mules just to throw us off since the real exhaust was connected to the two upper tips.
Now that we’ve covered the subject of the exhaust, it’s time to mention the other changes the folks from Sant’Agata Bolognese will make. For starters, the Huracan is certainly going to lose some weight if it wants to live up to its Superleggera name (“super light” in Italian). The regular model tips the scales at 3,135 pounds (1,422 kilograms, dry) and we expect a diet of at least 110 pounds (50 kilograms).
Aside from hitting the gym, the beefier Lamborghini Huracan will also pack more punch from its naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine. It’s good enough for 610 horsepower (449 kilowatts) and 412 pound-feet (560 newton meters) right now, but we’re sure there is room for improvement to squeeze more output for the go-faster version.
Less weight corroborated with more power will certainly have a positive impact on the supercar’s performances. We could see the Huracan Superleggera hitting 62 mph (100 kph) in just three seconds since the regular model does it in 3.2 seconds. A minor increase in maximum velocity could be on the agenda as well over the current 202 mph (325 kph).
Lamborghini could decide to show us the quicker Huracan at the beginning of October during the Paris Motor Show. If that’s going to be the case, expect an online reveal in September.
