- Will get a refreshed design before a replacement arrives in 2022.
- Might even adopt special series name such as Superleggera or Valentino Balboni like the Gallardo before it.
Lamborghini has been spotted testing the Huracan in the broad daylight for the first time. After the Gallardo replacement made its name for itself after being on sale since 2014, the Italian marque has decided to bring in an updated version before its replacement arrives in a couple of years’ time. Or we could get to see a special series Huracan similar to the Gallardo.
According to reports, the hardware update on the Huracan will be the four-wheel steering which will be directly borrowed from the Aventador S. The V10 will surely get a bump in output while other features from the maniacal Aventador SVJ will also trickle down in the Baby Lambo. The 5.2-litre naturally aspirated motor could cross the 650bhp mark but nothing has been confirmed yet. There are also rumours of the Huracan getting a 48-Volt system which has been seen in other high-performance vehicles under the Volkswagen Group.
Styling wise, the test mule failed to hide the aggressive details on the fascia and on the posterior. There is intricate detailing on the front bumpers. The high-placed exhaust also makes way for a revised taillight design and a small spoiler as well. The diffuser area seems a bit busy with a lot of louvres adding to the drama. The prototype was sitting on huge multiple Y-spoke alloy wheels which have also been spotted for the first time.
The most important update on the Huracan will be on the inside with a massive screen taken straight out of the Lamborghini Centenario. It will also retain the display details as was seen on the Centenario. The current Huracan misses out on the touchscreen infotainment system, not that it needs one in the nicely sculpted interior. But given that every other car has a touchscreen system, Lamborghini might have felt the need to oblige the Huracan with the same.
The updated Huracan is expected to be revealed either late this year or sometime in 2019.
