Lamborghini trademarks the Huracan Performante, might just be the Superleggera Spyder

Article by Christian A., on October 24, 2016

Many had wished that a Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera would somehow make a surprise debut at the recently held Paris Motor Show. Sadly, not a single Lamborghini appeared anywhere in sight. Much to everyone’s dismay, we are still hoping to see one in the next several months or probably at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. While waiting for this to happen, allow us to share what we just found out.

Though there are no official announcements (yet) regarding the launching of a Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera, we are quite positive that things are likely heading this way. The spy pictures are literally everywhere. Only recently, the Italian automaker has also filed for a trademark in Europe and is probably for the new Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Although the trademark description has not been disclosed, the filing was placed under paper goods, toys, clothing, electronics and vehicles.

What we have at the moment are pictures of the Gallardo Spyder Performante, which we think will look brilliant if Lamborghini will come up with a possible combination of Spyder and Superleggera for the same. If the recently trademarked vehicle will follow Gallardo’s footprint, it would definitely be an awesome combination, don’t you think?

From what we know, the previous version of the droptop vehicle used more aluminium and carbon fibre, cutting down its weight by as much as 65kg. Likewise, the enhanced 419kW V10 engine is undeniably more powerful than its 412kW stock engine. As speculations arise, we can only expect Lamborghini to bring a much better version of the Huracán Performante.

An early revelation also suggests some of Aventador’s styling cues particularly at the Superleggera’s front end. Aside from its new side air intakes, the rear may as well come with massive wing, highly advanced diffuser and GT3-styled exhausts. According to rumours, the Superlegerra will be equipped with 485kW V10 engine and may be shedding off at least 100kg (considering the standard model’s 1,422kg dry weight).

That means, Lamborghini will once again use a lot of carbon fibre aluminium and even cut down more portions at the interior to achieve this. After all, Superlegerra means, “super light”. In other words, this kind of weight, power and aerodynamic combination will make the Superlegerra fly off from 0-100kph in just three seconds.

The Huracán Superleggera coupe will likely hold its premiere a few months from now. But with the new Huracán Performante surfacing on the web, it’s so much easier to understand why Lamborghini takes its own sweet time before allowing a roadster version take over the spotlight.
