Lamborghini Huracan To Replace The Gallardo

Lamborghini Sesto Elemnto Concept

It was thought that the highly anticipated Lamborghini Gallardo replacement will adopt the name Cabrera, but a new report suggests that the car will be called the Huracan.

Auto Express has reported that the new Lamborghini will adopt the name Huracan, taken from the Spanish word hurricane and is also Mayan for the “god of fire, wind and storms”. Has there every been a case where a Lamborghini has been called something soft and gentle? Not on your life.

Lamborghini is said to have trademarked the name in April 2012. Supposedly under the hood of the supercar will be a 5.0-litre V10 engine tuned to produce approximately 447 kW and will likely be connected to a seven speed dual-clutch transmission which could will enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in about 3.2 seconds.

The magazine goes on to say that the Lamborghini Huracan will be built on a new aluminium spaceframe and its design will be inspired by the Sesto Elemento (pictured above) which was shown off in 2010, and the current Aventador.

Details are still vague at the moment, but are expected to surface when the Lamborghini Huracan is unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year.
