The Lamborghini Huracánis a sports car built by Lamborghini, replacing Lamborghini’s sales leader and most produced car, the Gallardo. The Huracán’s name (huracán being the Spanish word for hurricane) is inspired by a Spanish fighting bull, similar to various other Lamborghini car models. On the other side Superleggera is Italian for “superlight”, so any new Superleggera version of the Huracán will have to feature some weight-saving modes such as a stripped-out cabin and increased use of carbon fiber. Tweaks to the suspension, steering and transmission are all possible as well, but more on that is in the following text.
As we previously mentioned Superleggera is Italian for “Superlight” which announces a lightweight version of Lamborghini’s Huracán supercar. According to the info online this one has some similarities with Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo race car, especially in the aero department around the aggressive front bumper, the massive rear wing, and new exhaust system with large tips on the back (it have moved from the outer edges of the rear bumper to a more centered location), which scream heavy track focused car. Since this is supposed to be a replacement for the famous Gallardo Superleggera it will have some big shoes to fill. So expect some improvements such as significant weight loss, by stripping the car of everything non essential on the racetrack and increasing the usage of carbon fiber elements, probably made by Lamborghini.
It also should get upgraded wheels and tires and brake components to complement a stiffer suspension tune. What it won’t have is the standard Huracán LP610-4’s AWD system, but the simpler and slightly lighter RWD LP580-2, introduced last year, will surely be the basis for the new Huracán Superleggera.
Sadly there isn’t much info about the look inside of this magnificent super car since it is still in its testing stage. What is quite OK to assume is that the interior of the 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera will be similar to the regular Huracán, jet inspired functionality and Audi donated quality. One major difference is that it will be stripped bare of non essential pieces to save as much weight as possible. High usage of carbon fiber elements inside is also normal to expect. The lack of central screen will probably remain, and all functions will be dealt with on the main display behind the steering wheel, as it is in the Huracán. This will add more to its significance because this time you will really have to keep your eyes glued to the road, and not roam around the car looking for this or that button, or command. Sporty interior with bucket seats is going without mentioning, and this time they will be more track focused, meaning stiffer but providing more snug in the corners.
The 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera will most likely receive performance upgrades. The standard LP 610-4 version comes with a 601 HP V10 engine, so this new Superleggera model could be powered by a more powerful 5.2L V10 engine that can be found in the LP 620-2 Super Trofeo supercar, another thing that these two have in common. That unit delivers up to 620 HP and 413 lb-ft of torque. With the weight savings (probably around 70-80 kg) this monster will have unseen acceleration and speed, just the thing to justify the Superleggera badge and the new engine. Also, expect the return of a 7 speed dual-clutch transmission, as the only choice, which will propel this monster power to its rear wheels.
2018 Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera release date and price
According to online information and rumors, the 2018 Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera will probably arrive sometime in late 2017 as an 2018 model, and will have a hefty price tag. We can for sure expect a significant bump in price over the standard Huracán LP610-4 (starting price $243.000). We presume around $300,000 is a most likely price tag, which would fill the free price territory between the Huracán and the $400,000 + Aventador.
