The Italian based automaker Lamborghini is planning to introduce the successor of the popular Gallardo under the Huracan name.
Initial rumors were saying that the successor of the Lamborghini Gallardo will be known as the Huracan but some official details on the model revealed that it will use a different name. Now, just weeks from finally meeting the replacement of the extremely popular Gallardo, we’re learning that the vehicle in question will actually be named the Huracan. The announcement hasn’t been made by the “raging bull” and it’s actually coming from Auto Express which is saying that the Huracan name was trademarked by Lamborghini last April and a source told them that this will be the Gallardo successor.
According to our source, the Huracan is the Mayan word for “god of fire, wind and storms” and it was adopted by the Spanish, as their word for hurricane. As you probably already know by now, the successor of the Lamborghini Gallardo is believed to receive a similar design to its larger brother, the Aventador, along with a whole new platform, which will be shared with the new Audi R8, and some modern technologies. The engine will be an updated 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10, which should generate 600 HP (447 kW). Power will be sent to the AWD or RWD, depending on the version chosen, through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
