The lighter Lambo won't be all show and no go, either.
The Lamborghini Gallardo was a car that was almost defined by the number of variants and special editions it produced (35 in total, according to Auto Express), so it's no surprise that its Huracan successor is treading a similar path. We've already had a RWD version, a drop-top Spyder, an edition inspired by the Italian air force...heck, even the current coupe is subtly different to the original 2014 cars! Unsurprisingly, then, there's going to be a 'Superleggera' version - which we've just snapped our first proper spy shots of.
Spotted pounding its way around the obligatory supercar testing ground that is the Nurburgring Nordschleife, the sportier Huracan certainly looks the part. Even with the camo cladding, the Huracan Superleggera is clearly shown to provide a far more aggressive look - which is quite a feat, considering the regular Huracan already has some of the most pointy and prominent proportions in the supercar marketplace. We'll let you decide for yourself on how well you think the extra bodywork additions are implemented, but we really love how menacing the Huracan Superleggera looks with its large rear wing, bigger air intakes in front of the rear fenders, the raised positioning of the tailpipes and the extra appendages on the front bumper.
The new Lamborghini won't just have an ace bodykit on its side, though. Word on the street is that Lamborghini's upped the power of the 5.2-liter V10 engine by another 50-hp over the regular version, meaning the total output should be somewhere in the 650-hp ballpark (with all that extra grunt being backed up by what our spy snappers refer to as "sweet music to our petrol head ears"). It's also being suggested that a "massive" amount of weight will be stripped out of the car in order to finalise the Huracan's transformation into a Superleggera. We probably won't see the Huracan Superleggera until next year's Geneva Motor Show at the earliest, but we're certain the wait will be oh so worth it.
