Gallardo Successor is Called the Huracan?

Rumor / 106 Comments

The Gallardo's replacement will be unveiled before the end of the year.

After months of calling the Lamborghini Gallardo's imminent replacement the Cabrera (and on occasion the Deimos) Auto Express has thrown us one out of left field by claiming the name will in fact be Huracan. According to the British publication, Lamborghini trademarked the name back in April 2012; the same time it trademarked the name Urus, which the carmaker used for its SUV concept unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show.

The name Deimos has also been registered, but has yet to appear on a car or concept. It could well end up being used for the production version of the SUV. Huracan originates from Mayan, and is the name for the god of fire, wind and storms. The Spanish later adopted it to mean hurricane. The Lamborghini Huracan will be powered by an updated version of the Gallardo's 5.2-liter V10 with around 600 horsepower sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It will be built on an all-new aluminum spaceframe platform that will also serve as the basis of the next Audi R8.
