We can't wait.
The Lamborghini Huracan has been around since 2014, and its looks have barely aged at all in that time. It's still a lovely design that is suitable for one-off artworks, but if you think it's ugly, you can strip the body and still have a brilliant machine. Whatever your feelings on the Italian exotic's looks, it's time for a successor to freshen things up. Lamborghini hasn't told us much about a Huracan replacement, besides to warn us not to expect a send-off model quite as extreme as the Aventador received with the Ultimae. Fortunately, it seems that somebody has inadvertently let slip that we'll know all about the new supercar come the end of March next year.
MotorTrend's Jonny Lieberman was a guest on the Spike's Car Radio podcast and spoke about the Huracan successor, saying that he would be visiting Italy in the next fortnight to drive the vehicle. He says that there will be a six-month embargo in effect, meaning that he won't be able to reveal any details whatsoever until April 2022. That implies a reveal sometime in or just after the end of the first quarter, when the Geneva Motor Show is traditionally held, although the show has been canceled, which suggests an online reveal rather than a showstopping in-person unveiling ceremony. But what can we expect the new baby Lambo to offer?
In all honesty, we have no idea. Lamborghini has kept mum on the Huracan replacement but has made comments suggesting that the V10 engine is not as important to the brand as the V12, obviously, so it's not a foregone conclusion that the ten-cylinder motor will survive. Last month, we reported that the mechanically similar Audi R8 may get a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 like that in the Lamborghini Urus SUV, but with hybrid assistance. Hybridization makes sense, as does parts-sharing, but we'll definitely miss that high-pitched wail if the turbo V8 rumor is true. Please, Sant'Agata, give us just one more ode to the shrieking symphony that is the V10.
