But it will be getting updates to see it through.
Just yesterday, we came across a rumor that stated we'd be seeing a successor to the Lamborghini Huracan early next year. This was a surprise for many reasons. For one, the Huracan replacement hasn't been caught testing anywhere. For another, we're expecting at least some sort of special-edition send-off for the baby Lambo. In addition, Lamborghini has a habit of revealing new vehicles long before development is completed and production can begin.
But new information disproves this rumor, which tells us two things. For a start, the Huracan will continue to exist until the end of next year at least, and secondly, the Huracan will definitely be getting at least one more iteration before going to the scrapyard in the sky. What is this new information, then, and how does it prove everything we've just said? Allow us to explain.
Lamborghini has just announced that Huracan models produced from mid-2022 will gain a new what3words navigation system. Unlike a traditional GPS-based navigation system, what3words splits the planet into one large group of 57 trillion squares, with each square representing an area of 10 feet. Three words are assigned to each square, making finding your destination through the system sort of like navigating a maze with transparent walls. The news came via Lamborghini's head of connectivity, Luca Giardino, who announced the tech upgrade in a statement:
"The future of mobility demands the most advanced technology, and that is why today Lamborghini is announcing the rollout of what3words. Our drivers can experience the most seamless way to navigate by voice."
"Traditional addresses aren't suitable for voice input, and a lot of the time, the best spots don't have an address at all," adds what3words CEO Chris Sheldrick. "Together, what3words and Alexa offer the perfect solution for navigation, and with that a top-of-the-range experience. Lamborghini drivers can now explore off the beaten track, or find a VIP entrance to an exclusive venue with just 3 words."
The announcement of a tech upgrade coming in the middle of next year confirms that the Huracan will still be around come the end of 2022, thus meaning that our earlier story is not about the Huracan replacement. Instead, the car being talked about there must be some other vehicle. It could be that a special-edition send-off is already being developed, or it could be that another, completely new Lambo is on the way. Whatever the truth turns out to be, the V10 engine will remain with us in an unassisted manner for a little longer at least, and that's something we have no problems with.
