Lamborghini Supposedly Has A Name For Its Next Supercar

Supercar

What's 'bonkers' in Italian?

Before you get too excited here, there’s something that needs to be clarified first: Lamborghini’s likely next model won’t be entirely new. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t be completely nuts, which is exactly how Lamborghinis ought to be. According to AutoGuide, Lamborghini has applied to trademark the name Huracan Performante, a name that could very well turn out to be given to the convertible version of the also upcoming Huracan Superleggera, a prototype of which we recently caught testing.

Now, it’s also entirely possible Lamborghini won’t go with Huracan Performante at all. If you recall, Performante was also the name given to the convertible version of the Gallardo Superleggera, so going with something different and unique is certainly a possibility, too. But if Lamborghini doesn’t intend to go with Huracan Performante, why bother trademarking it? Because automakers often secure the rights to various names they don’t end up using in order to prevent competitors from taking them, thus potentially creating confusion. In all likelihood, however, we predict a droptop bearing the name Huracan Performante will be in our near future.
