Planning for the Future: Lamborghini Trademarks 'Huracan' Name

Lamborghini’s possible next model name has been leaked.

Apparently Lamborghini doesn't mind if the world knows the names of all their 'yet-to-be-released' models. According to a report by Car&Driver, Lamborghini has trademarked the moniker 'Huracan' for their next vehicle. Well, eventual vehicle at least, as the Italian supercar and now super-SUV builder has already trademarked the name Deimos which has yet to be assigned to a vehicle. The latest name in Lamborghini's lineup of bad-ass names, Huracan, is Spanish for 'Hurricane.'

It could also allude to ancient Mayan mythology where Huracan was the god of fire, wind and storms. Deimos, being the Greek god of terror and dread, shows Lambo's desire for added aggressiveness in their new models. As you may recall from the recent Beijing Motor Show, the Urus (extinct European Ox) moniker is slated to be the production name of the Italian's super-SUV. Photos displayed are of the 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale. Huracan or Deimos, these could be the names of Lamborghini's Gallardo replacement. So CarBuzz fans, which do you prefer?
