Snapshot: Lamborghini Gallardo successor to be named the Huracan

Auto Express UK reports that the successor to the iconic Lamborghini Gallardo will be named as the Huracan. Lambo patented this name back in April 2012 along with the Urus for its SUV. 

Now, people familiar with Lambo's history will know that the company has named cars after various names of famous Bulls. It seems befitting then that the company continues its legacy, however this may not be so. In Mayan culture, Huracan translates to God of fire, wind and storm, while the Spanish associate the name to hurricane. And with the kind of mind boggling performance numbers this car will conjure up, we don't expect anything less.

Coming to the specs, the Huracan is predicted to be based on an all-new platform having high usage of carbon fibre and aluminium. Expect a kerb weight of under 1500 kg and power close to 600 horses from the same albeit tuned 5.2-litre V10 engine. Transmission options may include a standard 6-speed manual and a 7-speed double-clutch automatic (automated transmission will be replaced with an Audi unit).

The company has begun teasing the car through a site called as hexagonproject which gives us a hint as to how the car will sound like. For more information, keep a loot out for this space!
