We just recently saw some spy photos of the upcoming 2018 Audi RS3 Sedan, which is exclusive for the US market. However, we’ve just seen some other spy photos of a car with a lot more power, and lot more performance and will be available for all markets…to whoever can afford it — the Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera.
Superleggera roughly translates from Italian to “Super Light” and denotes a crazed, stripped out, lightweight variant of a Lamborghini model. The Huracan seems to be the latest model to receive the Superleggera nameplate, following its Gallardo predecessor. Some spy shots have recently emerged of what seems to be the Huracan Superleggera running around the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife race track, in Germany. We don’t own these spy shots, but you can find them here.
In years past, a Superleggera Lamborghini was stripped out, had much more aggressive body work, a bit extra power and extreme aerodynamics, all in the name of going much faster. This new Huracan seems to be exactly that. Whereas the standard Huracan has been criticized for being a bit timid, this Huracan looks flat out bonkers. Its front chin spoiler is far more aggressive and features much larger air intakes. The rear wheel wells seem to be a bit wider, as do the aerodynamics down the side of the car. There’s also a massive wing spoiler at the back and the exhaust pipes have moved up to just beneath the taillights. No interior shots have been seen but if this is indeed a Superleggera model, expect a lot of alcantara replacing most of the leather, lightweight carbon fiber-backed seats and much less sound deadening.
Whether or not this is a Huracan Superleggera, it certainly seems to be a much more exciting variant of the Huracan, something the car desperately needs. Lamborghinis have always been the more flamboyant and exciting supercar, in contrast to the very serious supercars from Ferrari and McLaren. However, the Huracan seemed to be a bit too safe, a bit too reserved when it first debuted. This new variant could be the shot in the arm that the Huracan needed to get its Raging Bull blood back.
