Lamborghini hasn’t even come out with the new Huracan Superleggera coupe yet, and already rumors are circulating about the followup roadster version.
The speculation stems from a trademark application that AutoGuide came across for the name Huracan Performante, which will speak volumes (or at least one very specific volume) to those well-schooled in the Bolognese automaker’s nomenclature and model history.
Towards the end of the lifecycle of the Huracan’s predecessor, Lamborghini rolled out the Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante. It was essentially the convertible version of the Gallardo Superleggera, packing a more powerful engine, a more aggressive setup, and less weight than the standard Gallardo Spyder, of which it was arguably (if not empirically) the pinnacle version.
Now it would appear that the House of the Raging Bull is preparing to apply a similar treatment to the Huracan, bringing the less weight/more power formula to the company’s drop-top, ten-cylinder model much in the same way it did with the Aventador SV Roadster.
Expect Lamborghini to release the Huracan Spyder Performante within the year after the Superleggera coupe, which we hope will arrive shortly.
