Facelifted Lamborghini Huracan Shows Performante-Inspired Styling Cues

We already know that Lamborghini is working on the mid-life update of the Huracan, thanks to a recent leak of images showing a test car during the night, but our spies have now spotted another car in broad daylight.

The update will include a pair of redesigned bumpers that appear to host a bit of active aero to them, or as Lamborghini calls it ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva). If true, then expect a toned-down version of the aero kit that debuted in the hardcore Huracan Performante and is prominently featured in the Aventador SVJ.

Another feature first seen in the Performante is the exhaust tailpipes, which exit from the middle of the rear end, leaving the lower part of the bumper free to be occupied by a massive diffuser.

The interior will be updated with a massive portrait-style infotainment system, as seen on the previous leak. The system appears to be the same with that in the limited Centenario, meaning a 10.1-inch touchscreen high-definition display with pretty much every connectivity option available.

We still don’t know what Lamborghini is planning to do with the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine. Given that Lamborghini has already confirmed that the successor to the Huracan will employ a hybrid powertrain, we expect them to upgrade the V10’s performance as a proper sendoff. With the current Huracan making 601hp, the facelift should bring the output closer to the Performante’s 631hp.

The facelifted Lamborghini Huracan is expected to debut next year as a 2020 model, so tune in for more information as we have them.

    are you sure it’s a new car?
    all Lambos looks just the same since they are part of VAG.
    not that stupid Audi Q7 with the lambo logo on it

  • Thundersnow 463

    Yeah but it’d be heavy. V12 plus electric motors oof

  • Elmediterraneo

    I think they’ll follow the same logic as with the Aventador :
    – Huracan S 630 hp (10 hp less than the Performante)
    – Huracan S Performante 670 hp
    I can’t wait to see the next Aventador’s replacement with a 800 hp V12 and 400 hp electric power from 3 engines for 1200 hp combined. By the way Lamborghini also needs a 4 door coupe based on the Porsche Panamera with the engine, interior and style from the Urus.
