2017 Lamborghini Huracán Superleggera Spy Shots

Follow Viknesh

UPDATE: The mystery wide-body Lamborghini Huracán in blue is actually a car developed by German tuner Novitec. Lamborghini is still thought to be working on a Huracán Superleggera but it's a bit early for completed prototypes to be testing in public.

Lamborghini has just taken the wraps off a rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracán, but a new, more hardcore version of the car may be just around the corner. We previously posted spy shots of a Huracán test mule with an exhaust system similar to the one on the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo race car, and now a mysterious Huracán has been spotted in northern Italy.

Photos of the mysterious Huracán posted to the forum Huracan Talk reveal some unique attachments such as a fixed rear wing made from carbon fiber and a wide-body kit with vents behind the front wheels—elements also found on the Super Trofeo racer. Unfortunately, the car was quickly covered before more photos could be snapped.

One of our most cherished cars of the modern era is the Gallardo Superleggera, and it's possible this new car will be a successor to that model. The SuperVeloce name is reserved for Lamborghini’s most extreme cars, so we don’t expect to see an SV-badged Huracán. Instead, the Italian marque reviving the Superleggera name seems more likely.

Superleggera is Italian for “superlight”, so any new Superleggera version of the Huracán will have to feature some weight-saving mods such as a stripped-out cabin and increased use of carbon fiber. Tweaks to the suspension, steering and transmission are all possible as well.

Other upgrades may include a slight bump in power, perhaps with the final figure matching the 611 horsepower (620 hp in metric figures) of the Super Trofeo racer. The standard Huracán LP 610-4 comes with 601 hp, while the rear-wheel-drive Huracán LP 580-2 has 572 hp.

The latest photos look to have been taken while the car was on an official photo shoot, so we might not have to wait too long until an official debut. We’ll bring you an update as soon as more is known.
