Lamborghini has just introduced a rear-wheel-drive Huracán but a new, more hardcore version is just around the corner.

We have new spy shots of what's likely to be a Huracán Superleggera (earlier shots showed a test mule).

If you look closely, you'll notice the extra aero around the front bumper, the massive rear wing, and an exhaust system that's more like the one on the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo race car.

One of our most cherished cars of the modern era is the Gallardo Superleggera, and this Huracán Superleggera is the 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.

Look for the reveal to take place in the first half of 2017, possibly at next March's Geneva auto show.
