Lamborghini had launched the Huracan Avio edition in the previous year and now it’s going to bring an even more powerful, lightweight and sinister looking version of the Huracan in the form of the Superleggera. The Supercar with the legendary tag is likely to make its public debut at the 2017 Geneva motor show and will be available in a coupe form as well as a drop top version.
Both the convertible and coupe have been spotted facing testing conditions in northern Sweden and have also been spotted testing at the Nurburgring. The Huracan was spotted with Becker carbon stickers and is expected to be lighter than the previous models by almost 100 kg which would provide a significant jump in the performance. Information is that ultra-light body panels will be used whereas several metal parts will be replaced by carbon fibre.
Becker Carbon whose stickers have been found stuck on the Huracan mule has experience of supplying materials to the F1 and Le mans teams as well which could help the new Huracan to tip the scales at a little more than 1300 kg in comparison to the 1422 kg of kerb weight of regular one. The body work also focuses on reducing down force and the new car shows a larger spoiler, different air intakes and larger twin exhaust system which has been placed a little higher in comparison to the regular Huracan and more like the Huracan GT3 Racer.
The Huracan Superleggera is expected to enter the showrooms sometime in 2018 and looks clearly enticing for buyers who spend a lot of time on race tracks. It will be competing against other track-oriented Supercars like the Porsche GT3 RS and Audi R8 V10 Plus.
