Lamborghini Patents Huracan Perfomante Name — Is This The Lightweight Huracan?

Written By:

Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini has filed a patent for the name of one of its upcoming models.

According to Autocar UK, the name applied for in the patent is 'Lamborghini Huracan Performante' which suggests a new faster Huracan is on the way.

Lamborghini has been testing out a new version of the Huracan on the Nurburgring for a few months now, and the design suggests a very crazy aero setup.

The Performante could very well be the lightweight Huracan that everyone has been expecting in the form of a Huracan Superleggera, considering the fact that the Gallardo's faster lightweight version bore the Superleggera name.

With regards to design, the front end of the Performante features a very aggressive front bumper with bigger intakes and what seems to be a lower splitter.

At the rear, the Performante mules on the Nurburgring sport a fixed rear wing along with louder twin exhausts that look like the ones from the Huracan GT3 car.

Performance wise, the new Performante is expected to get a slight bump above the regular Huracan's 602bhp and 560Nm of torque.

The bump in power is also expected to lower the time taken for the sprint to 100km/h and increase the top speed, though the latter may not happen due to that large rear wing.

The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is expected to debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in all its track focused glory.
