Lamborghini Teases A New Huracan-Based Model, Debuts Next Week

Lamborghini has announced plans to introduce a new V10-powered model next week.

The company is keeping details under wraps, but teased the car is “based on a true story” and “from racetrack to road.”

That isn’t much to go on, but the model will be based on the Huracan and apparently inspired by motorsport. The teaser image doesn’t reveal much, but it suggests the car will have a ventilated hood like the Huracan GT3 Evo racer. We can also see what appears to be a prominent rear wing.

There’s no word on what this particular model is, but Lamborghini has been rolling out additional Huracan variants following the launch of the updated Evo in 2019. In particular, the company introduced the rear-wheel drive Huracan Evo Coupe and Spyder earlier this year.

While the model remains a mystery, pictures of a rumored Huracan Evo STO surfaced back in March. It’s believed to be a track-focused limited edition which priorities weight savings over power gains.

Regardless of what Lamborghini has planned, we’ll find out on November 18th at 10:00 AM EST (4 PM CET). In the meantime, we’ll remind you the standard Huracan Evo has a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 631 hp (470 kW / 640 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission which sends power to an all-wheel drive system. This setup enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed in excess of 202 mph (325 km/h).
