2017 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera Spied, Shows New GT3-Inspired Exhaust Tips

Business over in Sant'Agata Bolognese is effervescent these days. However, while Lamborghini is venturing into fresh territories by developing the Urus SUV or coming up with alternative propulsion concepts such as the Asterion, it can't overlook its now-traditional goodies such as the Huracan special editions.

Our spy photogs have once again come across what we expect to be the Huracan Superleggera prototype. As it happened before, we can see the rear fascia housing new exhaust tips. Inspired by the layout of the Huracan GT3 racecar, the dual, generously-sized tips sit centrally, above the area where the (still-present) standard quad tips are found.

So far, Lamborghini has tweaked the 2015 Huracan's all-wheel-drive to address the understeer for the 2016 model, and offered us the LP580-2 rear-wheel-drive coupe, as well as the LP610-4 Huracan Spyder. While these models offer an enjoyable selection of Raging Bull V10 aromas, it's time for the Italians to step up their game with an even faster version.

Ferrari has already unleashed the twin-turbo 488 GTB, while McLaren has given us the 675LT and this is where Lambo's Superleggera will step in. Expect a diet of over 200 lbs (100 kg), as well as a power bump and go-fast moves such as quicker shifts performed by the dual-clutch transmission.

Styling-wise, you should be able to spot the Huracan Superleggera (the name hasn't been officially confirmed yet) thanks to a more aggressive aerodynamic armor, with the changes expected to be led by a fixed rear wing that will steal the tuning industry's business.

If Lamborghini follows its usual plan, we should see the Huracan Superleggera debuting later this year as a 2017 model, with this fall's Paris Motor Show being a likely candidate for the supercar's debut.

As for the open-top model seen in the spy photos, let's not forget that the Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante needs a successor.
