Lamborghini Gallardo Successor will be Called Huracan

The Gallardo successor will not be called Cabrera but will instead be called Huracan, according to AutoExpress magazine, citing an unnamed source.
Huracan, which means hurricane in Spanish, allegedly has been deemed more appropriate for the V10-powered supercar than Cabrera.
Lamborghini never admitted that the replacement to the Gallardo will be called Cabrera – or Huracan, for that matter though, but they did trademark that name on April 12, 2012, along with Urus.
The Gallardo replacement is likely to be powered by a reworked version of the 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10 that could develop as much as 600 horsepower. Mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission or possibly an available six-speed manual, the supercar will be offered with either rear- or all-wheel-drive setups. The new Lamborghini will be built on a new aluminum spaceframe platform, shared with the second-generation Audi R8.
