We have gone back and forth between "Huracan" and "Cabrera" as the name of the upcoming successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo, and Cabrera was pretty much the most accepted name. Well, we heard different from a few TopSpeed faithful and we even reported that it will not be named "Cabrera."

Now, according to Auto Express, Lamborghini has decided to name its new supercar the Huracan, the very same name it trademarked back in April 2012.

Initially, this name fueled speculation that it would be used for the production version of the Urus SUV Concept. Instead, Lamborghini apparently called an audible, choosing "Huracan" as the name of the successor to the Gallardo, an appropriate enough name, considering the word is Mayan for "God of fire, wind and storms" and later adopted by the Spanish to mean "hurricane".

With Huracan already accounted for, it’s beginning to look more and more likely that the production version of the Urus SUV Concept will be called Deimos, the other name Lamborghini registered around the same time as Huracan.

Nothing has been made official on the name, as the report is from an unnamed "source" and Lamborghini has been known to make quick modifications to its choice of names for its models.

That being said, it’s looking more and more like the supercar we’re waiting to be revealed later this month is actually the Lamborghini Huracan LP 600-4.

Now that the mystery surrounding its name has reportedly been solved, we can now look forward to seeing the Lamborghini Huracan LP 600-4 when it makes its world debut before the year ends.

The model is tipped to be a worthy successor to the Gallardo and will come with a lightweight, carbon-fiber monocoque — the same one used on the Aventador. The lighter configuration for the Huracan doesn’t come by accident; it was intentionally done to accommodate the V-10 engine the supercar is going to have under its hood.

With the task of taking on Ferrari’s 458 Italia, the Lamborghini Huracan and its power-packed 600 horses (not to mention the 0-to-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds and the 203 mph top speed) is poised to become a resounding answer to the Prancing Horse’s resident supercar.
