Lamborghini Huracan Spyder Gets A Facelift
But, why? The current car doesn’t look old from any angleby Sidd Dhimaan, on
Have you ever heard of supercars getting mid-life facelifts? The Lamborghini Huracan is an exception. The car has been spied twice with heavy camouflage, clearly indicating that the Huracan is being refreshed for the market. The last update seen on the Huracan range was at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, when Lamborghini introduced the Spyder Performante, but now it looks like theHuracan Spyder is due for some changes inside and out. Get ready to witness the Huracan’s rebirth!
The Huracan Is Getting Too Common On The Roads
It is only logical to go for it. In July this year, Lamborghini celebrated the 11,000th Huracan, clearly showing how popular the car has been amongst the general populous. The update will include a pair of redesigned bumpers, perhaps making them more aerodynamically active. Lamborghini launched an aero active kit known as the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) in the Aventador SVJ.
So, there are high possibilities that the Huracan may get a toned down version of this kit in the Performante trim.
Another feature first seen in the Performante is the exhaust tailpipes, which exit from the middle of the rear end, leaving the lower part of the bumper free to be occupied by a massive diffuser.
Borrowing Elder Brother’s Features
As seen in one of the leaks, the Huracan is expected to get a huge 10.1-inch infotainment system.
It’s the same screen seen in the limited Centenario. The high-definition touchscreen basically controls everything in the car and has pretty much every connectivity option available.
Facelift Of a Supercar Is Not Complete Without An Engine Update!
We are not clear if there will be any changes under the hood.
Lamborghini has already confirmed that the Huracan’s successor will offer a hybrid powertrain; so, this is probably the last chance for Lamborghini to go with a powerful engine.
We’re talking about a 5.2-liter, naturally-aspirated V-10 engine! As this could be the last facelift before the successor takes over, the supercar could get faster before moving to an environment-friendly engine. If true, the power output could get a bump of 20-30 horses over the current Huracan’s 601 ponies.
While there are no concrete details yet, the supercar is expected to be launched next year as a 2020 model. Do you think Lamborghini is going for this facelift due to competition, or because the Huracan has been such a successful model? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
