Spied! Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera Tests at the ‘Ring

Huracan lineup follows in the Gallardo's footsteps

Late last year, Lamborghini confirmed that it would add more models to the Huracan lineup, which has the potential to become bigger than the Gallardo's lineup. Now, we've caught the Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera testing in full camouflage at the Nrburgring.

Lamborghini hasn't confirmed that it will use the Superleggera name for the newest addition to the Huracan lineup, but if the naming scheme is in keeping with the Gallardo lineup, we expect the new variant to wear that moniker.

Lamborghini has given the Superleggera major updates over the standard Huracan, including a big fixed rear wing and more aggressive front spoiler, both of which help with the aerodynamics and downforce for the new model. We even get a glimpse of the exhaust pipes mounted in a higher position just below the taillights.

In addition to the new design elements and aero bits, the new Huracan model is expected to get a power bump, with total power from massaged 5.2-liter V-10 close to the 650-hp mark. The boost in output combined with significant weight savings should make for an even quicker baby-bull. The first production Huracan Superleggera will be a coupe, while a Spyder version will follow, and may get the Performante title, if it follows what Lamborghini did with the Gallardo model.

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte.

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent

You don’t find many older Hondas in the sort of condition that this 1985 Civic 1500S was found in and, if you do, and you’re immediately hit with throwback vibes and rich memories of piloting the same sort of chassis during “spirited driving encounters” on the streets 30-or-so years prior, then you don’t let it

That a Suzuki Samurai is being featured by Super Street shouldn’t come as a complete shock to some of our long-time fans who know we love capturing something unique. Sure, it’s not a common occurrence and in fact, I can’t recall ever having featured one in the past, but this example, owned and built by
