Huracán Blows out, Temerario Charges in at Lamborghini

The replacement for the Lamborghini Huracán has a name. A new trademark filing at the European Intellectual Property Office unearthed by CarBuzz reveals that the next model to be launched by Lamborghini will be called Temerario.

A logo, incorporating a pair of subtle horns framing the name, has also been submitted for a trademark to cover “Cars, including electric and combustion vehicles and their components.”

As the only all-new model in the Lambo pipeline is the replacement for the Huracán, it’s a safe bet to assume that the Temerario name will be applied to the Revuelto’s smaller sibling.

Temerario translates from Spanish into English as “reckless”, and could mark a break from tradition in a couple of key areas. First, it might be the first Lamborghini in a long time, not named after a fighting bull. The practice dates back to the Miura, with the Urraco, Jalpa, Murciélago, Gallardo, Aventador, Huracán and Revuelto all receiving feisty bovine branding.

It wouldn’t be completely out of place to name a Lamborghini from outside this arena, of course, with cars such as the Espada and Diablo getting their monikers from spicy Spanish words, while the Countach famously got its name from Piedmontese expression of surprise.

The second major departure for the Temerario will be its powertrain. No longer will a V10 be offered, with a hybridised V8 sitting ahead of the rear wheels. Lamborghini is about to reveal a plug-in hybrid edition of the Urus SUV, so that engine could also make its way to the two-seater. Another, and more exciting, option could be a road-going version of the 3.8-litre V8 that powers Lamborghini’s SC63 Le Mans Hypercar.

We’re expecting more information later this month, so stay tuned.
