Huracán Blows out, Temerario Charges in at Lamborghini

Nik Berg

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 V-10 be offered, with a hybridized V-8 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-liter V-8 that powers Lamborghini’s SC63 Le Mans Hypercar.

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

    Every time the phrase “a new Lamborghini sports car is coming” is spoken, my hope for humanity brightens.

    The most disappointing part about Lamborghini’s new supercar after the Huracan is that they won’t be bringing back the V10
    Like why not? You’re going out of your way to keep the V12 even making it a hybrid why not keep the V10?
    That’s what made the Gallardo and Huracan special in the first place and why those cars have legendary status even as a modern Lamborghini I don’t think the successor to those cars will live up to the hype like yeah sure twin turbo V8 hybrid but come on now
