Lamborghini Huracan was officially released for the first time back in 2014. Since then, there has been many rumors and speculations about Superleggera version. We saw some spy shots taken at the Nurburgring, which definitely means that new 2018 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera release date is getting close. Upcoming Huracan should be more powerful and much lighter than regular version. Also, it will get more aerodynamic and more aggressive design.
Production of Lambo Huracan is mostly done with carbon fiber, which makes it very light and stiff. Superleggera version will be even lighter, thanks to new carbon fiber suspension and lightweight forged wheels. Performance should be improved with adding carbon ceramic brakes, along with high-performance tires. We already said that 2018 Huracan Superleggera will be lighter than regular version, which weighs 3,100 pounds. We expect to see decrease of almost 300 pounds. This weight saving will definitely impact interior design. It will lose some standard features and equipment in favor of weight reduction. For example, 2018 Superleggera will lose seat electric motors, subwoofers and even head unit. But on the other hand, it will get lightweight carbon fiber seats. Exterior design details will include big fixed wing at the back, as well as dual center sport exhaust and big diffuser. Up front it has air intakes similar to Gallardo Superleggera.
