Could ‘Temerario’ Be The Name Of The Lamborghini Huracan Successor?

A recent trademark filing by Lamborghini hints at the name of the long-awaited successor to its baby supercar

Details about the successor the Lamborghini Huracan have been steadily trickling out for a while now. It’s widely thought that the new car will ditch the outgoing Huracan’s naturally aspirated V10 engine for a twin-turbocharged V8 plug-in hybrid setup, and camouflaged prototypes that have been spotted testing reveal that it looks set to visually lean heavily into the hexagon motif that Lambo has been so fond of in recent years.

Last month, Lamborghini’s CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, revealed to Road & Track that it had a name picked out for the new car, but didn’t reveal what it was. Now, however, if a trademark filing uncovered by CarBuzz is anything to go by, that name might have slipped out anyway: Temerario.

The trademark was filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, along with a logo in a very Lambo-ish font with a pair of stylised bull horns at either end. It was registered under several categories, but most notably, for use on cars.

Given we’re not aware of any other new cars in the works from Lamborghini besides the high-riding Lanzador, which is still several years off and already has a name, it seems highly likely that Temerario is the name of the new mid-engined supercar.

As is traditional for Lamborghini, Temerario is the name of a Spanish fighting bull. In fact, somewhat surprisingly given how controversial the sport has become in recent years, it’s the name of a bull that seems to have been fighting as recently as last year. It’s also the Spanish word for ‘reckless’, which hints at the personality Lambo is going for with the new car.

A full reveal is expected within the next few months, where we’ll get confirmation of the name as well as plenty of other information. The Huracan, meanwhile, is set to end production in summer, and with it, V10 engines will disappear from road cars for the time being. It’s been in production since 2014 and is one of the best-selling Lamborghinis of all time, with almost 4000 sold in 2023 alone.
