Lamborghini isn't ready to follow McLaren and Ferrari into plug-in hybrids yet, but it's keeping the Huracan fresh to take them on.

The baby Lamborghini range is about to expand.

Leaked images posted on social media reveal what looks like a more aggressive Huracan to sit above the EVO, but below the race-inspired STO, is in the works.

Reportedly called the Huracan Tecnica, the supercar leaked on wilcoblok will reportedly be revealed on April 12 in Europe.

It wears a new nose inspired by the Sian, and according to krn_speed will feature rear-drive and a subtle rear spoiler. It’s not clear what will power the car, but it’s likely it will be a development of the naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine from the Huracan EVO and STO.

In the STO it pumps out 470kW and 565Nm, good for a three-second sprint to 100km/h.

Along with the Tecnica, the Huracan range is expected to gain a high-riding Sterrato variant.

Based on spy photos, it’s clear the suspension has been raised (the concept was 47mm taller than stock), and it looks like the test car here rides on different wheels to the regular Huracan EVO.

The LED light bar fitted to this car might not be production-ready, but it’s possible a production Sterrato will feature some form of rally lighting given the concept was festooned with plenty of extra ways to turn night into day.

The roof of this mule is home to an extra scoop feeding engine to the 5.2-litre V10 engine, and there are extra skid plates up front to protect the car’s angular snout.

It’s not clear what changes Lamborghini will make to the all-wheel drive V10 powertrain in the Huracan, if any.

It’s possible the car will feature a retuned all-wheel drive system to work better on gravel and snow like the concept, although how many people will take their mid-engined Italian thoroughbred off the blacktop isn’t clear.
