For years, whenever someone at a party would ask me, "so what's your favorite car?" or "what's the coolest car you've driven?" I'd blurt out "the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera" faster and with more flourish than you could say "Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle." It's embarrasing, but I've been in love with the impractical wedge-shaped supercar ever since I got a chance to track one back in 2009. I know, it doesn't make sense, but supercars have a way of affecting men that rarely does.

But all good things must come to an end and Lamborghini has recently put the 10-year old Gallardo out to pasture. Its replacement has been unveiled today: the lighter, slicker, more powerful Lamborghini Huracán. Is it a worthy successor to my favorite car? We'll have to wait until its public debut next year to find out. Until then, we've got all of the newly confirmed details below.

It's called the Huracán
The Huracán is a Lamborghini, so naturally its name comes from the world of bullfighting, like the Murciéllago, Gallardo, and Aventador that came before it. According to Lamborghini, "the fighting bull Huracán of the Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed was known for his outstanding courage and strong sense of attack." Invariably, rappers and young men with Guh-lard-doh (shudders) posters over their beds will end up lazily calling the Who-rah-can the "Hurricane," which it translates to from Spanish.
