The Next Lamborghini Will Be Called Temerario

Our internet sleuths, as well as those at CarBuzz, have uncovered trademark filings suggesting Lamborghini has chosen a name for the Huracan’s successor: Temerario. Seeing as the V10 entry-point to the Lamborghini sports car lineup isn’t long for this world, it makes quite a lot of sense. Alternatively, we think that whatever that car will be called, Lamborghini has held the trademark far longer. You don’t just trademark the name of your next-generation supercar a handful of months before its alleged debut. These filings were made in early February this year, though earlier versions may exist. Point being, someone could well have snatched the Spanish name, which translates to “reckless,” much sooner, leaving what are likely years of planning a total mess.

Our counter-point is that the Temerario won’t be seen for some time, simply because Lamborghini would have more foresight than to trademark the Huracan successor’s name so late in the game. However, Lamborghini did trademark the name for the Revuelto just a year before its debut, as CarBuzz points out. Regardless, one thing is largely confirmed by Lamborghini’s filings with the EUIPO- the Temerario will be a car. Filings also show that the name will be applied to other categories like electronic sensors and equipment, watches, clothing, and toy cars. Likely, this is a mix of Lambo covering its legal bases and securing rights for naming merchandise surrounding this upcoming model.

As for just what this upcoming model will be, we’d bet that it will be a special one-off, more akin to the Lamborghini Centenario than a mass-production model. It’s been a hot minute since Lamborghini has done anything like this, and it feels like about time, especially since the Huracan’s successor will be shown soon. Whether it’s called Temerario, however, remains to be seen.
