Default Lamborghini’s new V12 supercar – the 2011 Murcielago successor



Quote:
Not the most subtle prototype to be testing in the winter snows of Sweden, we think you’ll agree. The new Lamborghini Murcielago replacement made quite a stir when it appeared for some winter testing.

This is our clearest view yet of the new Lambo V12, which is due to go public in spring 2011.

It’ll be roughly the same size as today’s Murcielago and keep the flamboyant wardrobe intact. Although all-new, familiar motifs such as scissor doors are a must.

Sant’Agata’s new range-topper will be made largely from carbonfibre this time, bringing a handy drop in kerbweight. The Murcielago has always been remarkably nimble for such a big car, but a composite diet and carbon tub can only help improve the supercar’s poise.

Power will come from a V12 of around 6.0 litres in capacity. Judging by the current car’s 670ps output, power could spiral ever closer to the magic 700bhp total. Hold on tight!

The new name for Lamborghini’s supercar is still shrouded in mystery. Jota has been suggested, but is likely the fruits of an early speculative guess. How many bull badges can there be out there?

there is some ribbing there, but that could just be the camo.

I remember the first time I saw a Murcielago in the flesh. It made a Gallardo seem plebeian.

Looks low. And it's funny that they winter test it. Something Kia and Hyundai have probably never done.

^ umm... Why is it funny that it's winter tested? I would also take a new Hyundai over many other cars on the road today. Not too bright there huh?

Because the chances of one being purchased and driven in the snow is near 0.
