Lamborghini Cabrera spotted, readying itself to replace Gallardo
Facebook user and minor YouTube celebrity, Marchettino was the lucky one who spotted the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo running out and about on public streets and was kind enough to click a few pictures of the menacing machine. It is rumoured that Lamborghini is all set to show a concept car at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show this September, which will replace the baby Lambo in late 2014. Word also has it, that the new Lamborghini will be called the Cabrera.
The vehicle in these photos looks to have abandoned some of the Gallardo’s angular features in favour of smoother lines, though it’s possible body cladding is hiding the car’s true design. Murcielago SV-style sills and side air intakes serve up quite a bit of aggression and the silhouette is reminiscent of its to be big brother, the Aventador.
The Cabrera is likely to ride on the second-generation Audi R8 platform, complete with a composite aluminum and carbon fiber construction to reduce weight as much as possible. It’s expected to be powered by an upgraded version of the 5.2-liter V10 powerplant in the current Gallardo, producing around 600 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
