Lamborghini Murcielago’s Successor Spotted – Meet the Jota

Lamborghini Jota

We finally have the first spy shots of the long-awaited successor to the Lamborghini Murcielago. We knew that the Lamborghini was putting an end to the flagship car when they released the mind-blowingly excellent Murcielago LP670-4 SV, but other than rumors, we didn’t have any information, pictures, nothing.

Now though, some lucky spy photographers caught the successor, which we think will be called the Jota, on a snow-covered test track making its rounds.

As you may have noticed, the bodywork seems to be a Gallardo/Murcielago/Reventon combination, with a few odd vents and lines thrown in. The Lamborghini Jota is expected to use an all-new V12 engine developed just for this car that would put out more than 700 horsepower and use a revised all-wheel-drive powertrain.

We really don’t have any more information on the car, so head over to LamboCars.com for more pictures and analysis.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
