Lamborghini Teases New Murcielago Replacement

Lamborghini. Sound and light. Paris 2010.
Discover the way to the future of supersports cars.

If that doesn’t sound like a teaser for the new Lamborghini “Jota” – the replacement for the long-running Murcielago supercar – I don’t know what does. Lamborghini just released this teaser image of the new car, and says there are five more images on the way before the 2010 Paris Motor Show next month.

We spotted Lamborghini testing the new car earlier this year, but the spy shots asked more questions than they answered.

Of course it’s all speculation, but we expect the Murcielago replacement to get an all-new V12 engine dropped into the rear, sport a revised AWD drivetrain, and actually be smaller and lighter than the current Murcielago by using a new carbon fiber tub and lighter components all-around.

Power? Performance? Who knows, but I’d say expect over 700 hp out of the new engine, and a zero to 60 mph time in the high 2 seconds. Once we know more, you’ll know more.

Hi! I founded 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
