Lamborghini Cabrera will be revealed in early 2014

You’re in for a disappointment if you were prepared to witness the debut of the Lamborghini Cabrera at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. It turns out that the debut of the 600-hp Lamborghini Gallardo replacement had to be postponed. According to Auto Express, the Cabrera will be introduced in early 2014 and is slated to go on sale in the later part of the year.

It’s rumored that the new Lamborghini will still be twinned with the second-generation Audi R8. The report also stated that the Cabrera will be powered by a 5.2-liter V-10 engine with an output of up to 600 hp. There will be a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic offered together with the six-speed manual. In addition, Lamborghini will build both rear- and all-wheel-drive versions of the Cabrera.

With a codename of PL724, the new Lamborghini is believed to be a bit longer and wider than the existing Gallardo. It’s expected to weigh much less due to its major use of aluminum and carbon fiber. It may even weigh lower than 2900 pounds for rear-wheel-drive variants. Notably, the next Audi R8 will use the same chassis as the Lamborghini.

The difference is that it will be available with both V-8 and V-10 engines. A Spyder model will follow in 2015 after the launch of the Lamborghini Cabrera coupe next year. This Spyder model will be equipped with the same engine and transmission and so, it’s expected to weigh the same or even lighter than the Lamborghini coupe.
