Lamborghini’s new supercar being shown to select customers around the world

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 2, 2010

Lamborghini’s Stephan Winkelmann has been bringing the replacement to the Murcielago around the world to show it to selected customers. Winkelmann said that instead of getting involved directly, the dealers are asked to choose which customers to invite.

It’s likely that Lamborghini’s next-generation flagship will have the same four-wheel drive layout as the current car, and use an all-new V12 engine delivering as much as 700bhp.

This stands for a more than 10% gain compared to the outgoing model. This flagship, which has yet to be given a name, is believed to feature a carbonfiber tub as Lamborghini attempts to drop some weight off the Murciélago’s 1740kg bulk.

From looking at this disguised test car, it is apparent that the exterior styling includes some of the angular panel surfacing that is expected to feature on the Paris concept.

So far, this has only been seen in a series of teaser images. There’s actually very little known about the rest of the running gear of this car. Sources claim that a dual-clutch unit is excluded but they imply that the car will have a different proposition from Lamborghini’s automated manual e-gear system.

It has been reported that Lamborghini is working on an all-new suspension set-up, likely to be a pushrod configuration.
