This new Lamborghini car is speculated to eclipse the existing Murcielago in every way. It doesn't have a name yet but it's expected to combine Lamborghini owner Audi aluminum spaceframe chassis with a carbon-fiber bodyshell. The result is that it will be much lighter than the Murcielago it replaces. For sure, performance will be awesome.

Up front is a pronounced spoiler and fresh headlamps but designers have reserved the biggest changes for the rear.

They have moved the Murcielago trademark angular exhaust closer to the ground, while new strip-like LED tail-lights replace the current square units.

Powering the car is a 6.0-liter V12 that produces about 700bhp and would propel the car from 0-60mph in just over three seconds. It will also be wider and longer, while four-wheel drive ensures it's firmly planted on the road.

While preliminary prototypes have been spied near Germany's Nurburgring track, don't hold your breath, as the car is unlikely to arrive before 2012.
