Lamborghini Gallardo replacement will debut in 2014, concept version coming at Frankfurt

Article by Christian A., on June 17, 2013

According to the latest reports from Autocar, it appears that Lamborghini is preparing a big surprise for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show: a new concept car that previews the Gallardo successor. Set to go on sale in 2014, the new Gallardo replacement will feature a lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum spaceframe structure.

The new vehicle will be 16 mm longer than the current Gallardo (4500 mm) and will have a width of 1900 mm and a height of 1165 mm. A new 2600 mm wheelbase will also be used. Using the new spaceframe structure, the Italian manufacturer aims to bring the new Lambo to the scales at less than 1500 kg.

Under the hood, we will find an updated version of the 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine delivering around 600 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque and mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox or the optional new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic from the Audi R8. Just like the Gallardo by Valentino Balboni, the new vehicle will be AWD but will also offer a RWD version. Regarding its name, more rumors suggest that the Gallardo replacement will be named Cabrera.
