Lamborghini Cabrera, Gallardo’s successor, might be unveiled in Frankfurt image

The Italian based automaker Lamborghini might pull a surprise on everyone and unveil the official successor of the Gallardo, the Cabrera, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Lamborghini is already said to give its whole attention to the so-called Cabrera, the official replacement of the Gallardo, and now rumors are saying that the supercar in question might be presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in September. The model is apparently known internally as the LP724 and it will get a lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum spaceframe structure, once it will arrive in production in 2014.

The Lamborghini Cabrera is rumored to be 16 mm longer than the Gallardo, to a total length of almost 4,500 mm. The height and width will remain the same, at 1,900 mm wide and 1,165 mm tall. The wheelbase will increase and this will be transformed into a better comfort in the cabin. The initial plans were to use Aventador’s platform with the development of the Cabrera, but it seems that Audi has won this battle because the model will have a lot of things in common with the second generation of the R8, which will make its way onto the market in 2015.
