Lamborghini Cabrera spied up-close image

Lamborghini Gallardo’s successor, the Cabrera, has been recently spied up-close and it’s now wearing even less camouflage on its body, revealing some of its lines.

The Italian based automaker Lamborghini has been working on the Cabrera for quite some time now and the official successor of the Gallardo is getting ready for a huge official unveil in 2014, probably during a major international automotive event, like the one in Detroit, in January, or the one in Geneva, in February. But before it will be officially unveiled, the new Lamborghini Cabrera has to be tested severely because it has the tough job of replacing one of the most popular supercars ever, the Gallardo.

The images posted below have been taken by the Car Advice photographers and they are revealing the Lamborghini Cabrera without its cladding, for the first time ever. We can easily see the LED taillights with a slim design, the quad exhaust system in the rear and the overall lines of the supercar. As far as the engine goes, the new Lamborghini Cabrera is believed to receive a 5.2 liter V10 modified unit under its hood. The platform and underpinnings will still be shared with the new Audi R8 generation.
