The Italian based automaker Lamborghini is planning to introduce the official replacement for the Gallardo in 2015 and it’s believed that the new supercar will be called the Cabrera.
The upcoming Lamborghini Cabrera has been spied a few times while it was being tested on public roads but it seems that the “raging bull” isn’t fast-forwarding it to production because it wants to make sure that everything goes just like it should, considering the fact that the Gallardo is probably one of the most popular supercars ever. The announcement has been made by Cristiano Inverni, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia Series coordinator, who has spoken to Motoring.
“Since, in 2015, we’re looking to launch the replacement of the Gallardo, then of course this will have also a racing version and that will be a new car. So from 2015 onwards we will continue racing under the Lamborghini brand but with a new car”, said Inverni.
Rumors on the replacement of the Gallardo are saying that the Cabrera will feature a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 unit, which will produce a total output of 600 HP (447 lb-ft) and 541 Nm (400 lb-ft) of torque. The Lamborghini Cabrera is believed to share some of the components, and platform, with the new generation of the Audi R8.
