The Italian based automaker Lamborghini is planning to release a replacement for the Gallardo supercar in 2014, which will get a lot of updates.
After being in production for quite a few years and with its larger brother, the Murcielago, getting a replacement already, in the form of the Aventadord, the small Lamborghini Gallardo is getting ready to leave the production line. According to the guys at Car and Driver, the successor of the Lamborghini Gallardo will hit the market in 2014 and the model will get AWD and RWD and it will be lighter, more powerful and with improved fuel consumption and revised CO2 emissions.
As a quick reminder, the Lamborghini Gallardo has been in production ever since 2003 and the model is being assembled in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. The Gallardo is coming in two body styles, a 2-door coupe and a 2-door spyder, with a mid-engine and AWD/RWD layout. The model has a choice of two engines, a 5.0 liter V10 and a 5.2 liter V10, which can be mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automated manual transmission. The Gallardo is 4,300 mm long, 1,900 mm wide and 1,165 mm tall (coupe) / 1,184 mm tall (spyder) and its wheelbase is 2,560 mm long.
