AutoGuide’s spy photographers caught Lamborghini’s successor to the Gallardo making early morning laps of the Nurburgring in Germany today wearing very little camouflage.
Lamborghini’s Gallardo is a decade old and will soon retire to make way for its replacement: the Cabrera. Past reports suggest that the car will have 600 hp on tap through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which will offer Lambo buyers refinement that the Gallardo’s automated manual gearbox can’t.
Expect a massaged version of the same 5.2-liter V10 found in the Gallardo engine compartment. The new supercar is also expected to share its platform with the 2015 Audi R8. Extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum are rumored to bring its curb weight down to 2,865 lbs in rear-wheel drive form. With the new car, Lamborghini is also expected to excuse manual transmissions from its product portfolio altogether, even ditching its 6-speed e-Gear transmission in favor of a new 7-speed dual clutch unit.
