Lamborghini Cabrera Details Emerge

We think you’ll al agree that while there are reasons to still like the Murcielago, the Aventador is better looking, much faster and a lot more planted. But the millionaire's plaything is a huge investment and there’s a waiting list as long as a brontosaurus’ tail.

So naturally, we’re eager to see the next new Lambo, one that’s going to be a bit cheaper and easier to get. Obviously, we’re talking not about the SUV, but about the replacement for the Gallardo. 12,000 of these have already been sold over the car’s history, and a replacement called the Cabrera will arrive next year.

Car and Driver interviewed Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann, who said the Cabrera will make “a clear cut” from the Gallardo, adding the new design will be a revolution rather than an evolution.

The new car will of course still be a two-seater with a V10 borrowed largely from the Gallardo. But the good news is that it’s supposed to send its 600 horsepower to the AWD system via a dual-clutch automatic gearbox (only).

Carbon fiber won’t be used as much as in the Aventador, and the platform will be borrowed from VW Group. As a result, the Cabrera will share 15 to 20 percent more parts with Audis or Porsches than the current car.
