However, the future Lambo V12, which uses the Jotta unofficial name, is now back in the news, as a member of the FerrariChat forums claims to have attended a special pre-release presentation of the car that is said to have taken place in Singapore.
It seems like the next Raging Bull will come with a 6.5 liter V12 that will offer no less that 700 hp and a peak torque of 680 Nm. The driver will be able to push the powerplant all the way up to 8,250 rpm. The engine will be mated to a seven-speed single clutch gearbox that will deal with the gear-shifting process in as little as 50 ms.
And it gets better: as you know, Lamborghini has recently converted itself to the carbon fiber religion and the upcoming hypercar will be born under this sign. To be more precise, the car will use a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. This means that it will be some 229 kg lighter than the Murcielago and will come with a whopping 70 percent increase in rigidity.
All this should translate into mind-blowing performance. We’re talking about a 2.9 second time for the 0 to 62 mph sprint and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
The new Lambo V12 is reportedly going to make its world debut at next year’s Geneva Auto Show.
