Unfortunately, the Italian marque has gone too far with the teasing concept, releasing an image that only allows us to see that the car will have a Raging Bull badge and a hood.
We expect the new supercar to ditch the heavy steel structure concept and go on a carbon fiber diet, as Stephan Winkelman, the automaker’s CEO announced that Lamborghini will focus more on weight cutting than beefier engines, while speaking to the media at the beginning of the current year. In addition to that, the vehicle could use multiple aluminum components to keep the weight down.
The vehicle, which may be dubbed Jota (in the honor of Bob Wallace’s 1970s Miura Jota test mule) is expected to be powered by a 6.0 liter V12 engines, which could have a power rating somewhere in the 700 hp zone. The engine should allow the car to cover the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in around 3 seconds.
The Jota is expected to be shorter that the Murcielago and loose its scissor doors (in an effort to save weight), with the car tipping the scales below the 1,500 kg mark.
The Lamborghini Murcielago replacement will be revealed this fall, at the Paris Auto Show. The supercar is expected to have a price that will maintain the level set by the Murcielago LP640.
