    A successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo has been rumored for several years now, and this might just be a prototype of the car, rumored to be called the Cabrera, out testing out in the wild.

    Heavily camouflaged but unmistakably sporting Lamborghini’s styling, these spy photos were posted on Instagram and could be our first look at the Gallardo successor. The timing of these spy photos makes us wonder if Lamborghini could be unveiling a concept of its Cabrera at the upcoming 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

    The next-generation of the Italian automaker’s entry-level model is expected to get styling cues from the Sesto Elemento and the Aventador, while maintaining the familiar body lines of the Gallardo. Based by these photos, however, it appears that Lamborghini has given the rear of the Gallardo-successor some drastic styling changes.

    As for what will power the exotic, it is expected that Lamborghini will use a new variant of its 5.2-liter V10 engine that will output around 600 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. It is also expected to go on a diet compared to the Gallardo, weighing in at around 3,300 pounds.

    Lamborghini Cabrera to Have 600-HP, Seven-Speed DCT

    The successor to the highly successful Lamborghini Gallardo will be revealed early next year and the first details of the car, reportedly named the Cabrera, are starting to surface.

    The exotic sports car will be powered by a 5.2-liter, V10 engine that currently powers the Gallardo LP 570-4 but will be modified to have an output of around 600 horsepower. The engine will be mated to a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission, replacing the single-clutch e-gear automated manual. As a result, the Gallardo will deliver much improved daily driveability.

    The Cabrera is expected to share its platform with the 2015 Audi R8 which means expect plenty of aluminum and carbon fiber to help lighten the load. It is believed the two-wheel-drive variants will weight as little as 2,865 pounds.

    Naturally, a convertible is expected to join the lineup a year later.

  9. The Gallardo is the best selling lambo of all time with over 13,000 sold. 10 times more than any other lambo, do they really want to mess with that?

    Lamborghini Cabrera Spied Storming the ‘Ring’

    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.

  13. Damn it looks good in the camo even. Kinda like a kit car maybe, but good looking one at least.
