Wild Speed used his imagination and the recent spy photos and video to create some rendering pictures of the Lamborghini Cabrera, the supercar that will replace the Gallardo. The renderings borrow several design ideas from the Aventador and the Sesto Elemento.
The new supercar will be presented either in the report of Detroit in January or at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014. It is codenamed LP724, it will have a structure made of carbon and aluminum, with the body being of CFRP. It is 16 mm larger than the Gallardo, making it have a length of 4.5 meters . The height will remain the same as the height of the Gallardo, close to 1.165 mm, while the width will be close to 1.9 meters . However, it will have a larger wheelbase , providing more space for its passengers .
Although the initial desire Lamborghini, was the new entry-level model to be constructed on the platform of the Aventador, eventually because of the costs, the new Gallardo will be built on the same as the second generation of the AUDI R8, making it lose Italian roots. The car will be built on the new modular platform of VW Group, MSS (Modular Sports Car System) which will be used by both the new Audi R8 and also a few new models of Porsche. The chassis of the Cabrera weigh will weigh 195 kilos.
It will borrow many technological elements from the Sesto Elemento while being less complex in construction , so as to increase the profitability of Lamborghini. It will be equipped with the same V10 5.2- liter engine as the Gallardo which will get stronger and produce close to 600 horses with 541 Nm of torque. The Cabrera will weigh close to 1,500 kilos it will be able to do the 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds .
The basic version will be four-wheel drive , later there will be special rear-wheel drive versions , with the power to pass to the wheels through a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission . It will be available in both coupe and cabrio versions in design and according to the CEO of Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann it will have a clearer styling , borrowing elements from the Aventador, Sesto Elemento, Veneno and Egoista.
