Camouflaged Gallardo replacement caught testing. Still don't know if it will be called the Lamborghini Cabrera


I honestly believe we will see for the first time the Lamborghini Gallardo replacement at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. This car has been spotted testing several times in the last few months, indicating the public presentation is getting nearer, but the information is still scarce.

The recent concepts shown by Lamborghini, like the Sesto Elemento, Egoista and Veneno will all contribute a little to Cabrera's final design. But from these two images we only get an idea on how the profile and rear will look like.

We can only speculate on what engine it will use, but we can imagine a 5.2-liter V10 with around 600PS (592bhp or 441kW) is a good possibility. One thing Lamborghini engineers will pay special attention is the weight reduction. With a probable 1400kg (3087lbs) objective, they will have to use a lot of carbon fiber and aluminum.

The all-wheel drive system will be standard, and so is the automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Later, manual and rear-wheel drive special versions might be offered by the Italian company, but that still has to be confirmed.
