No manual gearbox for Lamborghini Gallardo successor, RWD version considered

 No manual gearbox for Lamborghini Gallardo successor, RWD version considered

To get a new bull name.

The Lamborghini Gallardo will turn 10 next year so it’s time for a proper successor, not just another special/limited edition. It will get a new bull name and is expected to borrow some of the technology that the Italian automaker developed for the Sesto Elemento.

It will have a naturally-aspirated engine without hybrid technology and will be offered without a manual gearbox. Lamborghini’s commercial director Fintan Knight recently revealed to CarAdvice during the Australian International Motor Show that there is still room for a rear-wheel drive version, adding that the car will be launched “sometime in the future”.

Lamborghini has refreshed the Gallardo lineup recently by introducing the LP 560-4 facelift, the LP 570-4 Edizione Tecnica and the 2013 Spyder. Since these updated models will be out in about a month or so, it’s safe to say that we won’t be seeing the successor of the Gallardo before the middle of next year.

Something to think about is the fact that most automatics are now much faster shifting than a manual and most good automatics are faster than their manual conterparts .

What a shame there will be no manual for this successor. A RWD version is great, but it should be paired with a manual transmission as a proper car. Other than that, that's incredible how the Gallardo has been around for almost 10 years already. wow.
