The dark knight

The sun is about to set on the Lamborghini Gallardo and our spies have managed to snap photos of its successor which is rumored to be called the Cabrera.

Caught undergoing testing at night, the heavily camouflaged prototype features a modern design that shares a number of cues with the Aventador. While the disguise hides a lot of details, we can see the car will have a wedge-shaped front fascia with prominent air intakes. Moving further back, there's a sporty greenhouse and the obligatory air intakes. The car also has a Sesto Elemento-inspired rear end with an aggressive diffuser and four-tailpipe sports exhaust system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but previous reports have indicated the model will be powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 that produces approximately 600 bhp (447 kW) and 400 lb-ft (541 Nm) of torque. It will send power to the ground via an all-wheel drive system but a rear-wheel drive variant is expected to be introduced sometime after the standard model is launched.

Besides being more powerful, the Cabrera is expected to be lighter than the Gallardo as it is slated to feature a variety of carbon fiber and aluminum components. Nothing is official but rumors have suggested it could tip at the scales at less than 3,306 lbs (1,500 kg).

A Cabrera concept could be introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show but the production model isn't scheduled to go on sale until 2015.

Lambo rules! I heard that Lambo owns Ducati motorcycles which has a mass production motorcycle that produces almost 200 horsepower/liter. Good things to come from Lambo.

Cabrera is going to be much more Lambo-looking and exotic, most likely having the Italian Fillipo Perini draw with the same lines done on the Aventador. Perhaps I will pony up the money in the used market.

Cant wait to see this car. I really wish they would go RWD with this car. Its main competition the 459 N 12C are both RWD. AWD just adds too much weight, leave that to the R8

Judging by the fact that the R8 went DCT... I would venture to say that this would go the same direction. But I can also see them making it ISR too.
