2015 Lamborghini Cabrera hits the Ring

Looks promising

The Lamborghini Gallardo successor has been spied undergoing testing on the Nürburgring in Germany.

These are the first clear spy shots of the Cabrera (naming not confirmed) which can't come soon enough taking into consideration the Gallardo has been on the market for a decade. It will share its underpinnings with the second-gen Audi R8 (due in 2016) and will likely use an uprated naturally-aspirated V10 5.2-liter engine churning somewhere in the region of 600 bhp (447 kW) so the car's full name will probably be Cabrera LP600-4.

The regular model will have a four-wheel drive setup, but Lamborghini has already said special/limited editions will get a rear-wheel drive arrangement. Power will be transferred to the road with help from a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The new bull is expected to have a curb weight of less than 1,500 kg (3,306 lbs) and should blend in some of the styling cues seen on the Sesto Elemento and Aventador. The car will make extensive use of aluminum combined with carbon fiber and fiberglass for a lighter package worthy of the Lamborghini badge.

Should be awesome. Love the sound of that screaming V10. Discussed with a mechanic about the V10 engine and he stated it is so overbuilt for a racing engine that it can easily pass the 100,000 mile mark without any major mechanical problems.

Still will be using that decade old V10. Audi's 4.0 V8 is much better imo. And there is so much potential when it comes to V8

right! why pay premium for 15 year old tech ?(considering that it took at least 5 years to design and develop the old engine unit)

If they want to go force induction that engine will be chosen by them. But clearly they want this car to have a NA engine. Designing a new NA engine for a supercar is very costly so the best way is to tweak and modify the existing engine.
