Next Lamborghini Flagship

Meet the next ultimate Lambo!

These pictures give us the best look yet at how the raging bull of the future will shape up – and it’s set to eclipse the existing Murciélago in every way.

The car has yet to be given a name, but it’s expected to combine Lamborghini owner Audi’s aluminium spaceframe chassis with a carbon fibre bodyshell.

That will make it much lighter than the Murciélago it replaces – and guarantees stunning performance to go with the incredible looks.

Up front is a pronounced spoiler and fresh headlamps – but designers have reserved the biggest changes for the rear. They have moved the Murciélago’s trademark angular exhaust closer to the ground, while new strip-like LED tail-lights replace the current square units.

Power is expected to come from a 6.0-litre V12 with around 700bhp – that would propel the car from 0-60mph in just over three seconds.

The new Lambo will also be wider and longer, while four-wheel drive ensures it’s firmly planted on the road.

Preliminary prototypes have been spied near Germany’s Nürburgring track, but the car is unlikely to arrive before 2012.

The newcomer will also pave the way for future generations of hybrid Lambos.

It will be the brand’s first car to use efficient technologies such as stop-start and energy regeneration, and is a major step towards bosses’ plans to deliver the first-ever Lamborghini hybrid by 2015.

The front has some really unnecesary creases and lines but DAMN what an agressive looking car. Then you get to the rear and it all goes horribly wrong!
It's a bad mix of the Estoque and Reveton. It has too much 'body' at the back. Should have more in the way of vents and mesh like Lambos should. Oh well.

This car makes me sad. I don't think that lamborghini can really top the LP670-SV, which is undoubtably the best Lamborghini we will see for many years to come.

As for the styling, the front looks like an orgy of the LP560-4, Estouqe, and if you look at the headlights... 458 Italia? Hmmm... And i agree with Jenson that Lamborghini's are supposed to be all about ray guns, and giant mesh holes, and switches from the lunar module... no wait, that pagani isn't it. lol.

You forgot tubes that wouldn't look amiss in a Super Mario game Wink
The Zonda sure has an...... original interior.
I see what you mean about the lights. Its the random crease line from the upper edge that does it.
