Step by step, the Lamborghini Gallardo is approaching the end of its model run, and now it’s time for its successor, the rumored “Cabrera”. As expected, Lamborghini was never going to let its bread winner go out without a bang.
The automaker is planning to unveil a limited edition model at next month’s 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, an invite for which we saw last week.
As you can see, the car maker wouldn’t officially say much more, new reports suggest that Lamborghini’s new “super sports car” will be a road-going version of its Gallardo Super Trofeo race car.
Being based on the LP560-4, only 30 examples of the track special have been made. As the fastest, most extreme Gallardo of all, the model will be a fitting way to mark the end of the car’s production. This new model is expected to don the LP 570-4’s 570 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque 5.2-liter V-10 engine, as well as a six-speed e-gear transmission and race-spec suspension.
According to Autoexpress, the Frankfurt show star will follow the same formula, with an even lower kerbweight than any roadgoing Gallardo before it, plus more aggressive looks and, potentially, additional power from its V10 engine. Also a 0-62mph time of three seconds and a 210mph top speed are likely.
Beside this, Lamborghini is planning a roadster version of the Aventador flagship, likely to debut towards the end of next year.
Price: approaching £200,000, probably
