Filed under: Frankfurt Motor Show, Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, Lamborghini, Luxury Facebook user Marchettino (already a minor YouTube celebrity for his supercars channel) spotted the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo throne out and about on public streets and was kind enough to snap a few photos of the machine. Word has it that a concept car precursor to the newest supercar will bow at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show this September under the Cabrera name. As you've likely already heard, the model is said to ride on the second-generation Audi R8 platform, complete with a composite aluminum and carbon fiber construction to reduce weight as much as possible. How light will will the Cabrera be? Lamborghini is reportedly shooting for a curb weight of around 3,300 pounds. Power will likely come from a massaged version of the 5.2-liter V10 in the current Gallardo. Expect around 600 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle in these photos looks to have abandoned some of the Gallardo's angles in favor or more organic lines, though it's possible body cladding is hiding the car's true design. Murcielago SV-style sills and side air intakes serve up quite a bit of aggression and the quad exhaust looks properly menacing as well. We can't wait to see the finished product.Lamborghini Cabrera spotted, ready to fill Gallardo shoes originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 18 Jun 2013 08:45:00 EST.

Filed under: Concept Cars, Frankfurt Motor Show, Coupe, Performance, Lamborghini, Luxury Lamborghini will give us a big clue as to the look and feel of the impending replacement for its Gallardo model at this September's Frankfurt Motor Show. According to a report by Autocar, the Italian supercar maker will have a concept car in Frankfurt that will preview a 2015 replacement for the current Gallardo (pictured above). While nothing is set in stone, the word is that Lamborghini is still considering "Cabrera" as the Gallardo-successor's name. We didn't know the company had so many Tigers fans, but the Autoblog Detroit office is stoked. The same report tells us that the new Lamborghini, currently going by the internal designation LP724, will be based on the same platform as the second-generation Audi R8, rather than on the more exotic Aventador underpinnings. That means a modular spaceframe, aluminum and carbon fiber construction and a reduction in curb weight as a result - the target is less than 3,300 pounds. Even with the diet, the next Gallardo will be slightly longer than the current car, but about the same height and width. The svelte Lamborghini will draw power from an updated version of the current 5.2-liter V10, which should be good for more than 600 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Autocar also indicates that both a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission will be optional on the new Gallardo, replacing the existing six-speed E-gear automated manual. Standard cars will offer all-wheel drive, but rear-drive models will be available at some point as well. Bring on Frankfurt, we're ready to see this one in the metal.Lamborghini to show Gallardo replacement concept in Frankfurt originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 17 Jun 2013 17:44:00 EST.

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet, Lamborghini, TV/Movies There's still plenty of time until Transformers 4 hits the big screen, and Michael Bay & Co. are making sure there is plenty of suspense in the meantime. Which is good, because we're not really expecting any actual suspense from the flick. Not wanting to drown you with short posts as Bay's website slowly and steadily starts to run down the list of cars that will appear in the movie, we've held off until now to give you a quick update roundup. Following the introduction of the new Optimus Prime, a Bugatti Veyron and a C7 Corvette last month, recent announcements include a "new" Bumblebee, a tactical vehicle named Hound and a Lamborghini Aventador. While the Aventador is sure to be an interesting addition to the cast of cars, Bumblebee looks to be trading in his fifth-gen Camaro digs for a highly modified first-gen Camaro shell. What does any of this mean for the next installment of Transformers? Very little, except for the fact that it looks like T4 won't be as much of a GM commercial as its predecessors and Michael Bay seems to be replacing the high budget of big-name actors with an equally high budget of exotic cars (plus Marky Mark).Transformers 4 casts Lamborghini Aventador, Bumblebee gets a new, old Camaro originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 12 Jun 2013 10:58:00 EST.

To mark its 50th anniversary, Lamborghini unveiled an outrageous one-off concept called the Egoista. This single-seat car celebrates Lamborghini’s long-standing appeal to ego through building extreme cars that shout “look at me!” “This is a car made for one person only, to allow them to have fun and express their personality to the maximum,” says Walter De Silva, the car’s designer and the design head for Volkswagen. (VW owns Audi, which in turn owns Lamborghini.) “It is designed purely for hypersophisticated...
