New Lamborghini Murcielago replacement spy pics

These are the first images that you can find of the pre-production, 225mph Lamborghini which will go on sale early next year with a price tag that is quite irrelevant since most of us won't be able to afford one. But if you do have about a million in your pocket, this is quite a feasible buy.


The new Lambo features a bespoke carbon composite chassis and a brand new 7.0-litre V12 engine, rumoured to have between 700-720bhp. And ever since Audi took over the wheel at Lambo, the range topping version will have four-wheel drive as standard and carbon fibre panels to make this mean machine super light. Its kerbweight is targeted to be less that 1500kg which means acceleration in this Lambo would mean neck aches and massive G forces on your eyeballs since 0-100km/h will take about 3.0 seconds.

Strangely though, the new Lambo will not feature a DSG transmission because it would be “too complex and too expensive” to engineer. Instead, the new Murcielago may come with the more conventional sequential seven-speed manual or a seven speed paddle-shifter. Sadly, Lamborghini has phased out the old school manual stick shift which may not go well with manual transmission fans...

No matter what Lamborghini throws into their new car, it will undoubtedly still be a Lamborghini. Loud, fast, and aggressive.

The current one in the pictures just looks like Darth Vader's ride.
