Lamborghini Cabrera (Gallardo successor) spied testing in the dark

Here we have the latest and best spy shots of the Lamborghini Gallardo successor aka the Cabrera, caught testing during the night.

The new Lamborghini Cabrera looks a bit longer than the current Gallardo, but will be much lighter thanks to extensive use of aluminium and carbon fibre. The Cabrera will share many components with the second-generation Audi R8 and is expected to weigh less than 1,500kg.

The front looks lower compared to the Gallardo with huge air intakes in the front bumper and while the side profile is quite similar to the Gallardo, the rear is clearly different with very narrow tail lights.

Power will come from a naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 with around 600bhp. As with the Gallardo, all-wheel drive will be standard again and RWD models will follow later. An open top Gallardo Spyder will follow also.

The Cabrera is expected to debut later this year or in early 2014. Next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show is not very likely as  Lamborghini is bringing there a Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, which is most likely the last special edition Gallardo.
