Lamborghini Cabrera reveals new details during a hot test session on the 'Ring

Earlier this week the Lamborghini Cabrera was caught for the first time testing on the Nürburgring.

The testing continues and we are back with some pretty cool shots. The Gallardo replacement has lost some of the side camouflage and reveals new air intakes behind the side window. We also get to see part of the interior.

These hot laps also show blue flames coming out of the exhausts pipes when the driver was down shifting. Let’s hope the Cabrera is not bursting into flames like many Italian supercars have done in the past.

The Cabrera will share many components with the second-generation Audi R8 and is expected to weigh less than 1,500kg thanks to extensive use of aluminium and carbon fibre.

Power will come from a naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 with around 600bhp. 1,500kg, all-wheel drive and 600bhp is not a bad combo!

The Gallardo successor is expected to debut in the first half of 2014.
