Official: 2013 is the Final Year for Lamborghini Gallardo

2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 debuted with a new front and rear end at the Paris Motor Show in September. The new front end features triangular and trapezoidal forms, giving the Gallardo a stronger and more forceful look, while the air outlet at the rear for the power unit has a wider surface area, improving its thermodynamic efficiency.

The Gallardo has been on the market since 2004 and the changes clearly are not enough to keep it fresh for much longer. Confirming earlier rumours, Lamborghini has confirmed now that the 2013 is the last year for the Gallardo, meaning the successor will arrive most likely in early 2014.

There are already speculations circulating, that the new car will be called “Cabrera”, which means “goat herder”.

The new car will very likely share its platform with the next-generation Audi R8, that could be also used by Porsche for a new sports car, that will sit between the 911 and 918 Spyder.

Naturally aspirated V10 is expected again, though this time without the manual transmission, meaning all cars will come with a paddle-shifted, dual-clutch automatic.
