There’s been a lot of automotive turnaround in Lamborghini over the past year. We saw the Murcielago come to pass, followed by the arrival of the Aventador, and most recently, the upcoming concept debut of the new Lamborghini SUV. Now, details have surfaced regarding the eventual successor to the Gallardo.
Speaking to Car and Driver, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann bared the first details behind the Cabrera supercar, Lamborghini’s future "entry level" model. According to Winkelmann, the Cabrera will represent a "styling revolution" from the Gallardo, a phrase that’s definitely going to generate some serious buzz within the auto circle. In addition, the Cabrera is will also be a two-seater model with a V10 engine that’s expected to carry around 600 horsepower.
Winkelmann also mentioned that the Cabrera won’t use as much carbon fiber as the Aventador in order to shave off the price tag for the supercar. Likewise, the Cabrera will also be sharing its platform with the Volkswagen Group that includes Audi and Porsche.
With the Gallardo nearing its last legs - over 12,000 models have already been sold - it appears that the Cabrera is getting closer and closer to making its debut. When that happens, it’s going to be the latest line-up upheaval from the Italian automaker, opening up a new chapter of supercar awesomeness that only Lamborghini can provide.
