Lamborghini Cabrera

Lamborghini Cabrera

All good things must come to an end, so the Gallardo is packing things up and moving out of Lamborghini’s entry-level supercar spot to make room for a brand new baby. Rumors swirled about the name of this new supercar, and the final decision was Huracán LP 610-4 and not "Cabrera," as we initially thought.

The Huracán LP 610-4’s name is derived from a fighting bull from 1879. This Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed of bull was unrelenting and thrust himself into bull-fighting stardom courage and strong sense of attack.

This new new Lamborghini will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, but it will also have more than 130 private showings that start in January. We expect to see it in dealers starting in mid- to late-2014.

Updated 06/23/2014: Lamborghini unveiled a new video revealing the technical details behind the new Huracan supercar. It is by far one of the coolest technical videos I’ve seen in some time.

Lamborghini promised that we’ll get the first details on the Lamborghini Gallardo successor just in time for Christmas, which makes us think that these leaked images are legit. The images initially appeared on the Italian site LaStampa, but the guys over Carscoops managed to get them just before the Italian site took them down. This quick takedown again points toward these images being the real deal, but who knows.

Though still unconfirmed, all signs point to the Gallardo successor being named Huracan LP610-4, and not Cabrera as rumors initially claimed. The model also carries the "LP610-4" in its name, which means that its updated V-10 engine will deliver a total of 610 PS (602 horsepower). The model will also be offered with an all-wheel-drive system.

The images found today appear to be computer generated, but that doesn’t mean they are fake, as automakers often use computer-generated images when they display their vehicles digitally.

The Gallardo successor’s debut is now just days away, so we don’t have to wait too awful long to find out if these images are real or fake.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

We should get the official details on the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo in just a few days, but our spy photographers are still out trying to snap up images of the car. This time, they managed to get some shots of supercar testing in wintery conditions in Northern Sweden.

The prototype caught testing today is equipped with lots of extra lights. Of course, these lights are not actually part of the car. Rather, they are just a requirement for the conditions it was driving in.

The new supercar, which will almost certainly will be called the Huracan, but was once rumored to carry the name Cabrera , will be built on the same platform as the upcoming Audi R8 , and it will be powered by an updated version of the current 5.2-liter, V-10 engine.

This revised V-10 will produce 600 horsepower, according to rumors, and the car’s total weight will be significantly reduced when compared to the current Gallardo, so it should be slightly faster and more agile than the model it will replace.

Until we’ll have the chance to finally see the new car, you can try to make it through the world’s three most annoying teaser videos: episode 1, episode 2 and episode 3.

Lamborghini continues to push the envelope of aggravating teasers, with its video series for the upcoming successor to the Gallardo — once rumored as the Cabrera — featuring the three Lambo nuts from London in the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory.

If you haven’t followed the story until now, let us get you up to speed. In episode 1, three guys from London decided to take a trip to Lamborghini’s plant in Italy to be the first ones to "see the new creature car." In episode two, they are already in Italy and slink away from the factory tour in order to stay over night in the factory.

All we really learned n the first two is that one guy has a pretty good-looking girlfriend who likes to walk around nearly nude around her boyfriend’s friends, and that these three guys are like the 007s of spy photographers.

In this latest episode, dubbed "Gettin Closer," the three guys managed to sneak past security and a few office workers, and they are now deep inside the factory. Of course, don’t expect to see the new supercar just yet, as Lambo has a little more teasing to do. Don’t fret, though, as Lamborghini promised us a look at the car by Christmas.

We have gone back and forth between "Huracan" and "Cabrera" as the name of the upcoming successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo , and Cabrera was pretty much the most accepted name. Well, we heard different from a few TopSpeed faithful and we even reported that it will not be named "Cabrera."

Now, according to Auto Express, Lamborghini has decided to name its new supercar the Huracan, the very same name it trademarked back in April 2012.

Initially, this name fueled speculation that it would be used for the production version of the Urus SUV Concept . Instead, Lamborghini apparently called an audible, choosing "Huracan" as the name of the successor to the Gallardo, an appropriate enough name, considering the word is Mayan for "God of fire, wind and storms" and later adopted by the Spanish to mean "hurricane".

With Huracan already accounted for, it’s beginning to look more and more likely that the production version of the Urus SUV Concept will be called Deimos , the other name Lamborghini registered around the same time as Huracan.

Nothing has been made official on the name, as the report is from an unnamed "source" and Lamborghini has been known to make quick modifications to its choice of names for its models.

That being said, it’s looking more and more like the supercar we’re waiting to be revealed later this month is actually the Lamborghini Huracan LP 600-4.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

We should get the first official images and details on the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo in just a few days, but our spy photographers are still hard at work, trying to find the new supercar out and about, and today they succeeded.

The new Lambo was long rumored to carry the name "Cabrera ," but new details suggest that this will not be its name after all. Details from folks that actually reserved the car suggest that it will be called the Huracan, but those are also unconfirmed. One thing we do know for sure is that it will carry "LP600-4" in its name, which lets us know that it’s engine will pump out 600 horsepower output, and that it will feature an all-wheel-drive system.

The new supercar will be built on the same platform as the next-generation Audi R8 , and will be powered by an improved version of the current 5.2-liter, V-10 engine. Reports also suggest that it will be lighter than the current Gallardo, which means that that it should deliver improved performance figures.

Until we get the chance to see the new supercar unveiled, check out the latest Lamborghini teasers: episode one and episode two.

A few days ago, Lamborghini invited you to listen to the engine sound of the Gallardo ’s successor. Now the real teasing begins with the first episode of a series that will reveal, step by step, the upcoming supercar, which is most commonly known as the Cabrera .

The only problem is that the first video says nearly nothing about the car. Called "The Plan," it features three guys that plan to embark on a "secret mission:" get from London to Lamborghini’s plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and be the first ones to see "the new creature car." We’re just hoping that the next episode will provide more info about the car and less about the three guys and one girlfriend.

Lamborghini promised that the first details on the new Cabrera will be released before Christmas, but before that check out www.hexagonproject.com for more details and updates on the car.

Toreros come and go, as do the bulls they fight. The Lamborghini Gallardo has retired from the arena after almost a decade in production, and now the Lamborghini Cabrera, or whatever the final production name ends up being, is next in line to replace the best-sold Lamborghini to date. Spy shots of the upcoming bull are all over the Internet, and now, for the first time, an Italian magazine has published what could be photos of the production Cabrera.

Although we can’t confirm these to be of the actual supercar , the designers are worthy of praise for giving us a glimpse of what could be the next Lamborghini model in the December issue of Quattroruote magazine. If these images are just digital renders, then the artists deserve loads of credit.

With these supposedly leaked images of the Cabrera wearing a Aventador -esque dress in yellow hue, you do get a sense of a baby Aventador — just like all of the rumors are claiming this new model will be.

The sleek headlamp cluster has twin luminous strips in a "V" shape, The front bumper, with its large twin air-intakes, are also something you would expect on a Lamborghini .

From the side, the subtle similarities with the Aventador are more evident. Towards the rear, the horizontal taillight cluster and the unbroken mesh grille under it have been carried over from the past model, albeit with redesigned, contemporary look.

These images certainly look the part of real leaks, but with so many spot-on renderings circulating the Internet, we cannot say if these are real or not.

Just yesterday, Lamborghini announced the production of the last Gallardo and today it has already started to tease its successor. The Italian company launched a new microsite — www.hexagonproject.com — that allows visitors to "discover the roar of the new creature from Lamborghini."

What does this mean? Well, visitors can push the ignition button from the screen to hear the revs of the supercar’s new engine. Lamborghini said nothing about it, but rumors suggest it will be a considerably improved version of the current V-10 engine with its output nearing the 600-horsepower range.

Our only question is why the microsite is called "Hexagon Project" when most people expect the new supercar to be called Cabrera ? Could it because we are maybe not listening to the Gallardo’s successor, but just another special based on the Aventador — a model that features lots of hexagonal lines? We can’t tell for sure, but considering the Cabrera is the only model that Lamborghini is currently testing, to our knowledge, we tend to believe that this is the first teaser for the Gallardo successor.

Let’s take a little break from the auto show debuts for a second and focus on the latest spy shots of the upcoming Lamborghini Cabrera . Our spy shooters managed to catch the new Cabrera sitting in a parking lot. and as you can see, it has finally rid itself of that nasty black camouflage. Now all that obscures our view of it is that psychedelic camouflage, which does little to hide all the sexy details of this new Lambo.

We expect Lamborghini to reveal the new Cabrera at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show , and it will offer some major updates when compared to the Gallardo — the model it will replace.

On top of being lighter than the Gallardo , it will also carry a revised V-10 engine that we expect to deliver around 600 horsepower.

Rumors suggest that it will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.2 seconds and will hit a top speed of 186 mph in its base version. More powerful variants will also come at a later date, pushing it past the 200 mph barrier.
