Lamborghini Gallardo

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 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.

Do you remember the annoying teaser video Lamborghini dropped a week ago that told us nearly nothing about Lamborghini’s new car? It was about three guys from London who wanted to take a trip to Lamborghini ’s plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and be the first ones to see "the new creature car," which we believe to be the Gallardo’s successor.

Well, now the annoying story continues, and this time it shows the three guys inside Lamborghini’s museum in Sant’Agata Bolognese. From there, they sneak inside the factory where the new supercar is supposedly being developed. As expected, this video also shows nothing about the new car, but it does feature the obligatory good looking woman, who will apparently be part of the next episode. So, the waiting continues...

The Gallardo succesor, which reports are pointing toward not being called the Cabrera , despite previous reports that it would carry that name, will be revealed sometime before Christmas. Various reports indicate that the model will be in fact be a stumpy version of the Aventador, but with a personality all its own.

Stay tuned for more details on the new supercar.

Lamborghini already started teasing the Gallardo successor , and Lambo promised us the first details on it by Christmas. But, as Lamborghini tries to keep the model a secret, we continue to scour the web to find additional details on the new supercar .

Apparently our searching was worth the effort, as today we came across some interesting details on the upcoming supercar. These details were released by the folks at Only The Best, who apparently took a trip to Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese factory, where the new supercar and the Aventador will be produced, and caught a glimpse of the new car as the production-line door opened as they left the factory.

The other detail is that this new supercar will not be called the Cabrera as we believed. Instead Lamborghini opted for a completely different name that includes "LP600-4" — an indication of the 600 horsepower developed by the 5.2-liter, V-10 engine. Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that "Cabrera" will not be the official name, but this is one of the more hands-on reports that we’ve heard, given it actually happened...

The Gallardo’s replacement will be developed on the same chassis as the second-generation Audi R8 and will feature some design elements from the Miura , like the grilles across the entire rear window.

According to Only The Best, the model looks like a stumpy version of the Aventador with a rear end that is pretty similar to the V-12 supercar. The guys report that the model they saw on the factory donned Lambo’s signature Verde Ithaca paintjob.

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.

While the world was expecting to see the new-generation Gallardo, Lamborghini decided to come up with a new special edition based on the current model. Called the Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse, this new supercar is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo racecar, and, according to the Italian maker, it "brings race track emotion directly to the road."

The new supercar was named after the recently founded department within Automobili Lamborghini, which manages all motorsport activities from GT3 to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championships in Europe, Asia and America.

When compared to a base Gallardo LP 560-4, the new Squadra Corse version is lighter, more powerful and delivers improved performance figures. As expected, carbon fiber played an important role in the developments of the new Gallardo supercar and many elements were taken from the race track and brought to the road.

Lambo will fully outline the new Squadra Corse at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show .

Updated 09/09/2013: Lamborghini unveiled the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and this was the perfect moment to also bring some new images. Check them out in the picture gallery!

Updated 09/30/2013: Lamborghini unveiled a video (above) for its new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse that features the newest Gallardo variant racetrack. I look and sounds simply amazing, so enjoy!

Updated 12/03/2013: The very first Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse has landed in the U.S. The last of the Gallardos was spotted at Cats Exotics, a premium exotic car dealer. We did check out their website to look for more details about the Squadra Corse Gallardo parked at their dealership, but this being a highly exclusive model of the Gallardo supercar we think someone must have placed an order for it through Cats Exotics, WA. You can see the two images we have of the model here and here.

While getting ready for the Cabrera, some fans prepared a very cool tribute video to the Gallardo . After all. it was the best-sold supercar in Lamborghini’s history, with a total of 14,022 units sold, — about half of the the cars ever sold by the Italian supercar builder.

Over the years, the Gallardo saw many updates and even more special editions, developed specially to reinvent the car and to keep customers interested.

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.

Lamborghini Gallardo was unveiled in 2003 and during its decade-long run, it was Lamborghini ’s sales leader. Now — on November 25th. 2013 — ten years later, it’s time to say good-bye to an Icon in the supercar world, as the last Gallardo rolled off the production line.

The final Gallardo was number 14,022, and it was an LP 570-4 Spyder Performante variant draped in a Rosso Mars hue. The model will go to an unnamed private collector who will receive his car in the upcoming weeks.

To understand what a successful car the Gallardo was, you have to know that during its entire lifespan, Lamborghini sold a total of 30,000 units; nearly half of those were Gallardos. Also, before the Gallardo rolled into showrooms, the company sold a total of 250 units per year. The Gallardo’s presence drove sales numbers up to a total of 2,000 units per year.

With the Gallardo making its triumphant exit, Lambo will now focus on the supercar’s successor, which will be called either the Cabrera or Huracan.
