A while ago, we reported that Lamborghini was preparing to bid adieu to the current Gallardo supercar with one last special edition that will be unveiled at the 2012 Paris Auto Show. Today, with just a few hours before the show’s official launch, the Italian company has dropped a teaser video for this new Gallardo.
The video doesn’t show much about the new car, but it does feature a "Gallardo" logo towards the end. Then there’s the official description of the video which states "#nova is unveiling at Paris Motor Show 2012: September 27th - 9:00 am CET What’s next?"
The word "Nova" sticks out like sore thumb in that description. The Italian word for "new" is "nuovo," so it can’t be describing the new Gallardo as many of us expected. "Nova’ is the Portuguese word for "new," but we just don’t see Lamborghini going all Portuguese on us. The logical assumption would be that Lamborghini is preparing to unveil another special edition model, which is what the guys over at LamboCars.com think. In fact, they have created a rendering of said "Nova" model, or could this be a leaked image? They state that the model teased in the video is the final edition in the Gallardo lineup. Their keen eyes noticed a Superleggera style wheel, carbon fiber exterior rear view mirrors, and a Gallardo seat. Bottom line: This may just be a special edition Gallardo that delivers more power than the LP560-4.
Guess we’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to get the official information on this mysterious Gallardo Nova!
