2012 Lamborghini Jota testing on Nurburgring
While Lamborghini is performing a slow and sensual strip tease of their future supercar by way of a few teaser photos, spy photographers are busy taking pictures of the car testing at the Nurburgring. However, this is one case where giving away the milk for free will not stop anyone from buying the cow.
The 2012 Jota will be powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine that will produce in excess of 700bhp and 700Nm of torque (there are voices suggesting it will be 720 HP). The car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds, while top speed will be in the 225 mph area. The engine will be mated to a seven-speed, paddleshift automated manual gearbox. It will be shorter and weigh about 300lbs. less than the Murcielago. It will be built on a new carbon-fiber tub and will use as much aluminum and carbon fiber as possible to reduce weight. The only new information these spy images reveal are Reventon-style intakes and a retractable rear wing.
We’ll come back with more details on the Jota as soon as it is revealed at the Paris Motor Show on September 30th.
