We thought we had died and gone to heaven when Lamborghini revealed that they were bringing their all new supercar, set to be the Murcielago’s replacement, to the Paris Motor Show at the end of the month. And while we were preparing to cover one of the biggest auto shows of the year, Lamborghini was planning yet another model to bring to Paris. A schedule that appeared on the internet revealed that the company will be unveiling a car known as the “LB715-5″ along with something called the “83X.”

The LB715-5 refers to the future V12 supercar that is known as the Jota. It will use a direct-injection V12 and a carbon-fiber tub reportedly made by Carbo Tech of Austria. Apparently the "715" in the nomenclature refers to the engine’s output.

What we are still drawing a blank on is the "83X." Rumors are circulating that it could be a Gallardo successor, a production version of the Estoque sedan, or even a GT car that will compete with the Ferrari 599 GTB/GTO. Our guess is that we will be seeing a concept car that will more than likely preview the Italian company’s future design language. We doubt Lamborghini would want to take much attention away from their new supercar.

Well, I guess Lambo cars also need to watch out for the newer version of Ferrari 599 because based from what I have heard on rumors this car would be the successor of 458 Italia.

I have no doubt on the performance of Lamborghini cars. Using its v12 technology, no wonder why it offers a more powerful engine with their latest cars!

well, all i can say that the Ferrari 599 performs better specially on tight corners.

I think the teaser we have seen on this post might be from the Gallardo replacement as it suggests a V10 engined car.
