Lamborghini bringing two models to Paris
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.
