It’s always fun trying to anticipate what specifications and design details will come our way before a car is actually introduced. It’s what us car geeks in the world use to entertain our ever curious auto minds. In October at the Paris Auto Show, Lamborghini will unveil the new Jota - the company’s replacement for the current Murcielago, but until we get the official details we are going to sit around and speculate just like we have done with this same Jota many times before. Today, however, we have some new details on this supercar. No time like the present, so let’s get on with it.

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.

Despite this impressive number, the next Jota will be an even more economical car: it will have a fuel consumption of just 12 liters / 100 km.

The new supercar will be designed in house and will feature a carbon fiber chassis and various carbon body parts which help reduce the weight of the car. It will also come with Audi’s torque vectoring technology which offers even better handling.

Besides the aforementioned features, the Jota will come with all the Lamborghini trademarks: lambo scissors doors, a leather/Alcantara/carbon fiber combo on the interior, and a head-up display.

Agreed! The speed performance of the car is quite impressive! With the power output of this car bet it would be a speedy car. BTW, I was impressed on its 0-60 mph lap time record.

Yeah, I can see the concept is great and v12 technology is quite modern compare to its current engine. I hope they will line up this car for future production.

Apple green makes this car really gorgeous, and the aspect of this car are really huge I almost imagine that this car can almost fly with that kind of engine.

That was a large air vent. I bet it’s new engine has more power that’s why I needs more air.
