Spy Shots: Lamborghini Cabrera Out Testing
Lamborghini Gallardo’s successor is rumored to arrive in a concept version at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, but it looks like the company is already testing the production version of the supercar. The car was recently caught testing in hot conditions and it’s getting pretty clear that it will get an Aventador-inspired look. From the spy shots, we gather that the prototype will have dimensions similar to the Gallardo.
The successor to the Gallardo is rumored to carry the Cabrera name, which is, of course, the name of a famed Spanish bull. The new Cabrera will bring a series of new features and will be built on the same lightweight, carbon-fiber monocoque as the Aventador, which will make it about 60 pounds lighter than the current Gallardo.
Expect the production version of the Lamborghini Cabrera to be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The coupe version will be followed by a a number of variants in the years thereafter, including Spyder and the Superleggera models.

The upcoming Lamborghini Cabrera will be built on the same lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque found in the Aventador. Under the hood, Lamborghini will keep the same V-10 engine found in the current Gallardo, but initial rumors indicate that it will receive a supercharger to crank it from 552 horsepower to 600 horsepower.
The moncoque will make the new Cabrera a little bit lighter than the Gallardo it replaces, so it will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and up to an improved top speed of 203 mph.
