Spy Shots: Lamborghini Gallardo Successor Caught Testing in the Rain
We should get the first official images and details on the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo in just a few days, but our spy photographers are still hard at work, trying to find the new supercar out and about, and today they succeeded.
The new Lambo was long rumored to carry the name "Cabrera," but new details suggest that this will not be its name after all. Details from folks that actually reserved the car suggest that it will be called the Huracan, but those are also unconfirmed. One thing we do know for sure is that it will carry "LP600-4" in its name, which lets us know that it’s engine will pump out 600 horsepower output, and that it will feature an all-wheel-drive system.
The new supercar will be built on the same platform as the next-generation Audi R8, and will be powered by an improved version of the current 5.2-liter, V-10 engine. Reports also suggest that it will be lighter than the current Gallardo, which means that that it should deliver improved performance figures.

The prototype caught testing today by our spy photographers still wears tons of camouflage, but we’ve heard enough rumors to get a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Gallardo’s successor.
These suggest that it will take some design elements, including the rear design, from the Aventador. Other parts, like the louvers on the rear window, draw their inspiration from the Miura.
Despite its inspiration coming from other Lambos, the model will have its own personality.
2014 Lamborghini Cabrera Rendering
Above is our latest rendering of the Gallardo successor, which is based on the renderings that we have seen to date. With all of the camouflage on the prototype, it is hard to make out what the new Lambo will look like, so we went with out guy and we seem to have gotten it pretty close. We seem to have the front apron done correctly, with its large, angular intakes and pointed nose, but we may be off the mark a little on the rear air intakes.
