Report: Three New Lambos In The Pipeline, Including ‘Cabrera’ Gallardo Replacement

Follow Viknesh



Lamborghini is still celebrating the debut of its stunning new Aventador LP700-4, which replaces the ageing Murcielago as the marque’s flagship and is already sold out for the next 12 months. However, there are already whispers in the air about Lamborghini’s future model releases including the all-important replacement for the Gallardo.

According to a speculative report, earlier word that last year’s Sesto Elemento concept is set to enter production will prove true. Based around the Gallardo LP570-4 platform, the carbon fiber intensive Sesto Elemento is expected to be built as dedicated track car in a limited run of just 25 examples.

The only major difference between it and the production Gallardo on which it’s based is that it is constructed from a new material called forged carbon, which helps keep its weight down to less than 2,200 pounds. Not surprisingly, Lamborghini describes the concept as the future of the supercar and that elements from it will appear in most of the automaker's new products.

The Sesto Elemento dedicated track car is rumored for a debut next year, alongside an almost certain Aventador LP700-4 Roadster. Like the current Murcielago Roadster, the new open-top Aventador should feature a manually removable roof, most likely constructed from carbon fiber.

Beyond the production Sesto Elemento and Aventador LP700-4 Roadster, Lamborghini is thought to be readying its eventual replacement for the Gallardo, which is expected to go by the name Cabrera and arrive in 2013.

Like most Lamborghini model names, Cabrera is derived from the name of a legendary Spanish fighting bull. Powering the car is likely to be a brand new V-10 engine developing 570 horsepower and sharing the Aventador’s ISR automated manual transmission

It will likely be followed in 2014 by a Cabrera Spyder, complete with an automated folding soft-top just like the Gallardo Spyder.

  1. The Aventador is truly a design worthy of carrying the name Lamborghini. The Elemento is another very nice design but IMO, the Estoque needs to be studied and totally redesign to make it as aggressive. Otherwise, it still looks boring like the Murci and the Gallardo.

  2. The Murci and Gallardo look boring!? I mean are we talking about the same cars here? Have you ever seen one in person? They are amazing! Ever heard one start up? Definitely not boring.

  3. Can I just say that the front of this new Lambo LP700-4 is one of the most beautifully designed and aggressive fronts end ever. The side profile continues this theme very well. But when it get around to designing the rear, its almost as if the Italians had finally hit the vinegar strokes moment early, after the front and side profile and could do nothing more than connect the lines. It may be nitpicking but it is still a design flaw imho. Let the hate begin

  4. I really hope when the Sesto Elemento goes into production that they keep every single detail from the concept intact, it's just magnificently brutal.. and also will be one of the few Lamborghini cars to break their code of being given a fighting bull name. One last bit - please build the Estoque 4dr. exoticar.
