Lamborghini is back with a new video teasing its supercar destined to replace the Gallardo, which recently ceased production. Expected to be called the Cabrera or Huracan or perhaps something else entirely, the new supercar should be revealed soon as suggested by the title of the latest teaser video, Getting Closer.
The video is the third from Lamborghini’s strange Hexagon Project marketing campaign. The first tease was of the sound of the new car’s exhaust note, which isn’t an unusual teaser for the type of high-performance cars you expect from a brand like Lamborghini.
But then the Hexagon Project became a series of pointless videos featuring three annoying lads from the U.K. who travel to the Lamborghini factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese to get an unauthorized look at the car. The first video saw the lads reach their destination, the second saw them sneak into the building and this third one has them reach the production floor. Unfortunately, we still don’t get a glimpse of the car.
Lamborghini’s new supercar, which will compete against the likes of the McLaren 12C and Ferrari 458 Italia, will use a revised version of the Gallardo’s chassis and engine, most likely in combination with a dual-clutch transmission instead of the previous e-gear automated manual.
As with the Gallardo, all-wheel drive will be standard, but Lamborghini may release certain rear-wheel-drive models in the future.
Peak output should come in at 600 metric horsepower, meaning a 592-horsepower rating here in the U.S.
