New 2011 Murcielago details and a teaser have been revealed. The information comes from an official Teamspeed insider. The person indicated that the presentation of the Murcielago successor to the dealers and VIP customers will take place in July. All official specs and the official name will also be revealed in July to the dealers. Official public launch is supposed to happen at Paris auto show this fall.
There are no new rumors about specs, everything being repeated once and again. Carbon fiber chassis, probably monocell, like the MP4-12C but a bit different. New direct-injection V12 producing up to 700hp or even slightly more with 0-100km/h rumored to be around 3.0 seconds and a top speed around 370km/h.
Body will feature some style clues from Reventon, but it will be all-new concept with clear Lamborghini DNA. Car will be shorter than the current Murcielago. The traditional scissor doors are sacrificed to lower the weight, which is rumored to be below 1500kg. The doors will open in a bit different way, to the side first and only then go up. The 2011 Lamborghini Murcielago Successor has new 21 inch wheels and upgraded Brembo carbon-ceramic brake system.
The price will be around the current LP640 price tag.
I just hope it will be a rwd version of the car with proper manual transmition.
Everyone knows that there wont be a version with manual transmition…
No scissor doors….:((
so…it’ll have the same doors as a koenigsegg?:)
so wheres the teaser?
No it will not have the same doors as a koenigsegg it will have the scissor doors they just wont go directly up like the current model. Instead the will open sideways first and you can enter the car like that or you can continue to pull the doors up into the scissor position. A manual would be nice but a RWD would just be embarrasing for a Lamborghini.
Oh no that sounds like LSD doors to me… Don’t think that will happen because LSD doors are for ricers!
I believe it will be a great car because it is a Lamborhini but it is sad that the Murcielago will stop being produced.I believe it was the last true supercar, pure racing machine without the electronic gizmos and the bling blings.Yes there is now the Koenigsegg, the Pagani, Bugatti etc. but they dont have the real supercar heart as the Ferrari Daytona,Lamborghini Miura, Porsche 911, Mercedes SLR(60’s) and others.
i dont like that kind of doors….its just not Lamborghini,it will bi like cheap aftermarket tuning doors,like people putting on Opel Astras and etc…
Did someone seriously mention the Murcielago in the same breath as a 911? As far as it being a true no compromise race car without “the bling blings”, are you at all familiar with the Murcielago? It is ALL about the show factor. The chassis is actually quite primitive and has virtually no race inspired technology. It is quite simply an opera on wheels.
Lamborghini has said they will phase out the manuals, but no word as to when it will be done. They also said they were going to deprioritize top speed and I see 370kph here. Not sure how they’re going to gain an extra 30-40kph with just 30 more HP than the LP670SV. Word is the car will have a 7L V12 (before the rumor was a 6.0L) and it will obviously use direct injection. That would give it “only” 100HP/L which is pretty conservative. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was closer to 750HP, which would be a big enough jump to ensure it’s success. The chassis would definitely have to be more refined (and forgiving, as the old chassis just wanted to kill you at the limit) to handle that.
Thats the teaser to keep you guessing what its going to look like and I cant wait to see it!!!370kph thats about 230mph right??
i got to see pic of the Lambo spyjota with its doors open and they open the same way all the lambos open straight up unless this modle is a murci with plastic and ducttape and under that stuff its all the same. I just might have the new 7.0 liter engine to do its test runs …Well i guess we all have to wait and see ..Lamborghini is sure driving us all nuts over what these cars are finally going to look like LOL
