Following recent spyshots of the upcoming replacement to the Lamborghini Gallardo, currently dubbed the Lamborghini Cabrera, the car has been spotted testing on the Nurburgring for the very first time!
This particular 2015 Lamborghini Cabrera was sporting the least amount of camouflage we’ve seen so far and the above image shows an all-new headlight design. What’s immediately apparent about the the Lamborghini Cabrera is that it’s headlights are larger to those on the Gallardo and feature a unique LED double ‘VV’ shape.
Previous spyshots demonstrated that the Lamborghini Cabrera will also feature a significantly redesigned rear end incorporating an all-new engine bay cover.
Under the hood, the Lamborghini Cabrera will feature a similar 5.2-liter V10 engine as the outgoing Gallardo. However, power is expected to be lifted towards the 600hp mark.
Arguably most significantly however, the 2015 Lamborghini Cabrera is expected to feature an all-new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission indicating that Lamborghini has finally succumbed to the pressure and won’t release the Cabrera with a similar ISR transmission to the range-topping Lamborghini Aventador.
It’s most likely that the 2015 Lamborghini Cabrera will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2014 in early March next year. Also as expected, the 2015 Lamborghini Cabrera will likely share many technical features with the upcoming second generation Audi R8 which will hit the market after the Cabrera.
