    Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera? Not.

    The new Gallardo will be named Cabrera.

    Introduction 2013...570 hp V10 engine...bigger than current  Gallardo but slightly lighter...Spyder with electr. retractable hardtop.

    Superleggera planned with 595 hp, maybe 600 hp flat, 150 kg lighter.

    Last Gallardo model will be the LP 550-2 Spyder, which should show up 2011.

    Update: Apparently this was some sort of joke published in an auto forum and carried along through the internet, including serious news resources, which is kind of pathetic.

    Unfortunately it is going to stay a dream, I can't afford a Lamborghini for various reasons. Smiley

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    So the Volkswagen Group will have a Cabrera and a Carrera sportscar in the near future.

    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    BTW, next R8 is approved by Audi HQ. Will use same platform as Cabrera. Same engine with "only" 550ps. Next R8 will be also marginally bigger then current one(more or less same dimensions as MP4-12C). Same new AWD from Aventador(also for Cabrera).

    Gearbox? Graziano based DCT for sure for R8.

    Performance? Cabrera as good as MP4-12C. Next R8 as good as 458 Italia. This is written in internal docs.


    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    Some very hot cars are coming in near future

    The new R8 and Cabrera are promising.

    Nice the new R8 will probably compete with the new BMW i8 so expect it to look similar to this...

    This is pure fantasy.

    It was all made up by a ferrarichat member.  Then some autoblogs took it over, then even insideline and AMS.

    http://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/news/lamborghini-zukunft-bis-2021-gallardo-wird-zu-cabrera-estoque-kommt-2014-3555474.html

    The guy that made it all up is having a good laugh.  Smiley

    I think it's pretty funny that my for-fun speculation has gone this far...

    ^^^Looks like he is having quite the pisser.


    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    I actually got this "news" from a press newsletter from an agency with car news.

    Just checked and Auto, Motor und Sport has the same (of course much more in detail) "news".

    Here's the question now: How the heck is it possible that this "news" gets passed on by so called "serious" news sources. This actually proves, again, that the internet can't be trusted.

    Sorry, guys...next time I'm going to check the information before I post it but since this wasn't Porsche news, well...difficult.

    Well it's ok, on the internet everyone has a voice.... This is especially true with rumors and whatnot. You provide the most awesome rumors anyways so don't sweat it!

    True but I don't invent them. It would bite me in the a.. sooner or later. Smiley

    This apparently was supposed to be a joke but it got out of control.

    Which reminds me a little bit of the current radiation discussion: Yesterday and today experts in Europe told the media that radioactive particles from Japan have reached Europe.

    After this sensational message, they added:...it is however below the natural radiation values, so it may be normal. Smiley

    C'mon...seriously?!

    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    Hmm... Did you read Rupert Stadler interview in latest Auto Zeitung? So, he was also lying when he mentioned next gen Gallardo/R8 as cars that will be made for sure? Hmm...

    Did he mention the "Cabrera"? Smiley

    The "joke" was published between March 13th and March 16th.

    I checked with Google, first appearance of the name "Cabrera" seems to be March 17th. Smiley

    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    No, he did not mentioned "Cabrera". BUT, he mentioned next gen Gallardo and R8 as done deal. BTW, did you saw special R8 NF technology car?

    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    LoooooL@ Cabrera

    The D-bag that came up with that name is funny.

     

    Kreso,

    Of course they gonna build the newer gen of the Gallardo an R8. Even if both companies didn't announce it yet, we all know it will happen.

    Re: Goodbye Gallardo...Hello Cabrera

    Today I had a patient who wanted iodine tablets from me...against radiation. I told him that he needs special 65 mg tablets which are only dispensed by the state health authorities in a case of emergency. He was so upset that I didn't want to give him the tablets(I don't even have them ) that he started yelling and swearing that he'll never do business with me again. This is the first time I asked a patient to leave...a real shame.

    You should have given him sedatives instead of iodine pills. This way he would have calmed down, think he was proteced against iodine 131 and everybody else would be happy. Smiley

    I once told an immigration officer in the US(airport) that I'm a certified drug dealer(he asked about my occupation) and this wasn't a good idea at all. It took me some explaining to calm him down and I think it was not random that US customs asked us to open our luggage when we wanted to exit the airport after the baggage pickup. Now I always keep my mouth shut. Smiley Smiley

    I'm sure you didn't use this term in good faith, because you were lost in the translation. You intended to make some fun out of the situation Smiley  The next person you did the same ended up in jail Smiley
