    PARIS MOTOR SHOW: Lamborghini To Unveil TWO Cars.

    You know how Lamborghini has been releasing teaser photos of its newest model online, before the car’s Paris Motor Show debut? Well, it looks like the car maker may be bringing two vehicles to market. U.S. Lamborghini dealers are scheduled to head to Sant’Agata next Thursday for a very special presentation—their first look at two different cars. According to the copy of the schedule we obtained, the company will unveil a car known as the “LB715-5″ along with something called the “83X.”

    According to our source, the LB715-5 refers to the new V12-powered model designated to replace the Murcielago, colloquially known as the Jota. Details are still scarce at this point, but we know the car will use a direct-injection V12 and a carbon-fiber tub reportedly made by Carbo Tech of Austria, the same folks who build the tub for the McLaren MP4-12C. The “715″ may refer to the expected horsepower output of the car; we’ve also heard that an 825 horsepower version may be coming at some point. The LB715-5 will be priced somewhere around the half-million dollar mark, making it a good deal pricier than the current Murcielago, which starts at $354,000.

    As for the 83X mentioned in the agenda (see below)…well, nobody outside Sant’Agata seems to know what it will be. Popular rumor has it the car may be a Gallardo successor; however, there’s also speculation it could be a production version of the Estoque sedan, or even a GT car destined to butt heads with the Ferrari 599 GTB/GTO. But nobody knows for sure—not even our well-connected sources.

    Either way, given the simultaneous unveiling for dealers on September 23rd, odds seem promising Lamborghini will be unveiling both cars to the public at the Paris Motor Show. (A double reveal could also explain why Lamborghini released a teaser image of a ten-cylinder engine when everyone was expecting just to see pictures of the new V12-powered model.) Given Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann’s August statement that a sedan would slot nicely into the company’s lineup, a production Estoque seems a strong possibility; however, the Gallardo is seven years old at this point, so a replacement for that car wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility either. (Keep in mind, Ferrari has gone through the 360 Modena, F430 and the 458 Italia in the time the Gallardo has been in production.) Hopefully we’ll have all the answers we crave after Lamborghini’s press conference at the Paris Motor Show…

    Re: PARIS MOTOR SHOW: Lamborghini To Unveil TWO Cars.

     So what would the last 5 in the LB 715-5 denote? 5WD? :P

    As for the Ferrari comparisson... the Gallardo was always behind the rivalling Ferrari, thus they should keep quiet!

     5 denotes the hatch. Baby seat space under the bonnet.

    Remember when Lambo's just had one name instead of an alphabet soup?

    Ahh, those were the days!
    They must have been thinking: Porsche 911, Ferrari F430, McLaren MP4-12C-Q/i#5, Aston Martin DB9... hell, let's add some numbers to our car's names!

    And then, they went overboard with it, just like with everything else they do... SmileySmiley

    Re: PARIS MOTOR SHOW: Lamborghini To Unveil TWO Cars.

    It was a stupid marketing research that started all this nonsense.  The research found that people remember car names better when there are numbers next to the alphabet. 

    Stop all this marketing bullshit and focus on making a better car. 


    Re: PARIS MOTOR SHOW: Lamborghini To Unveil TWO Cars.

    +1  besides the name Jota just sucks, with or without numbers behind it lol

     Well it could be an expression in south Am, but I've never heard it being used like that.

    Re: PARIS MOTOR SHOW: Lamborghini To Unveil TWO Cars.

    Re: PARIS MOTOR SHOW: Lamborghini To Unveil TWO Cars.

    Lamborghini Sesto Elemento concept may be the tease of Paris
    Is this the concept car that Lamborghini has been teasing us in such an achingly slow manner leading up to this week's Paris Motor Show? All signs point to yes, but it's still too early to know for sure. In any case, the Sesto Elemento – if it is indeed the next Lambo to be hung on the walls of teenage boys from Constantinople to Timbuktu – will push forward with the jet-fighter-ish angular styling theme set in motion by the limited production Reventon from the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show... for better or for worse.

    As expected, the Sesto Elemento (which translated to English means Sixth Element – we'd expect some sort of Bullish name if it hits production) is crafted almost exclusively from carbon fiber. That means it's light... as in just 2,200 pounds (999 kilograms) light. That's seriously low for a V10-powered supercar, and it means an estimated 0 to 62 (100 kilometers per hour) run of just 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 217.5 miles per hour (350 kph).

     +2,  is this the actual car or an artist rendering based on the teasers?


    Re: PARIS MOTOR SHOW: Lamborghini To Unveil TWO Cars.

    I really don't like that "new" Lamborghini design.

    This extreme styling with its sharp edges is not my cup of tea. Orginal design of the Murciélago and the Gallardo were really nice, but now? Reventón is alright, since it looks all of a piece, but these aftermarket-spoilers at the Superleggeras and now this concept car just look stupid.
