    Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Seems it's almost ready. This is the most revealing mule yet. Not super impressed by it based on these. Looks like a not-nearly-as-cool Aventador.

    Kreso, spill the beans from your Audi/Lambo sources!

     


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Yes, car is ready. Rumored track times are better then those of 991 Turbo S or MP4-12C.

    Official intro is Geneva 2014. Just... Web press intro will be probably earlier... When? Earliest early February 2014.

    I like what I can see so far. kiss

    Likewise, if it's anything like that, I'm a fan!

    Looks like a mini Aventador, very nice. kiss

    stunning, and not overly designed


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    I like it as well. Looking forward to the specs and times.


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Love it too

    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Loving it. I was afraid after seeing the Siesto and Veneno they could go mad and destroy this oportunity to make what could be the most beuatiful exotic on it´s class, seems they didn´t, car is looking amanzing.

    Will the new Audi R8 version be almost as fast?  Has the new platform lost much weight?  Seems that it must to beat the cars above...

    If these are close to the real product, there are a couple of interesting aspects to note.  First, if the rear panel is as opaque as it appears in the drawings, is one to suppose that a rearview mirror camera system, similar to that found on Audi's R18 etron will be present?  Second, again, from the rearward sketch, no retractable wing is apparent, is one to once again suppose, that Lamborghini is banking on Audi's aerodynamic expertise and will use a highly development underbody aerodynamic package including the nearly visible diffuser?  


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    The yellow renderings are really amazing. From my point of view, this is the first time when a Lambo looks clearly better than its Ferrari counterpart. Lets hope that the final car will not differ too much from that.

    Let's hope they can make it drive as well as a Porsche too. 


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Hmm, guess I'm the only one. Looks to similar in shape to the old Gallardo. Was hoping for a radical redesign a la 430 to 458.


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Looks like a mini Aventador which is not a bad thing of course. Normal aspirated V10 600PS with DCT gearbox would be brilliant!


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    I believe the major criticism of the Gallardo was the wooden steering feel. Hopefully this car fixes that weakness because the NA V10 engine is the most compelling in its class imho.

    Changing from hydraulic to electric steering is unlikely to improve things (or even prevent worsening), but anything is possible.  When I drove the R8 V10, I thought the steering was decent, but unremarkable.  I assume it's very similar.

    Grant,

    New platform is lighter overall. Also, difference in wheels base will be much smaller between Cabrera and new R8.

    Engine is further development of 5.2L V10(but, a in-depth development). Gearbox 7 speed DCT. Both cars will be much lighter in total weight.


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    I heard a rumor that the new Audi R8 will have only one engine option, a 600 hp N/A engine. Any truth to that? It is hard to believe.

    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Yes, it seems to be the case.

    New R8 will be positioned as 991 Turbo S mid engine alternative. "Cabrera" will be positioned above them, price and performance wise.


    Re: Gallardo replacement soon to be revealed

    Next gen R8 info from LA show...  Dropping 110-130 lbs...  Still just speculation on 2 engines...
