Recently a rather special Lamborghini Murciélago was spotted during testing on the German Nurnburg Ring, this car featured black body parts like the doors and engine cover and also a rather imposing rear wing.
In a recent interview, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann stated that Automobili Lamborghini SpA will be introducing a new model, or an evolution of an existing model, every year, so people started fantasizing about what could be next, and it came down to two possibilities, either a Gallardo Superleggera Spyder or a Murciélago Superleggera ... and judging by the recent spy shots, an educated guess would be that the flagship V12 will be loosing weight in the near future.
So what could a Murciélago Superleggera look like, probably something along the lines of the current lightweight Gallardo, so using Carbon Fiber rear view mirrors, some lighter body parts, a new rear wing perhaps, the door trim replaced by Carbon Fiber too ... all to make the V12 put less weight on the scales, probably even a small power increase could be found in the already mighty engine, but I wouldn't expect too much from this, the Gallardo only gained about 30 Bhp too, but combined with the loss of weight it could create a totally different car altogether.
As with the Gallardo Superleggera, I don't expect them to revert to rear wheel drive only on the Murciélago, would be fun, but with close to let's say 700 Bhp it could become dangerously fast for some drivers, sure a professional pilot will be able to master 700 Bhp on the rear wheels only, but for every day practicality the well proven four wheel drive system is surely a better option.
When and how much you might ask ? Well nothing is official yet, so we could be in for a long wait ... or perhaps the IAA at Frankfurt from 13 to 23 September 2007 could already show us something new from the house of the Raging Bull ... we'l have to wait and see ...
The 2015 edition of the famous Techno Classica event in Essen, Germany shows a $10,000,000 Lamborghini ... along with nearly 30 other Bulls.
