Rumours suggest it could be named the Jota (pronounced with a 'y' sound for the 'J') or Aventador, it's set to feature Lamborghini's all new directly injected V12 engine - a 6.5-litre V12. Lamborghini says the new V12 produces a staggering 525kW and 690Nm of torque. The new engine will certainly give the Murcielago successor some added pep in its step.
Also likely to receive a substantial change is the 0-100km/h time. The new seven-speed gearbox uses ISR (Independent Shifting Rods), which allows shift times of up to 50% quicker than a conventional dual-clutch gearbox and 40% faster than Lamborghini's current e-gear system. The Jota will of course be all-wheel-drive.
Rumours surrounding lightweight panels are also circulating, paving the way for a reduction in the currently portly 1600kg+ kerb weight.
A release date (or even recognition by Lamborghini of the car's existence) is yet to be announced, but we're tipping on it being mid-late 2011.
Until the all-new Murcielago successor is released, we can only dream - and look at our Computer Generated Image, which points us to the styling direction of the all-new car.
