Lamborghini Jota: New spy shots of Murcielago successor

Lamborghini Jota
We found some new spy shots of the Lamborghini Jota, successor of the Lamborghini Murcielago, coming in 2010.

For a start that name will change, possibly to Jota but that’s not confirmed. We know the all-new car will ditch the LP640’s steel chassis in favour of a carbonfibre tub with front and rear steel subframes.

That carbonfibre construction should help cut weight, while the new car will grow in size. Check out the front and rear wheels, which are barely able to squeeze under the Murcielago’s existing bodywork – today’s car wears paltry 18-inch rear rims.

The bigger rubber, combined with a sophisticated electronics system (replacing the LP640’s rudimentary set-up) will help keep the 700bhp V12 in check. Expect a 6.0-litre displacement for the all-new powerplant.
