Lamborghini Murcielago: Successor not coming before 2012

Lamborghini Murcielago
The successor of the Lamborghini Murcielago will not arrive before 2012.

When it does come along, though, Auto Motor und Sport says we can expect the new flagship Lambo to ditch the Murci’s outmoded steel chassis in favor of an aluminum one – likely based on the Audi R8’s. Draped in aluminum and carbon fiber, the chassis will, in all likelihood, carry a revised version of the Bizzarrini-designed V12 that was the company’s first engine and which has, with considerable modification, carried on in the company’s supercars ever since. While the wheelbase is expected to carry over from the outgoing Murcielago, the front overhang is expected to shrink, while all-wheel-drive will continue to put the power down to the tarmac.
