We have stumbled upon brand new spy shots of the slated “Lamborghini Jota”, successor of the Lamborghini Murcielago. A must see!
Styled in-house at the firm’s headquarters in Sant’Agata, Italy, the newcomer will be the first production model to be penned by design and brand director Manfred Fitzgerald. While under its skin, Lambo’s latest venture will get a new carbon fibre chassis, helping bring its weight down from 1,665kg to 1,500kg.
Power will be drastically increased too, with a new 7.0-litre V12 engine expected to produce in excess of 700bhp and 700Nm of torque. As a result the Murcielago-successor will able to clock a top speed of around 220mph and 0-62mph will take only 3.0 seconds.
However, fuel economy is also due to increase to around 23mpg, with CO2 falling from 495g/km to roughly 425g/km, thanks to a clever cylinder deactivation system, which operates under light loads.
