Here’s the latest intel about the next-generation Lamborghini Gallardo. A must read!
First, Winkelmann stated that the car will make “a clear cut” from the Gallardo, especially visually. “We always say that design is not an evolution but a revolution, and this will be the philosophy of the follow-up to the Gallardo.” We’d guess that the car will take on more of the menacing angularity of the Aventador flagship, although don’t expect it to adopt its sibling’s carbon-fiber-intensive construction. (Winkelmann: “What we have done for Aventador is not necessarily the right thing to do for a different car.”) This will help keep pricing where the merely rich—as opposed to the hyper-wealthy—can afford the car.
The next entry-level Lambo will ride on the VW Group’s modular sports-car architecture (a.k.a. MSS), which also will underpin the next Audi R8, as well as future Porsches.
