Lamborghini Gallardo: Successor coming to Frankfurt Motor Show

Lamborghini Gallardo

The successor of the Lamborghini Gallardo is said to arrive at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

While nothing is set in stone, the word is that Lamborghini is still considering “Cabrera” as the Gallardo-successor’s name. We didn’t know the company had so many Tigers fans, but the Autoblog Detroit office is stoked.

The same report tells us that the new Lamborghini, currently going by the internal designation LP724, will be based on the same platform as the second-generation Audi R8, rather than on the more exotic Aventador underpinnings. That means a modular spaceframe, aluminum and carbon fiber construction and a reduction in curb weight as a result – the target is less than 3,300 pounds. Even with the diet, the next Gallardo will be slightly longer than the current car, but about the same height and width.
