Looks like a R8 side grill.
Will it be in another colour like the R8?

That sucks. It screams Murcielago. It needs to look totally different, so it doesn't get confused with a previous model.
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

It would be nice to see something totally different. It does look too much like the existing shape, one could only hope that the production Jota will look different to this but I think I read somewhere that Lambo are taking what they call the "safe" option and not going for a total redesign.

It's a mule in the pic.  The final version will look different - that much is certain.

VW are good with their mules. The Veyron ran under a diablo body for a long time. I have faith that they will pull another one out of the bag, and if the reviews of the LP560 and SV are anything to go by, could be a good car.

I'm predicting a super-Gallardo with lots of Audi tech and some Veyron bits too.  Scissor doors are certain - see the front door's concave leading edge. I think pricing in Australia will be between the 640 and the SV.  It will be a huge step up from the Diablo/Murci platform.
