Not sure how I missed this until now.

It's only random guesswork out there on the interwebs at the moment, as you can imagine it's likely to be similar spec to the Gallardo, but with some oomph and lightness thrown at it, with some new bodywork dents.

http://www.google.com/search?q=lamborghini+cabrera :doh: :p

I didn't bother with a link as none of the reports I saw say anything more than I did - oh except some mention supercharger.

In the mean time let's just speculate, and post up concept art. :)

Report: Three New Lambos In The Pipeline, Including ‘Cabrera’ Gallardo Replacement

By Viknesh Vijayenthiran

Lamborghini is still celebrating the debut of its stunning new Aventador LP700-4, which replaces the ageing Murcielago as the marque’s flagship and is already sold out for the next 12 months. However, there are already whispers in the air about Lamborghini’s future model releases including the all-important replacement for the Gallardo.

According to a speculative report, earlier word that last year’s Sesto Elemento concept is set to enter production will prove true. Based around the Gallardo LP570-4 platform, the carbon fiber intensive Sesto Elemento is expected to be built as dedicated track car in a limited run of just 25 examples.

The only major difference between it and the production Gallardo on which it’s based is that it is constructed from a new material called forged carbon, which helps keep its weight down to less than 2,200 pounds. Not surprisingly, Lamborghini describes the concept as the future of the supercar and that elements from it will appear in most of the automaker's new products.

The Sesto Elemento dedicated track car is rumored for a debut next year, alongside an almost certain Aventador LP700-4 Roadster. Like the current Murcielago Roadster, the new open-top Aventador should feature a manually removable roof, most likely constructed from carbon fiber.

Beyond the production Sesto Elemento and Aventador LP700-4 Roadster, Lamborghini is thought to be readying its eventual replacement for the Gallardo, which is expected to go by the name Cabrera and arrive in 2013.

Like most Lamborghini model names, Cabrera is derived from the name of a legendary Spanish fighting bull. Powering the car is likely to be a brand new V-10 engine developing 570 horsepower and sharing the Aventador’s ISR automated manual transmission.

It will likely be followed in 2014 by a Cabrera Spyder, complete with an automated folding soft-top just like the Gallardo Spyder.

Either way - there's a replacement coming, so we can still shoot the shit about it until there's official word.

Lamborghini Gallardo Replacement Will Not Offer Manual Gearbox

by Justin Berkowitz

The replacement for the Lamborghini Gallardo, which should arrive in the next two years, will not offer a traditional manual transmission, the company’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann told us at the Frankfurt auto show. The company’s recently launched Aventador supercar is sold only with a seven-speed single-clutch automated manual and the Gallardo’s successor will feature a similar system—if not a variant of the very same transmission. If it does get a unique gearbox, it’s still unclear whether the replacement for the Gallardo will use a single- or dual-clutch trans. We’d put our money on a single-clutch, as Lamborghini claims that one benefit of the Aventador’s ISR (for Independent Shifting Rods) transmission having just one clutch is that it is 26 pounds lighter than a dual-clutch unit.

According to Winkelmann, Lamborghini hasn’t delivered a manual-equipped Gallardo in more than a year. “If we receive an order for a manual Gallardo now, I would want to see that order on my desk,” he says, jokingly. “I’d have to make sure it wasn’t a mistake.” As far back as seven years ago, only about 15 percent of Gallardos were sold with regular ol’ stick shifts.

Ferrari has ceased offering manual gearboxes in any of its products, and McLaren’s new MP4-12C also puts power to the ground through a self-shifting transmission. Looks like we need more Save the Manuals! operatives in the halls of super-exotica.
