Not sure of how the Jota would actually look in real time. As of now the doesn't grow on me and will take time. Perhaps when we stop seeing the famed Murcielagos' and Gallardos' that's when the Jota might kick in.

The current spec looks a mix 'n match of the old and new. Blast from the past with a reworked body frame!

The rims on that camouflaged car (Jota) looks suspiciously like the Superleggera rims on the the Gallardo. Why would they be using the rims from a lower car on their top of the line replacement? Beats me!

They all look the same now to me! Except for the names, you really need to strain your eyes to spot differences visually. A scoop here, a line there....

I think this looks just like another lambo, Loved all the Murcielagos' and Gallardos', Jota with 6.5L and 700 horses at work, Should expect some real magic, Have to wait and watch till the launch.

Even I agree that this looks so much like the LP640/560. They make subtle changes to the exterior and add more HP to the engine and voila, we have a LP640 killer.

OT: Last evening was watching the NGC where in Great Factory they were showing how they assemble the Lambo and alloy wheels come specially from US which is sole manafacturer to make the lightest wheels in the world.

How an Audi R8 is made is going to be telecasted on Thursday, i think.

Usually manufacturers while testing their cars use bits and pieces of current production cars to mask the lines.So this Jota caught testing is far away from the how the final version will look like.

I definitely don't think so.I personally feel that the Lamborghini designers are getting better with every with each of their cars outperforming the previous ones in both performance and design. Totally love the current generation of the bulls. Hope they come out with something really really outrageous like they did with the 670.

The national geographic channel's megafactory was great show. it showed the starting till the end of the production line of Murcielago. The engine manufacturing, assembling, testing. The motorized air flap was great. The rims are made of solid aluminium with the holes etched out.

The fun part was that the drivers said it is easy to reverse the car since they have full view of the back if they open the door .

I hope this is not off topic.

Slight correction, Chipz...it showed a Murci SV.

The episode gave me goosebumps!! The highlight was the installation of the monster power-train under the supervision of a lady.

Just look at the rake of the front windshield! Its almost horizontal.Somehow the overall shape reminds me of the epic Jaguar XJ220,albeit a bit more sharpened!
