Look what i found





This one ^^ looks more like a stretched and lowered Murcielago meets ford GT kinds. I hope they do the green one.

The also say its gonna be made to compete with the Ferrari Enzo. Will Lambo do it this time around?

Also, anyone read any place else about what the door mechanism on this one would be like? The traditional Lamborghini Scissor doors or will they just do the usual Miura doors?

Cheers!!!

I dont think Miura should try and compete with Enzo.

It should ideally be a car with no electronic aids and a slightly detuned version of the Murcielago's V12(so that the Murcie remains the flagship model).
It should be a wild pared out kinda car which harks back to the old supercars without having their lack of reliability and comfort.

wow the green car as the Miura should be made by Lambo priced below the Murci and above the gallardo....meanwhile the Autobild car, the silver one ,should be made to eat the ENZO fast and loud..

Guys i think you should read the text in this image.


Makes me feel that if that happens, it would make Ferrari Engg start work on a new project pretty soon. But none the less i wanna see my all time favourite car come back to life and beat the hell outta the other cars out there. I guess credit should be given to the Veyron that mad mad car, that showed to the world that a 1000bhp car dream can be turned into a reality. A new (Horsepower) war has begun that will be fought using the best and the most powerfull horses!

Cheers to better times ahead!

I think I had supplied this news a long time back about some of the lambo cars in 06..but this shots you have got are disappointing..they tried to do it like GT40, but GT40 was designed much better than this..here I am not feeling it..I was having a lot of hopes for this car..oh well..

From the Reuters article: "Lamborghini, which sells 40 percent of its supercharged sports cars in the United States...The car, which reaches a top speed of 193 miles per hour (314 kph) starts near $190,000 and runs up to near $330,000 for the V12 model."

Since when did Lamborghini make supercharged cars?! And is the Gallardo a v12?!

I guess they mean the range. And no, no artificially aspirated cars have ever been made by Lambo.

Gallardo is a V10, no clue on the new Gallardo, whatever they call it but yeah they are planning a Super-Murcielago said to develop 1000bhp which will compete with the Bugatti Veyron in the bhp race.

Smile Automobili Lamborghini brings back Lamborghini Miura

Italian carmaker Automobili Lamborghini brings back one of the most iconic names in automotive history, the Lamborghini Miura. The new Miura Concept is a tribute to the original Miura, which was first unveiled 40 years ago. The Miura boasts a long list of celebrity owners, from Jay Leno to Frank Sinatra. This Miura concept is a design study only, and there are currently no plans to put it into production

So finally lambo gets something to beat the Enzo eh!

Lamborghini is an underdog to ferrari and hence my choice of super car along with maserati.

Thats what im taking about when i say design cues that line up with the new bulls, although this looks more like it would be placed against the 612 than be the new miura...?
