Lamborghini Reventón – Click above for a high-res image gallery

If you've been waiting for Lamborghini to replace the aging Murcielago and were disappointed by recent reports that its successor may not arrive until 2012, the mavens over at Autogespot may have some good news for you.

While the Murci may stay on for another few years, word has it that Lamborghini is working on another model, apparently to run in parallel. The reports suggest that the new model, tentatively dubbed Jota (after the label previously used on special Miuras and Diablos of yore), will use the Murcielago's V12, albeit packaged in a shorter wheelbase with an even wider track and lightweight materials.

Any truth to the rumors? It's hard to tell, but in the meantime, Sant'Agata is said to be working on a Reventón Roadster to follow up on the limited-edition fighter jet-inspired supercar.

      Kinda funny hearing that work of art referred to as the "aging Murcielago!"

      I'm sure few of these will make their way south of the border, but someone might want to tell them that "jota" is Mexican slang for "homosexual."

        It'll happen. Mitsubishi sold the Pajero as the Montero or Shogun in North America and Spain as "Pajero" is dirty slang for [insert organ that will make most people giggle here].
        Anyway, when I first read "Jota", I thought it said "Jetta", which wouldn't be surprising considering VWAG owns Lamborghini. That said, a V12 Jetta? After the W8 Passat? In any case, it would be a ridiculously good performer (and probably an equally bad seller, given the past high-performance vehicles from VW on economy car nameplates).

      Lamborghini never takes a break. That is a good thing, though.
