Unfortunately, the Lamborghini Murciélago can't last forever. Despite producing a number of special versions to keep it fresh, including the LP640, LP 650-4 Roadster and LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, Lamborghini will eventually replace its most super of supercars.
Our spy photographers have caught up with Lamborghini engineers testing what could be the Murciélago's replacement in Scandinavia. Rumored to revive the "Jota" nameplate, this new car appears to be similar in size to the Murciélago. We're told to expect a new direct-inject V12 engine producing around 700 horsepower and a lighter overall weight thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum. All-wheel-drive is a given, though this time around Lamborghini may use a new system developed in conjunction with Haldex. As for what it look like, expect inspiration to come from the Reventón, another Lambo based on the Murciélago.
