What the image shows is a 2011 Lamborghini Murciélago mule on a testing run in Portugal. What the mule shows is a profile that looks like the remnants of a tryst between Miami Vice and Cannonball Run – a Testarossa-esque aspect with cheesegrater side strakes, to be specific. And that must mean that this is a Frankensteined body thrown together to confuse snappers, because there is no way the next Murci will have any such hindquarters... right?
Underneath whatever Reventón-inspired cues the super coupe ends up wearing, it is understood that the next Murci will secret a carbon fiber tub that replaces the current car's steel spaceframe. That bit of F1 tech will could bring the car in under 3,300 pounds. Shifting will be courtesy a sequential manual, the top speed beyond 200 miles per hour and the price beyond $300,000.

      +1, I was just saying the other day how I'd love to see the return of the NACA duct.

      God I hope not.
      I thought the Testarossa was one of Ferrari's low-points in automotive design.

      Who ever thought that bringing "style" back from the 80s was a GOOD thing?! Ugh. What an awful decade.

        HOTTUB TIME MACHINE!

        Couldn't disagree more. The bear-claw rakes were great, and the 80's rocked.

      so... why is it that the car has symptoms of super-grain, but the ground and mountains have none?

      did someone at Car forget how photography works?

      Hopefully this thing looks more like the Cizeta Moroder V16T:

      Marcello Gandini's original vision for the Diablo was purty sweet...

      As long as we're going retro, how about tail fins? Slap 1959 Caddy style fins on a modern supercar = extreme awesomeness.

      Grainy picture, but it should be a epic car.

      NACA duct.

      'nuff said.

      Linky no worky.

      Oh, that picture is of a lambo? I can barely tell that's a car, much less any distinctive features...zoom and enhance...zoom and enhance...

        It might help if the Car Mag watermark wasn't on top of the strakes in question... :/
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah, i could hardly identify the car let alone see side strakes in it.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Would LOVE to see the strakes, except they put that dumb water mark RIGHT ACROSS THEM.

      As a child of the 80's, I loved the Testarossa's strakes. It's just a shame that every mini-truck owner decided it'd be a good idea to paste them onto every Nissan, Mazda, etc. Effectively playing out the style.

      Testarossa's still on my list of cars to own before I die.
