Lamborghini "Jota" teaser – Click above for high-res image

Devastatingly fast as it is – particularly in the latest SuperVeloce form – the Lamborghini Murcielago is getting a little long in the tooth. Its successor has been spied undergoing testing time and time again, and now Sant'Agata has graced us (or perplexed us, depending on your perspective) with this solitary teaser image.

Now we've seen some cryptic teasers in our time, but this one has to take the cake. That the Murcielago's successor will have a hood of some sort, bear the Raging Bull emblem and is "Coming soon" serve as no great surprises. The rest is a matter of speculation, but we're expecting the exotic to be built largely from carbon fiber (replacing the archaic steel chassis on the outgoing Murci) and be shorter in length than its predecessor.

Sources also predict a fresh take on the classic Lambo scissor doors – possibly moving out before swinging up, sort of like a Koenigsegg – helping trim weight below the 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) mark. That could translate to a sub-3-second 0-60 sprint and a top end breeching 370 km/h (230 mph).

The Murcielago replacement – tentatively dubbed Jota – is expected to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this fall. Dealers and VIP customers, however, could get a sneak peek as soon as next month, so stay tuned for leaks.

      This is far from the other terrible Photoshop jobs I've seen car makers officially release, but why is it the auto industry is full of such... "uninspiring" Photoshoppers?

      You guys are missing the point, at least we know the car is going to sport the Lamborghini badge and is available in black.
      • 4 Years Ago
      OK, whoever has Photoshop CS5, use content aware to get the rest of the pic.

      You guys sure it ain't a picture of Asus Lambo's laptop? It sure looks like it.

      Just a note to anyone waiting for a replacement for their Murcielago. If you can't find a decent place for your now long in the tooth Murcielago, I'll be glad to take it off your hands. It's okay, I can deal with the old styling.

      Ugh what a tease.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Should be epic, hopefully we will see it this fall.
      • 4 Years Ago
      How much more black could it be?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Needs less black.

      Worst. Teaser. Evar.



      Boooo.

        From the folks who brought to you the Countach, Miura and Murcielago now brings to you a black hood w/a nice wax job and a badge!

        Seriously though, you can easily make that image from scratch on PS, so I wouldn't count it as a "photo".

      Would have been more exciting to hear a teaser clip of the engine than this picture.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Yeah, this pretty much gets filed under 'let me know when you have a picture worth caring about.'
