Lamborghini Murciélago replacement spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

We won't necessarily argue with an automaker (especially Lamborghini) unwrapping its new hotness from the inside out. Recently, we received a photo of the Murciélago replacement's new pushrod suspension – something we were first discovered during our talks with the Lamborghini's CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. Now, our intrepid spy photographers have snapped Lamborghni's new flagship, tentatively dubbed Aventador, wearing nothing but swirly camouflage over its newly redesigned body.

The new Lamborghini's gorgeous bodywork takes many of its cues from the Sesto Elemento concept that debuted at the Paris Motor Show last year. Underneath the sexy exterior is the automaker's new V12 heart of gold, and we should see the finished product in the flesh at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March. In the meantime, continue the striptease for yourself in our high-res gallery below.

      Save for the lateral air intakes, it seems to be more of the same. It's like they've been revolving around the same car since the Gallardo appeared. The guys at VW and Sant'Agata Bolognese should let Bertone do the design. Bertone would certainly do much better - after all, they did the Miura and the Countach, didn't they?

      Looks to me like a bigger version of the Gallardo from the side.The front and rear took styling cues from the Sisto Elemento and Reventon. A real mishmosh.

      None of you chiming in cant afford it so why chime in lol.

      I"m glad to see a few rounded corners coming to Lambo's usually razor-sharp edges. I think it will be more elegantly brutal rather than just brutal. I'd love to see the Estoque given the green light too.

      Im pretty sure that that car is just a Murcielago with a weird paint job/cover and a modified exhaust.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I'm pretty sure this will be much better than a murcielago.

      Looks GREAT! Love the shape and proportions, i'm sure Lamborghini will not disappoint in the details.

      It seems like the automotive industry has hit sort of a brick wall in terms of design. You could easily identify a car from almost every decade in the past, but now it is getting increasingly difficult to do. Although this looks great, it doesn't look like something they couldn't have made 10 years ago. I've been noticing this trend with a lot of automakers, and i'm guessing safety, practicality, and cost have a lot to do with it.

        They save money and only style the headlights these days :/

      Sort of looks like any other lambo. But I guess there are only so many ways you can shape a wedge.

      Looks more like a Murciélago special edition then a new model..
      • 4 Years Ago
      afford this car ? who cares ..i am just enjoying this super car fiesta, it is about my childhood dream..huayra vs aventador vs noble m600 vs mclaren mp4-12c..hallelujah

      I thought they said it would have no resemblance to the Murc, yet what I'm seeing here is still the body of the Murc with a few design cue from the Reventon and the Gallardo.

      I got a funny feeling we all in for a disappointment just like with Pagani
        • 4 Years Ago
        The styling will be all new, but the general shape is still a Lamborghini styling trademark....the silhouette may not be too different, but this thing is going to be beautiful.
        • 4 Years Ago
        True but I would have like to have seen the sesto elemento, now that would have made a great replacement for the Murc.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's true...I'm sure the finished product will look a little more sharp than this though...that camo is killing all of its detail :( Geneva cannot come fast enough - time seems to be slowing down
      • 4 Years Ago
      Is it just me or does the camo make it MORE obvious as a new model. Without it I for one would go "Oh look, a Lambo" and forget all about it.
