Lamborghini Jota Prototype Spied at the Nürburgring

The Lamborghini Jota prototype was spotted on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife Today.

The Carbon and Aluminium spaceframe underpins this Italian thouroughbred resulting in a lighter more agile chassis and lower ride height than the current Murcielago.

The power unit is to be a direct injection V-12 approximately outputting 695 horsepower and delivered to the four wheel drive haldex system from Audi.

The car’s detailing including the rear light clusters are similar to the Reventon/Estoque as for the rest of the detailing well have to wait until the Paris motorshow.

Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 at the Nurburgring for a polish?

Today we spotted a shiny Lamborghini LP640 being loaded on to the trailer with the same crew as the recently spotted LP-560-4 facelift.

Could this be the same car which is meant to be at the Goodward Festival Of Speed in July, If so the facelifted car was probably getting some shakedown test’s prior to next months event.

I can see no other reason why a LP640 would be sat Idle waiting for its travel companion without being seen, then again it might be on the track tommorow only time will tell.

2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560-4 spyder spied on Nurburgring

Today we spotted the much rumoured Gallardo Superleggera Spyder under test at the Nurburgring.

Personally I doubt that this is a Superleggara or a Balboni, this car is just a facelift of the LP-560-4 spyder.

If a car is going to endure the nordschleife it wouldnt be missing its downforce from the “Superleggera’s” rear diffuser and smaller front splitters as any tests would be pointless.

But saying that, this also could be a early development cycle entailing the base product chassis to get the engine and other upgrades later on. (also not likely)

In this guise my bet is on a facelifted LP-560-4 probably unvailed at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Lamborghini presents the ultimate driving machine among open-top two-seaters – the Reventón Roadster is a sports car of breathtaking fascination, menacing power and uncompromising performance. The 6.5 liter twelve-cylinder generates 493 kW (670 PS), catapulting the Roadster from 0 to 100 Km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 330 KM/h (205 mph). The open-top Reventón is not only one of the fastest, but also one of the most exclusive cars in the world – Lamborghini has limited the series.

The Lamborghini Reventón is not destined to remain a one-off. Less than 20 Lamborghini friends and collectors will be able to own this extraordinary car and, naturally, enjoy the incomparable pleasure of driving it.

Each Reventón Roadster will be sold for 1.1 Million Euro (without taxes). Deliveries will begin October 2009.

“The Reventón is the most extreme car in the history of the brand,” comments Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. “The new Roadster adds an extra emotional component to our combined technological expertise – it unites superior performance with the sensual fascination of open-top driving” . The Reventón Coupé was presented at the 2007 IAA in Frankfurt and was sold out immediately.

Open-top sports cars are a tradition at Lamborghini that stretches back over 40 years. In 1968, the company from Sant’Agata Bolognese built a Miura without a fixed roof as a one-off. The Diablo Roadster appeared in 1995 with its targa roof anchored to the engine cover.
