Lamborghini V12 supercar | Video | scoop

Published: 07 October 2010

Watch next year’s new 2011 Lamborghini Murcielago replacement being tested at the Nurburgring in our new spy video. Shot on location on and around the Nordschleife, it’s a great chance to see and hear the new Lambo supercar ahead of its planned debut a the 2011 Geneva motor show.

The plan for the new Lamborghini range-topper is to go fully carbon. That was the purpose of the fully composite Sesto Elemento concept car shown this month at the 2010 Paris motor show.

It showcased the weight savings made possible by extensive use of carbonfibre, as well as pointing to a new wedgy, sharp-creased style for future Lambos. In a two-fingered salute to its chums over in Maranello, the Sesto Elemento weighed in at 999kg, a solitary kilo under the eponymously titled Ferrari Mille Chili from 2007.

See the new 700bhp, four-wheel drive Murcielago replacement in the scoop video below. When you hear the V12 driven in anger, as it dices with a Porsche 911 at the Ring, it makes you wonder why they bothered disguising it! !
