Lamborghini Murcielago successor delayed until 2012 |

Though everybody was expecting to see a successor for the Lamborghini Murcielago soon, German magazine Auto Moto und Sport revealed that the Italian carmaker has pushed back the launch date for the new car. Nothing’s official so far, but it seems that we won’t see a new Lambo earlier than 2012. Lamborghini cars are known to have a quite long lifespan, models like the Countach or the Diablo being produced for sixteen, respectively eleven years. And while the Sant’Agata company managed to keep the car quite fresh, by launching the LP640, the Reventon, the LP650-4, the LP670-4 SuperVeloce and several limited editions, the Murcielago has aged and a successor is more than welcome, but we’ll have to wait for that.

As for the new Lambo, there aren’t many details available but there are a lot of rumors. Some expect Lamborghini to replace the steel chassis with an aluminium one, based on the Audi R8′s. What’s almost sure is that the Murcielago successor will have all-wheel-drive and a revised version of the current V12 will probably be under the hood. According to other rumors, the car will feature a shorter front overhang and a wheelbase similar to the Murcielago’s. We’ll let you know once we have more details.
