Lamborghini has confirmed it will unveil a road-going ‘super sports car’ at the Frankfurt motor show in September – and it is expected to be a race-inspired version of the Lamborghini Gallardo.
Lamborghini’s cryptic Frankfurt announcement suggested that its show car would be red, and last weekend it gave the strongest hint yet that it would unveil a road-going, race-inspired version of the Gallardo when it painted its factory car in the one-make Super Trofeo race series the same colour.
The new car is expected to be the most hardcore road-going variant of the car to date. It will be sold in strictly limited numbers and will be promoted as being produced as part of a celebration of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the unification of Italy.
Several limited edition Gallardo’s have already been launched previously, including the LP 550-2 Balboni, LP 570-4 Superleggera, LP 570-4 Spyder Performante and Bicolore edition.
Although no date has been announced for the launch of the Gallardo’s replacement, Lamborghini is strongly tipped to give the car the Cabrera name.
