SPY SHOTS : Test-mule for Lamborghini's Murcielago replacement

It's been 6 years now for Lambo making the Murcielago . Despite they even made the LP640 version , they need to change it now .

Well , reporters spotted at the Nurburgring what likely to be a test-mule for the Murcielago’s replacement . That means , the new bull will keep the Murcielago’s V12 mid-engine platform . But this one should be a lot more improved , because Ferrari , Porsche and even Aston Martin are ringing the bell in . So they need to come up with something really good . Rumors say it will be called the Jota and it will come in by late 2010 as a 2011 model . And they claim it'll be the fastest Lamborghini in history. However , it is still very early to have any official information .

So what can we see from the outside ? You may wonder on what are these "weird" rims , but in fact they are RoaDyn torque sensor that is used to monitor the different forces and torque levels exerted on a specific wheel at different speeds. The data gathered can help engineers work out varying grip and traction levels in an effort to fine tune the vehicle’s AWD and suspension settings, plus its ride and handling characteristics. Other than the rims , it just looks like a normal Mercielago. As I told you , it is very early to suspect anything . But lets hope it could be as good as its younger brother , the LP560-4 .
