Juicy rumours from the internet indicate we could be seeing two new Lamborghini supercars at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and not just the one carbon fibre, supersports car manifesto previously thought. According to reports, what’s known as the Lamborghini Jota (codenamed LB715-5) will be presented, which is a new V12 model to replace the Murcielago.
It will apparently appear alongside something at this stage internally called the Lamborghini 83X which is a total mystery at this stage. The rumours have emerged after invitations to a special dealers event were issued, where the new carbon fibre Jota will most probably be presented. As we already mentioned, the McLaren competition on the carbon front may have galvanised Lamborghini into investing in this technology, and this new model apparently has a carbonfibre tub similar to that of the MP4-12C and made by the same manufacturer, Carbo Tech.
The teaser shots that Lamborghini has been releasing would indicate the Jota carbonfibre project, so the other mystery model is currently open to the wildest speculation. Apparently both the new models will be revealed at the dealers event on September 23rd, which is a full week before the Paris show opens to the press. So we’ll be waiting for exclusive spy shots and speculation to appear on the web later this week.
