. It will still aim for weighing in an under 1,500kg. The body will be mostly carbon fiber.

The engine is said to be an evolution of the current 5.2-liter V10 with power pushed close to 600hp. The current top Gallardo has 570hp. Power will get to the wheels via a dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.

The production Cabrera is expected to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show next March, but a concept could be shown before then.

The Gallardo went into production in 2003 with a 5.0-liter V10 that was enlarged to 5.2-liters in 2008. With over a decade in production, the Gallardo has become the most-produced Lamborghini ever made with over 13,000 units as of the fiscal year 2012 and counting.
