Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Aventador LP700-4, Jota, Lamborghini, Murciélago on 12 15th, 2010

Remember there had been talk of the Jota sometime back? Well, the car (also known as the Aventador LP700-4) from the Lamborghini stables is back in the news in the form of a bunch of leaked pictures.

Though heavily camouflaged, the pictures give us a fairly good idea of what the vehicle would be like. The car, tipped as a successor to Murcielago, is seen as a worthy successor to the hugely loved Murcielago.

To be driven by a fresh 6.5 liter V12 engine that returns 515 kW (700 PS / 690 bhp) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque the car will sport a 7-speed single clutch gearbox with independent shifting rods.

The Lambo Aventador LP700-4 will be able to race from 0 to 100 km/h in a matter of just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of around 350 km/h (217 mph).   The leaked images have however not spurred the car maker to speak more about it.

Further to the tons of spy pictures of the Jota we have been bringing to you, here’s a video leak that’s coming your way. Prying eyes of automotive lensmen have been capturing the Lamborghini Jota prototype in all splendor at the testing grounds of Nurburgring.  The latest vide that has surfaced brings in a detailed look at what could be said as the standard model of the Jota.

We say standard model, because the video images of the car doesn’t show it sporting a rear spoiler. We hear the Jota will take over from the earlier Murcielago and would come in as a lighter and lower version than the Murcielago. Under the hood will be a direct-injection V12 that returns 700 PS (515 kW).

Further, the Lamborghini Jota prototype is likely to be revealed sporting the famed Swedish  Haldex all-wheel drive system. Here’s the video:

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Haldex, Jota, Lamborghini Jota, Murciélago on 10 7th, 2010

Following a few photos that emerged some weeks ago of two Lamborghini Jota prototypes, some new photos have emerged of what seems to be the Lamborghini Jota Superleggera prototype. After the first set of photos came out there was much speculation that one of the prototypes was a Superleggera.

These new photos seem to confirm this – although the car was still heavily camouflaged. The pictures were taken during additional testing that the car was undergoing. Additional details that have emerged from these pictures is that there are adjustable air intakes on each side of the engine bay – which is a feature of the current Murcielago. The new prototypes are intended to be a replacement of the Murcielago

According to previously information, the Jota will have both a lower ride height and weigh less than its predecessor due to the aluminum space-frame and carbon fiber body it has. The rear engine will be a direct-injection V12 that will produce around 700 hp powering a Haldex all-wheel drive system.

Lamborghini Jota Prototypes Spotted 22
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Concept car news, Jota, Lamborghini, Murciélago, Nürburgring circuit, Superlegga on 09 22nd, 2010

Two Lamborghini’s Jota prototypes were spied at the Nurburgring circuit. One of them sported a rear spoiler – which is likely to be the Superlegga variant; the other prototype was without a spoiler.

Reports say that the prototypes were put into trucks and carted back to Italy, even though this week was set aside for testing. This has given rise to speculation that there may be more work remaining to be completed on the models. But the fact that the prototypes appear to have gone through both the hot weather as well as winter testing phases, seems to indicate that it will make an appearance without too much delay.

Set to replace the Murcielago, the Jota sits a little lower than its predecessor, and weighs a bit less too. This lighter quality has been achieved due to the aluminum space frame that the Jota has and the carbon fiber body components.

A direct-injection V12 of around 700 horsepower hooked up to a Haldex all-wheel drive system powers the Jota. Reports say that design influences have come from the Estoque and Reventon.

As for the other model, there are rumors that the 83X will take over for the Gallardo; others say it could be a competing with the Ferrari 599 GTB.

It is understood that at the Paris Show, the company will be trying to focus attention on the 83X – which has one hour allotted to it, according to the leaked schedule; as compared to just 25 minutes for the LB715-5.

More details are expected to come out after a possible Lamborghini dealer meeting that is set to take place on the 23rd of September.
