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:

2012 Seat Leon Spied Testing Day and Night 13
Posted by Alex Ion in 2012 Seat Leon, Automotive News, Golf VII, Seat Leon, spy photos on 09 13th, 2010

The unofficial sneak peek of the 2012 Seat Leon is out! Auto buffs owe their gratitude to spy photographers for posting the first pictures of the car, clicked during the daylight and night testing of the vehicle.

Again, details are quite limited, but by the looks of it, the three-door model is noticeably shorter than the camouflage suggests. It’s clear that the exhaust pipes are recessed when compared to the body.

The Leon is based on the Golf VII, so it’s safe to expect a seven-speed DSG gearbox, HCCI petrol engines and maybe even a Twin Drive plug-in hybrid powertrain. In the Golf VII, the hybrid powertrain is a combination of a 1.5-liter diesel engine with three electric motors, which gives a 48km (30 miles) range solely on electric power.

While the photos are sure to raise a buzz, we will have to wait for more details to emerge from the company or other sources to have accurate information on the Leon.
