As announced last week, Lamborghini is continuing to unravel pieces of the Lamborghini Jota puzzle, by releasing a second teaser image.
With the new car expected to be powered by a 7.0-litre V12 engine, the image of ten air vents hinting at a possible ten cylinders, or may be not, has got us stumped. What is a certainty though is that the latest Lamborghini will make extensive use of carbon fibre, as the Italian car maker is focused on reducing the weight of all its future models.
Since the middle of the ’80s, the weight of the cars has been increased gradually, through the addition of various safety systems. Lamborghini recently announced that it will try to counteract these effects by using carbon fibre on a large scale. For the new Lamborghini Jota, this means a high power-to-weight ratio, which will make for superior acceleration and handling characteristics.
Unfortunately, the Italian manufacturer still hasn’t released any actual details of the Lamborghini Jota. Not even its name has been confirmed, but ‘Jota’ is the popular choice at this stage. Speculation says the new Lambo will have a top speed of 350 km/h and a 0 – 100 km/h sprint time of 3 seconds. The price is expected to be around EUR350 000.
