Lamborghini officially ended the production run of the Murcielago with a symbolic parade out of the gates of the Lamborghini factory on November 5, 2010. In all, 4099 Murcielagos were made with the last one rolling off the production line on May 11, 2010. Why Lamborghini waited so long is anyone's guess.
According to a respected member on FerrariChat, the Murcielago's successor codenamed LP700-4 and believed to called Jota will have a 6.5 liter V12 putting out 700HP to all 4 wheels. 0-62mph will take an estimated 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 219mph predicted.
The entire car will be made out of carbon fiber making it 500 lbs. lighter than the outgoing Murcielago. It will also feature an F1 based suspension and a seven-speed single-clutch automated manual capable of delivering 50-ms shifts.
The car is expected to debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Let the countdown begin!
