Lamborghini has just released the first of six teaser images for its next super sports car; the successor to the outrageous Murcielago. Set to debut at the Paris Auto Show on September 30th, the Italian automaker will release five more snapshots of the upcoming supercar.

Rumored to be called the Jota (among other things), rumors suggest the latest in a long line up V12 powered Lambos will focus a great deal on weight savings. In fact, the Murcielago successor will get a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, similar to the McLaren MP4-12C, Lexus LFA and Aston Martin One-77. Power is expected to reach the 700-hp mark thanks t0 direct-injection and with a curb weight of just 3,300 lbs it should hit 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds and blast on to a top speed of 230-mph.

AutoGuide will be on hand in Paris with full coverage of the Paris Auto Show. Plus, we’ll be sure to bring you the next five teaser images as they’re released.

Considering the non-carbon fiber LP670-4 super veloce costs $500,000, this new model will be around $700,000 - $800,000 with the extensive use of carbon fiber.

I hope it doesn't look as bloated as the Veyron. So are they suggesting the new Gallardo will get a V12?

I like the preliminary specs.

Only time will tell if the new cars design is paying homage to the old mid-90's SE30 Jota Diablo or a revolutionary one.
