Lamborghini has reportedly decided the sun has set on manual transmissions.

Citing a low take rate of just one or two percent, research and development director Maurizio Reggiani indicated the Gallardo replacement - rumored to be called the Cabrera - will come exclusively with an automatic transmission. This is sad news, but it's not terribly surprising considering the Aventador is only available with a seven-speed single-clutch automated gearbox.

Besides the doom and gloom, Reggiani revealed Lamborghini will soon announce plans on whether or not they will build the Sesto Elemento concept. It is widely expected to be approved and would likely feature a 5.2-liter V10 engine with 570 PS (419 kW / 562 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque.
