The official countdown already began when Lamborghini issued this lame excuse of a teaser for the suspected next-generation Murcielago.  However, things are looking a bit more interesting with the release of this new teaser image.

Following a similar teaser strategy of the Estoque concept with close-up detail shots, we imagine the remaining 5 teaser images will reveal more details leading up to the Murcielago's debut in Paris on September 30th.

Rumored to be named Jota, the range toping supercar will have a new direct-injection V12 engine stamping out at least 700 PS (515 kW / 690 bhp). Standstill to 100km/h will transpire in around 3.0 seconds, while top speed blossoms at 370km/h (230 mph).

The Jota will be built with a body monocell similar to the McLaren MP4-12C. Weight is rumored to be less than 1,500kg (3,300 lbs).

Design will keep in tune with the Reventon plus new scissor doors will corkscrew out and up.

The new top dog Lamborghini should be priced in the same range as the LP 640.  We wait... and hope it is indeed the new Murci.
