In a recent interview, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann revealed some new details about the Gallardo successor.

Speaking with Car and Driver, Winkelmann said the car will be "a clear cut" from the Gallardo. He added, "We always say that design is not an evolution but a revolution, and this will be the philosophy of the follow-up to the Gallardo."

The model is expected to be introduced next year and is slated to ride on the modular sports car architecture (MSS) which will also underpin the next-generation Audi R8. This should result in increased parts commonality between the two models - likely 15-20% more than today's vehicles.

Power will likely be provided by a V10 engine that develops approximately 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS). It could be connected exclusively to a dual-clutch transmission.
