The successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo, which has actually performed sale for a years now. While conjecture is swarming that the Gallardo’s successor will be named after the jail isle Cabrera, we previously found a Lamborghini trademark application for 2015 Lamborghini Deimos– the god of terror and dread, if Greek folklore is to be thought– and the Italian marque very seldom trademarks a badge it doesn’t mean to utilize.
2015 Lamborghini Deimos Design and Styling
The prototype captured by our spy professional photographers puts on massive cladding, yet it can not conceal its impressive, wedge-shaped percentages. The vehicle was penned by Lamborghini’s own styling department under Filippo Perini and is a fine spiritual successor to the Gallardo, which was made by Italdesign Giugiaro with significant input by then-Lambo main designer Luc Donckerwolke. LED fronts lights and taillights give futuristic accents and similar depth and trademarks to those components discovered on the Aventador. As the Deimos’s big brother could prove, such wedge-like, angular percentages translate well to a topless variant, something we fully expect in the years after the auto’s launch.
The Deimos, as holds true with the Gallardo, will be Lamborghini’s quantity model. (At the very least up until the Urus SUV concerns market. It was confirmed previously this year by Rupert Stadler, CEO of Lamborghini’s corporate parent Audi, although the Sant’Agata-based automaker has yet to make an official announcement itself.) The Deimos will certainly outsell the Aventador by quite a broad frame, and will remain to function as a gateway to the world of this luxurious brand name. The supercar likewise must show that Lamborghini is a true modern technology leader, both to gain new consumers and to maintain its standing within the Volkswagen Group.

Underpinning the Deimos will certainly be a mid-engine platform that will be shared with the second-generation Audi R8. The frame will certainly be made from light weight aluminum, yet Lamborghini will certainly utilize a significant quantity of carbon-fiber componentry in an initiative to keep weight down.
Power will be directed solely to all 4 tires, yet, as it did in releasing the Gallardo Balboni, Lamborghini is taking into consideration rear-drive variants for at some point in the future. The automaticed handbook transmission of the present Gallardo will certainly be gotten rid of off to make method for a much smoother seven-speed dual-clutch automated.
