Lamborghini at the 2012 Paris Motor Show with the Nova - the STORY

It has been very quiet the last few weeks when it comes to information about what we'll be seeing later this week at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, lots or rumors went around the world about the Aventador Roadster that's been captured with little camouflage lately while other sources talked about the Gallardo successor.

But both options are getting less and less possible ... the Aventador Roadster looks about ready to be produced, but at the moment the factory at Sant'Agata just doesn't have the production capacity to add another V12 on the production line and more importantly some credible source stated the flagship Roadster to be unveiled in Los Angeles later this year while the Gallardo successor has been confirmed for a 2014 production only, so most likely we'll be seeing a concept or prototype towards the end of 2013.

And today Automobili Lamborghini SpA released this video : Lamborghini @ Paris Motor Show 2012 - #NOVA video teaser

When you read Nova you might think about a new model, but when you study this video closer you notice a Superleggera style wheel, carbon fiber exterior rear view mirrors, a Gallardo seat ... and at the end it clearly states 'GALLARDO' ... so if I would have to make a guess based on this video I would say this is another Gallardo evolution ... probably not a new limited edition like we've seen before.

I think we are looking at the final evolution in the Gallardo lineup, a model that succeeds the LP560-4 boasting additional power and probably altered looks ... an evolution, not a revolution ... the latter will happen when the successor is unveiled.
