New reports out of Europe this week suggest a successor to Lamborghini's Gallardo will be previewed at September's Frankfurt Motor Show.

Of course, with Lamborghini already confirming the Gallardo will go into retirement this year, it's no stretch to imagine that a replacement won't be far away.

This time it's Britain's Autocar reporting that a concept version of the Gallardo's replacement is right around the corner, hinting at Lambo's new 458 Italia rival.

The new entry Lambo will again share its platform with an Audi-badged stablemate - replacing the R8 - but it is believed the bull will get a shorter wheelbase and a lighter kerb weight.

Reports also point to a revised version of the existing 5.2 litre V10, picking up a boost in power to nearly 450kW - so expect an 'LP 600-4' (600hp) model to lead the way.

All-wheel-drive will remain the standard configuration although, like the Gallardo, a rear-wheel-drive option is bound to appear at some point.

A seven-speed dual-clutch auto should replace the Gallardo's e-gear automated manual, and - thanks to very low demand among buyers - a manual version probably won't appear.

Expect elements of the recent Egoista's styling to feature (although heavily toned-down), along with cues from the hero Aventador hypercar.

The name of the new model remains a secret for now, but titles like Deimos, Huracan and Cabrera are understood to be in the running.

Watch for more news to surface in the coming months.
