Lamborghini Gallardo succeeder?
So since the Aventador succeeded the Murcielago, what are we in for the Gallardo?

I believe the word is successor.
And considering there havent been any concepts or anything I'm not sure it'll come so soon. Seems the next lambo will be the Urus.A successful man is someone who wakes up in the morning, goes to sleep at night, and does whatever makes him happy in between.
Happiness is the only thing worth pursuing.

We should see a Gallardo Replacement around 2014, 2017 is the earliest the Urus will go into production. Lambo needs to get on the replacements, the G is getting dated.

Yes; lets all play the "Correct people on their grammar" game!

With all due respect Mr. Vain, English grammar is not a game! English is still considered as the international standard when it comes to communication around the world. You indirectly translate your level of knowledge and literacy to the reader when writing in English. By not accepting your mistake, which we all make sometimes, you are showing your level of respect for a language that allows you to communicate on a global scale.
As for the Gallardo successor, I had read a while back that it would be the 2014 Cabrera.“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

I find it very strange we haven't seen any spy shots of a test mule for the Gallardo successor yet, I'm sure Lamborghini has been working on it for a while now ... not nothing leaked out yet.
Take a look at the shot I found earlier this year ... shows a 'street legalized' Sesto Elemento look :
An excerpt from the article I wrote in May this year :
I would be really amazed if they managed to design, build and test a new V10 mode without anyone shooting a spy pic or leaking any information ... but I could be really wrong and we might be seeing a Cabrera in a few months anyway.
Others are talking about the Aventador Roadster again, we all expected it to be unveiled in Geneva earlier this year, but we were all wrong, no Roadster version yet, and it makes sense ... production capacity of the Aventador LP700-4 is already maxed out, delivery times are reaching 24 months in some regions, adding a Roadster to this production line would create catastrophic delays.
So a concept at the Paris show with a production ready version of the new V10 in Geneva might not seem too far-fetched after all, also note the Super Trofeo series that uses the 'old' Gallardo will continue to run in 2013, so revealing the Gallardo successor in early 2013 might not be a bad idea, deliveries will probably only start towards the summer of 2013 in Europe anyway, with other markets getting the first 'public' cars even later ... after the Super Trofeo season ended.
This would mean we will not be seeing the Aventador Roadster at the 2013 Geneva show either but a new Lamborghini Cabrera LP600-4 could take center stage in March 2013, perhaps the Aventador Roadster would be unveiled at the 2013 IAA in Frankfurt instead ... at that moment the big rush of orders on the normal Aventador might be going back to normal. In that case reduction in demand can be turned around with the Roadster edition, keeping the production line busy for another few years to come ... until a third model is added in 2015 and Lamborghini can introduce the Aventador LP800-4 Super Veloce.

I can't say anything about the G replacement but the Urus will be out for sure by 2014.

If the Gallardo is based on the Sesto Elemento I'd be happy...
URUS looks like shit.
