This is the all-new Lamborghini supercar, pictured in camouflage just one month before it is revealed in full at the Geneva motor show.

As you can (barely) see, it gets a Reventon-inspired face, and Lamborghini has announced a new, hand-built V12 engine that develops 700bhp - up by 30bhp from the LP670 - revving to a heady 8,250rpm for the Murci's successor. The engine itself weighs just 235kg, attached to a single-clutch automated manual box.

It also gets an F1-style pushrod suspension setup, and erm, that's about all we can tell you.

Excited? Just a lil' bit?
