I don't think they'll ever produce an oil -burning Murcielago. That would be too painful to watch.

However. Look at the Gallardo - their baby supercar (with only a V10).

They've already confirmed that they'll be selling a "budget" version with the V8 unit from the RS4, so this is the platform that I think will see a diesel first. I would imagine the twin- turbo V8 diesel from the Audi A8 could be made to fit without too many problems.

I really hope they don't though. Part of the appeal of a "supercar" is the whole experience...hearing a supercar blat past you puts a smile on your face...hearing one clunk and rattle past you and coat you in a cloud of black smoke...just doesn't cut it IMO...
