Lamborghini LM002

The four-door Bugatti Galibier hypersaloon is nearing its final production status. Some minor design changes are being incorporated, but the eight exhaust pipes will stay, according to Caranddriver German correspondent Jens Meiners in his weekly column. He also revealed some of Lamborghini’s future plans:

Very high-placed sources are hinting that Lamborghini might expand its portfolio with two more models. One of them is an entry-level sports car positioned below the Gallardo and powered by a V8. Going into this segment is not an absurd proposition at all: From the early 1970s to the mid-’80s, the Lamborghini Urraco and its only slightly altered successors, the targa-roof Silhouette and Jalpa, represented the brand remarkably well against the Ferrari/Dino 308 GT4 and the Maserati Merak. These classic models are still undervalued and are sure to pick up quickly should Lamborghini enter the segment again.

We will stay tuned for more on this!

The second model which Lamborghini could launch is an SUV in the spirit of the monstrous LM002. It could share the platform with the Porsche Cayenne and the VW Touareg, but would not be recognizable as either. In the past few years, Lamborghini has also toyed with a contemporary interpretation of the big four-seater, two-door Espada, but the project was shot down for the time being. The same goes for the four-door Estoque; its chances of being put into production are slim.

  1. @ comments above:

    because an estoque isnt a lamborghini.

    same way a panamera isnt a porsche. porsche is never the same again. they have become another german brand who make luxury cars like bmw and audi.

    they are not the german sports car maker who made the famous 911.

    lamborghini will become just another brand if they lead into that road.

    which is shit because lamborghini is a name only spoken at the most outrageous supercars. and it should stay that way

  2. @Shawn: I totally agree. Those capitalist pigs are ruining their brands, and for what, more money? That’s so pathetic, do they have no morals? It’s not like making more money is what business is about.

  3. I would love to see something close to the Jalpa 3.5 that was a very cool looking car or even that prototype for the miura they designed in 2006 …that was a Really sweet comeback for the Miura, looked even better than the Ford GT and I love the Ford GT.
