Raging Bull reportedly thinking about a four-door coupe or an additional mid-engined supercar.
Italian supercar specialist – and now performance SUV-maker – Lamborghini is on the lookout to introduce a fourth product line to its selection, however it will never take place till at least 2025, according to a new report out of the Uk.
Speaking with Autocar, the company’s boss, Stefano Domenicali, was instead frank about the Raging Bull’s long term product strategies, with the new product considered to be both be a 4-doorway GT or an further mid-engined supercar.
“There is a expressing in Italy that if you take a move which is longer than your leg, you’re guaranteed to drop. We don’t have to be much too hungry we should really keep our toes on the ground, and not believe far too quick-phrase,” he informed the British publication.
“When the time is ideal, we have many tips as to what may be the product to add, for guaranteed. But this is about producing the appropriate conclusion at the correct time – and we just cannot make it now.”
“As Urus displays us, we require to be what the purchaser desires it will take time to know, you just cannot just smell it in the air. So I really do not see a fourth product coming right before 2024 or 2025,” he ongoing.
“We have to pause to have an understanding of who we will be. In this scenario, we are not fearful about the product way too significantly we want to be centered on our company, and the change it’s heading as a result of. We are not any much more in a garage we are enjoying a various video game, and we require a new mentality as a firm.”
Lamborghini has also confirmed its desire in a 4-doorway model, presenting the Estoque notion (pictured) in 2008, and several reports have circulated since seemingly confirming the manufacturing/cancellation of a four-doorway model – funnily more than enough, a report in 2010 quoted previous boss Stephan Winkelmann ruling out an SUV in favour of a four-doorway sedan. How periods have changed.
It wouldn’t be that complicated for Lamborghini to create a 4-doorway if it chooses to do so. The Volkswagen Group’s MSB-F system serves as a worthy base – it underpins the Porsche Panamera and will quickly kind the foundation of the four-door Bentley Traveling Spur.
Presented the Italian marque created a similar move borrowing the Audi Q7’s MLB system for the Urus, a shared platform for a new four-doorway would seem like a rational go.
Meanwhile, a new mid-engined product could give Lamborghini a new entry issue into its super sports activities line-up. Autocar argues a third athletics vehicle would be chasing volume, and perhaps fill the void in the Volkswagen Group that will be remaining by the Huracan-dependent Audi R8 when the current generation ceases manufacturing – Audi has claimed it has no ideas to exchange the R8 at this stage.
In addition to new product lines, Domenicali told Autocar that hybridised replacements for the two the Huracan and Aventador are less than growth, however neither will launch till up coming 10 years.
Should really Lamborghini start a four-doorway GT or another athletics motor vehicle?
