Lamborghini Estoque Confirmed

Lamborghini Estoque Confirmed

AutoCar is reporting that Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini has confirmed the production of the Lamborghini Estoque at the Bologna Motor Show.

We have opportunities outside the supercar business, and we showed that with Estoque. It had a more enthusiastic response than we had expected. It was the right time to see if the brand could go outside of supercars. Even now, people are still emailing me about us making the Estoque. We really have a choice when it comes to an additional model: an SUV or a four-seat four-door. And for me the SUV is a no-go. It doesn’t exist in our price segment, and it’s not a real luxury car.

There are more opportunities in the segment of four-doors. If we are going to offer a third model, it could be a ‘first’ car, bringing people to our brand. Other car companies have to adjust their products for these areas, but luxury brands are the opposite. The customer wants the original, not something that’s been adapted to them. So they want a Lamborghini exactly as it would be in Italy.

We do customising — colours and trim. But we will never do anything else. – Stephan Winkelmann

Lamborghini four-door Estoque production rumors return


Rumors have died down since the 2008 Paris Auto Show when the Lamborghini Estoque was announced, a vehicle that is supposed to rival the Porsche Panamera Turbo, Aston Martin Rapide, and the next generation Maserati Quattroporte due to the fact that the 2011 launch date was scrubbed because of the global recession.  Now rumors have resurfaced that the four-door Italian beauty is scheduled to be released in 2012.  At a stunning 542 BHP and 398 lb-ft of Torque, it surely will give it’s European friends quite a sweat.
