Lamborghini Estoque sedan confirmed

It’s funny how Lamborghini went out of their way to state that the Estoque concept was never going to make the production line, and now they are recoiling and backtracking to announce something that we knew anyway. Guess what everyone; Lamborghini will indeed bring a production version of the Estoque concept sedan unveiled at the 2008 Paris Auto Show. Yes, we know, hold back the shocked expressions and gasps of surprise. In a recent interview, CEO Stephan Winkelmann told reporters in the US that "a third model would fit Lamborghini very well, and a four-door car would be a very feasible approach."

Lamborghini believes that a luxury sedan will help reverse Lamborghini’s falling sales. Winkelmann said a third model would need to provide "a real leap" in sales. Well, thanks for the update, Captain Obvious.

Under the hood, the production will likely have something along the lines of the V10 from theGallardo LP 560-4 that produces 560hp. This engine would make it an ideal competitor for the Aston Martin Rapide which only produces 470hp. A production version will be priced in the $200k area and will target models like the Aston Martin Rapide and the Porsche Panamera .

I really love the sportiness of this car. The decent styling makes it quite gorgeous. Aside from that the figure performance of the car is quite impressive as well.

hmm. This is still a concept car! I wonder what would be its complete figure performance. I hope to read future review on this car!

I wonder when is their plan to debut this car. I want to hear more updates on this production. And I hope to see it in the showroom in the future!

extremely gorgeous car! heck! I wonder if this car will be the successor of the Gallardo. BTW, for a v10 technology its power output is quite impressive as well.

You have seen our new concept super car, our energy and resources are being directed toward the development of the said and nothing more.

Original for Lambo....the details were great, put them together and well you have a just a four door, nothing truly special. Except it still looks better than the 4 door Porsche.

Lamborghini’s design is somewhat the same with each other...just differ in name and specs..

We are not building this car. We will stay true to our heritage of building ultra sports cars for our customers. 2 doors 10-12 cylinders and nothing that could be called practical or economical.

The buttons look cheap. How about some brushed metal in there?

it’s nice but I agree with the critics.... this is waaay to civilized and un-dramatic to be a lambo. This would’ve made a great Maserati Quattroporte though. looks way less awkward than the real one

Nice and very informative post, in a recent interview, CEO Stephan Winkelmann told reporters in the US that "a third model would fit Lamborghini very well, and a four-door car would be a very feasible approach."

Now let’s try to bet how long it will take Ferrari to resist the opportunity of a Sedan ! They said they would never build a sedan... but if lambo and aston do it, I don’t think they will resist. Especially not after the quite successfull launch ofthe porsche Panamera, as ugly as it is, it fly of the shelves of all the Porsche dealers !
