Lamborghini Miura not to be produced
If you were excited about the Lamborghini Miura concept, when you will be sad to know that it will not go into production. "The Miura was a celebration of our history, but Lamborghini is about the future. Retro design is not what we are here for. So we won’t do the Miura, even as a limited edition", says says boss Stephan Winkelmann.
He also said that other iconic nameplates – such as the Espada 2+2 or the LM002 SUV – were unlikely to be resurrected either. "The concept of a Lamborghini 2+2 or an SUV is possible, but we wouldn’t use the name Espada or LM002."
"I want Lamborghini on the edge," said Winkelmann. "Our brand values are uncompromising, extreme and Italian. And I want our product to match the brand. Lamborghinis must be lower, wider and more sharply styled than our rivals."
It is very posible that the next SUV to be an all-new Lamborghini, that will share the underpinnings of Audi’s forthcoming Q5 crossover.
Another good news from Lamborghini are: a roadster version of the LP640 expected in late November, and also versions for the V12 Murcielago and V10 Gallardo - posible to go on rear-drive to save weight and boost agility.
