The mystery seems to be solved: Lamborghini’s concept for Paris Auto Show is a four-door concept, a preview version of a future competitor for the Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide. The name for it, according to a latest trade mark from Lamborghini, will be Urus. This is somewhat in line with Lambo’s tradition of giving its cars the names of famous bulls - Urus is a type of large ox-like cattle that went extinct a couple of hundred years ago.

The Urus’ engine will be mounted in front of the driver but behind the front axle. Like its more exotic siblings, it will also have four-wheel drive.

Lamborghini sources said that the production four-door car could have a smaller engine than the carmaker’s current smallest unit, the Gallardo’s 5.0-liter V-10. This would keep the car relatively short. Audi could supply the engine, which could be a direct-injection, twin turbocharged unit. Production version will be limited to 3000 units a year, same as the future Rapide.
