Lamborghini Teases New Supercar for Paris
As if the 2014 Paris Motor Show wasn’t interesting enough with the planned debuts of the Mercedes-AMG GT, the Jaguar XE and the Infiniti QX70S Design, the folks over at Lamborghini have announced plans to introduce a new vehicle of their own at the French event. But unlike other manufacturers, the Italian company didn’t release more than just a teaser photo and a vague description of its upcoming supercar.
Although the photo is far from revealing, it does say a lot about Lambo’s new creation. Firstly, it’s obvious the body shape doesn’t stray far from what we’ve seen from the Italians lately. There’s a bit of Huracan and Aventador in there, with muscular rear fenders that incorporate large air intakes. Secondly, the engine is right where it’s supposed to be; behind the seats. So far so good, but then there’s the message that comes with the teaser. It reads "once perfection is achieved, you can just double it," and, needless to say, it leaves a lot of room for interpretation.
Granted, it doesn’t mean we’ll be getting a special-edition Huracan with double the horsepower, but what’s Lamborghini up to? Should we expect a Lambo with two additional doors, as in a four-door super sedan? Are the Italians adding two more seats to come up with a 2+2 GT? Join us in our search to find out what this teaser is all about past the jump.

Why It Matters
While a four-door Lamborghini would mean awesomeness on wheels for the eccentric, that’s a very unlikely scenario. The silhouette depicted above is a tad too short for a sedan, while the proportions of the vehicle clearly can’t accommodate two additional doors.
Lambo could also unveil a special-edition model based on either the Huracan or the Aventador. We can see that coming. However, both the glass area and the rear fenders carry different designs. Either the Huracan or the Aventador would have to undergo extensive modifications or we’re looking at an entirely different vehicle.
Which brings us to the scenario we consider most likely; the Italians are doubling the seating configuration. That’s right folks; Lamborghini is finally launching a 2+2 seater to go against the Ferrari FF. Sure, the latter comes with a long hood and an engine mounted up front, but the fact that Lambo is rolling out a mid-engine, 2+2 supercar isn’t a bad thing. On the contrary, it takes everything there is to like about the FF and wraps it up in a rig that has its engine in the right place. Behind the seats, that is!
Stay tuned for more details on this new Lamborghini on October 2nd, 2014. We’ll be back with more info as soon as we have it.
