It seems another great sports automaker is falling into the SUV craze. First Porsche developed the horrid Cayenne and now Lamborghini might be creating an SUV as well. Car and Driver’s German correspondent is reporting that Lamborghini is considering a hardcore SUV.

The machine is just a rumor, but if it does wind up on the planning table, reports indicate that it will be based on the Volkswagen Touareg or the Porsche Cayenne. We hope that because this is a Lamborghini, some sort of massive motor will live under the hood.

Lamborghini is also interested in entering the entry-level sports car segment, according to reports. The model would be underneath the Gallardo. This wouldn’t be the first time the Italian automaker has created an entry-level model, as its Urraco, Silhouette, and Jalpa of the 1970s and 1980s were in the same market.

We are sad to report that the Estoque concept sedan will not be produced. We loved this gorgeous machine and we had hoped to see it compete with the Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera.

Wow, this car is amazing (at least on paper), AWD V12 and all the luxury a Lamborghini requires in only 3,500lbs.

If only they could make them look decent. Modern Lambo look too much like an Enzo that got slapped in the face and kicked in the ass, and Ferrari learn that the Enzo’s look didn’t work.

Rest of the world wonders why we need such big cars, I do too. I see most SUVs being used as commuting vehicles.

what an ugly looking SUV. i can’t believe Lamborghini will build such an ugly looking SUV like this.

i think the sedan is pointless. though the concept was very appealing.
I’d like to see an LM002 revival, but not if the tires cost $10,000 a set.
a v8 would be easiest for Lambo, Audi already has the gallardo/a8 frame and a8-v8 engine. i think minimal tooling costs will prevail.

Lamborghini SUV may come to share a platform with the Porsche Cayenne/VW Touareg

Is this real?, lambo is known for it’s supercar models while Porsche really started as a tractor brand until they think of making a sports car models.
