Lamborghini doesn’t usually build a concept car without it getting put to some kind of use in the future. It’s never happened, and we’ll place bets on the fact that it won’t ever happen. Try as they may to deny the fact that the Estoque would not see the production line, this concept vehicle stood a fantastic chance at becoming the third model in Lamborghini’s line-up.

To prove our theory, we bring you this. In a recent statement Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed that the company is indeed preparing a third model, and that this new model is not an SUV as people have speculated, but a four-door luxury sedan.

"We have opportunities outside the supercar business, and we showed that with Estoque. It had a more enthusiastic response than we had expected. It was the right time to see if the brand could go outside of supercars. Even now, people are still emailing me about us making the Estoque."

And if the strong demand for a production version of the Estoque doesn’t make them actually build it, the recent success the company has been having on the Chinese market may just give Lamborghini the final push they need, especially since luxury four-door sedans are in high demand over there.

UPDATE 05/24/2011: Here’s a bit of good news for Lamborghini owners that feel a little silly dropping their kids off at school in their new Aventador LP700-4; the company has just revealed plans for a third model in their lineup that will fulfill the need for a daily driver. Lamborghini chief executive Stephan Winkelmann said, "We are going to have a third model. It has to be an everyday car. We want to have a car which is able to be used on a daily basis."

Could this be the production Estoque we have been waiting for? We think so.

Exterior and Interior

Just like the concept car, the production version Estoque will be an elegant luxury four-door sedan. It will take Lamborghini’s supercar design and combine it into a sedan with compact dimensions, exactly what it will need for great performance. The concept vehicle was 4.43 feet high, but had a long wheelbase to make the car more spacious inside. This will also allow for the low, leaning back position typical of any Lamborghini. Whaty will change for the sedan is that it will have doors that will open in a traditional front-hinged, swing out manner.

The Engine

Under the hood, the production Estoque will have something along the lines of the V10 from the Gallardo LP 560-4 that produces 560hp. This engine would make it an ideal competitor for the Aston Martin Rapide which only produces 470hp.

The Competition

The Lamborghini Estoque will be a competitor for models like the aforementioned Aston Martin Rapide and the Porsche Panamera, but will prove to be more luxurious. With luxury comes high prices, so we expect that the Estoque will carry a heftier price tag than its competitors.

We would also like to believe that the production version Estoque will be a competitor for the future Koenigsegg sedan. Both cars will produce the same performance numbers, but the Koenigsegg will actually be an electric vehicle.

When Can I Buy One?

We will need to wait a little bit more for the production version Estoque because the successors for the Murcielago and the Gallardo come before the luxury sedan in the pecking order. Don’t expect to see it before 2014.

I wonder why it take so long before they build the production version of this car? I think this concept car was announced along with the popularity of Gallardo. Its competitor is not that powerful.

I have seen the future line up vehicle of the Lamborghini and I would say that these production vehicles is quite unique to one another. They offer different platform for the car and engine as well.

Hey, is there any news yet about this one? I heard that this will be the basis of the so called “everyday car” that Lamborghini is planning to release by next year.

hmm. Why does it needs too much time before being line up for production? It seems that this would be similar to their current production that’s why I can sense a doubt on this concept. Well, in case that it wouldn’t be lucky still I want to see its specs on their future production.

Cars like Ferrari and Lamborghini, are good racer on the straight line though I’m not saying that they have difficulty on corners just like muscle cars. My point is I wonder if this car can truly hit its speed figure. I guess we need to wait until 2015!

Well, we might want to wait and see first what would happen with this one once they have released it. I must admit that I am really a bit skeptical about the whole idea.

Well, the Estoque actually looks good to be a daily driver, would be a bit surprised if it wouldn’t be the one they are talking about. Though they will have to work on this one more to fit the bill perfectly.

Hmm, an Estoque for a daily ride, that one would really be quite something. But I doubt that the car would make a good choice for that one, since the design still needs to be refined.

  (619) posted on 05.25.2011

Well, if they are planning an everyday ride, then I would agree that the Estoque would be the most suitable choice. While it is very beautiful, it isn’t as much attention grabbing as, say the Aventador.

  (412) posted on 05.25.2011

Well, that one would really be a good move by Lamborghini. Lets face it, much of the company’s models are more for showing off, rather than doing the daily drive.

The luxurious and sporty look of this car gives me uncertainty to use it daily though its not ga guzzler. I think it would be better if they would come up with school bus type or whatsoever!

  (599) posted on 05.25.2011

Wow! I think this concept is somewhat new to me. They are actually planning to released an everyday used sportscar. Since they are using the engine of the Gallardo, we have the assurance that it wouldn’t be gas guzzler. And that’s a good news!

im a fan of Lamborghini and for the first time I don’t like this new model. I think it doesn’t look balance somehow.

  (830) posted on 02.7.2011

And next we will hear from Ferrari that they will do a 4 door.

  (797) posted on 02.7.2011

Great news about fine time hopefully they keep the same design though.

Definitely hard to decide which is going to be the best-looking sedan made - the Estoque or the Rapide.

  (539) posted on 02.1.2011

I know this is blasphemous, but something about it reminds me of an American muscle has like a hint of Camaro and Challenger.

  (409) posted on 01.30.2011

We would like to believe that the production version of the 2014 Lamborghini Estoque will be a competitor for the future Koenigsegg sedan.

  (427) posted on 01.30.2011

For sure, once the Lamborghini Estoque has been out in the market. There will be a serious competition for luxury cars between Aston Martin, Porsche and Lamborghini. Can’t wait for 2014 smiley
