The prospect of a new Lamborghini sport-ute is enough to send the automotive press scurrying for details and even credible speculation. Last month, we brought you a report based on spy shots of a disguised Porsche Cayenne that was thought to be a possible Lambo test mule. Now our friends over at Info Motori have issued a few renderings of what they think a future Lamborghini truck should look like.

The images show what you could basically call a Murcielago LP640 all jacked up on 'roids and wearing combat boots. The "design language" is approximately in stride with the current Lamborghini line-up, only with an aggressive off-road stance that couldn't be mistaken for a crossover. Which is just as well, because the original Lamborghini SUV, the LM002, was about as potent an off-roader as they come. It was essentially an Italian take on the Hummer (Iong before the Oltre Fiat came along), having competed for the same Pentagon contract as the original H1.

While some speculation places the Gallardo's V10 under the hood of a future Lambo truck, Info Motori suggests that, like the LM002 which used the Countach's V12, their concept – dubbed LM005 Lagartijo – would be powered by the latest adaptation of the Lamborghini V12, as used in the Murcielago.

One of the most interesting elements of this design gives the concept truck half-doors in the back, à la Mazda RX-8. That lets the design retain a coupe-like profile (also in keeping with the rest of the Lambo line-up) while granting access to the rear seats.

For what it's worth, we hope these predictions come true.

      That thing is hideous. It's amazing how is only takes a little bit of distortion to go from an awesome car to that thing. Thankfully it's just some douchenozzle's interpretation of what a lambosuv would look like.

      Take that thing behind the shed and put her down...

      V12 or go home.

      A jacked-up Audi is not a legitimate Lamborghini off-roader.

      The award for ugliest vehicle EVER goes to...

      I don't want to be tasteless, but that thing there is as a fine a candidate for a suicide bombing as I've ever seen. If you're going to kill yourself anyway you might as well take one of those f***ing abominations with you!

      well, at least it blows away the ugly porsche cayenne in the looks dept.

      Please, lamborghini, don't do this to yourself. VW Group, stop while there is still time. Slay this beast before it goes any further. A coupelike profile is not fitting to an SUV.

      it looks like a jacked up murcielago for christs sake

      This is glorious news for all the rich, poseur schmucks of the world.

      Lamborghini made the LM002, and for an off-road vehicle it looked OK. If they'd made it look like the Countach on the other hand, I would have laughed then too. Heh, heh this thing looks like a happy bulldog puppy on stilts.

      To each his own I guess.

      Check out the LM002 here.

      wow whoever rendered this one really should brainstorm and use some logic next time, the first thing that makes this ridiculous is the fact that the door jam, i'm esimating about foot and a half- two feet off the ground, also the rear air dams...on a front engined vehicle just to name a few

      O.M.G.....New low for humanity.

      The bull that will humiliate himself for food. Thanks soccer moms!

      don't forget that Mr. Lamborghini started off with tractors! way before the LM002. I think this would be cool but only if its a two door! Total excess! All the size and none the utility! Hey, if you're gonna go for it, might as well go all out. At least don't give it 4 doors.
