Click above for a high-res gallery of the mystery Lamborghini concept

While we've pretty much had it up to our Hans device with the speculation surrounding Lamborghini's Paris surprise, another salient detail has emerged about the rumored front-engined, four-door sedan due to be unveiled on Thursday at the Paris Motor Show.

Previous reports about the Lamborghini concept wearing a Urus badge are thankfully bunk (who wants to drive a supercar named after a large bovine?) and World Car Fans has dropped the name Estoque (without citing any sources), which according to Encyclopedia Brittanica is a small blade that delivers the death blow to a bull at the end of a stadium fight. We're still more than a few days away from the official reveal, but in the meantime, enjoy the gallery of teasers below, along with the image above created by LamboPower member a007api.

      I hope this is misinformation to hide the real name. For a company whose image is a raging bull, the last thing you want to name your vehicle after is a device used to kill bulls, especially if that device is a 4 door supersedan like the hideous Panamera.

      I'm guessing that Lamborghini didn't give it a bull's name because it is likely to stay as a concept,

      Estoque: how fitting for a car that (in principle) delivers the death blow to the almighty bull we all know as Lamborghini.

      A four door Lambo? Really, is there any millionaire out there that has to justify buying a Lamborghini to his/her spouse for practicality reasons???

      Huh?

      What next a mass market, unreliable Honda that sucks down 8 gallons per mile of premium petrol? Sounds promising...

        I was wondering what the bleep estorque means? Hmm I don't know if any rapper gonna feature this in their lyrics? Estorque...snd kinda lame if you ask me. And I don't like how the rear looks.

        'Estoque' (not estoRque) is a triangular or quadrangular section sword with non-cutting edges, in the likes of the floret or the stilleto, made esclusively for piercing attack (='estocada') - one example? The bullfighter sword...

        Estoque ryhmes with Glock, so i don't think the rappers will have problem.

      um.... aren't most of Lambo's cars named after large bovines? Specifically famous fighting bulls?

      Murcielago, Reventon, etc....
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's what I thought - they were named for specific fighting bulls. I wouldn't expect, then, that they'd use the name of a type of knife, regardless of how its related...

      Estrus?

      For all the name haters, it is like, like murcielago and gallardo, SPANISH, not Italian. And because of that, it is pronounced es-TOH-kay with the stress on the next-to-last syllable. Not "es-tock" like "glock" not "es-toke" like "oak". It does sound elegant, actually.

      That said...a four-door, front-engined Lambo? Oh Lawd, say it ain't so.

      Yeah that sounds totally sexy... not.
      Most other Lamborghini names have sounded sexy like Countach, Diablo, etc.
      Estoque is about as sexy as Jalpa.

      ESTOQUE?

      hell to the naw.
