Click above for gallery of the Lamborghini Estoque Concept

Lamborghini has spent the last few weeks tantalizing us with teasers of its front-engine, four-door concept, but that comes to an early end today as a French website has unceremoniously revealed the concept we've been calling the Estoque. Though the images in our gallery are low-res, we can still make everything out. The Estoque features a long hood and short rear deck, with horizontal headlights up front and a pair of big Reventon-style air intakes in the front bumper. The fender vents behind the front wheels are tucked into the car's character line that flows back until it hits those wide rear haunches. Thanks to those teasers we had already figured out what the rear end would look like, and all those guesses were fairly spot on. The rumormills are telling us to expect the 560-hp V10 from the Gallardo LP 560-4 underhood, as well as all-wheel-drive. Though it's showing up as a concept at the Paris Motor Show tomorrow, the Estoque is said to be destined for production as early as 2010 to compete with the new crop of four-door coupes from Porsche (Panamera) and Aston Martin (Rapide). We'll have live shots from the official unveiling early tomorrow morning, so stay tuned.

      Somewhat of a resemblance to the old dodge charger concept car.

        Right on, man. The rear 3/4 view is a ringer.

      I like it, but it's too curvy. Lamborghinis should be more angular and agressive, even in 4-door trim. This looks more like what Ferrari would do, but with a Lambo front clip.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Exactly what I was thinking. I also think that this would probably even look better as a shooting brake.

      HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHA!!!!

      oh, wow, excuse me. Let me stop for a minute and catch my brea....

      HAHAHAHA! WAHAHAH! HAHAH!!! WWWAAHAHAHAH!!!

      God, it looks like a photochopped camaro. A) Lambo shouldn't make a sedan, it dilutes the brand. B) It sucks.

        dilutes the brand!!????

        Lamborghini, as a brand that started as a TRACTOR FACTORY, and has already produced 4 seaters, as well as an off-roader, has nothing to prove!!

        They simply make fantastic vehicles no matter what kind they are, and don't have to prove to anyone any of this "pure blood brand" sh*t!!
        • 6 Years Ago
        If the Espada didn't dilute the brand, this won't either. Granted it wasn't a four-door (only a 4-seater) but it was painful to look at.

      This definitely looks more sedan than 4-door coupe.
      • 6 Years Ago
      What crap. I am really sad. No drama just a unsettled shape.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I like this car, but I miss the design purity of the Islero coupe or the adventurous lines of the Espada. It IS fairly stunning but the sexiest Italian limo mantle still belongs to the gorgeous Quattroporte.

      It would've been nice to see Lamborghini pursue a route of elegance with their 4 door concept, instead of aggression. That sort of language suits the purpose of the two doors, but seems a bit at odd with the nature of a 4-door car.

      I hope the thing will eat the Panameras dirt. I like it but i like the semi hatch/sedan styling of the Panamera better.

      HERE"S FOR A PANAMERA GT3!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      hhhhhhhhoooolllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyy SHIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTT

      That 2nd photo just does it for me. WOW!
      • 6 Years Ago
      The trouble with this and that Porsche Pana-whatever is that they're both trying to look like something they're not. I'll take the Quattroporte thank you.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I see alittle charger/challenger in there.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I actually *gasp* like the Italian flag in the *gasp* fender vents, and I HATE fender vents.
      • 6 Years Ago
      It's so near-sighted and squinty eyed...... I'll take a Quattroportte.
        • 6 Years Ago
        those rims need to be on my Audi asap!
