Lamborghini crossover edging out Estoque sedan for production
Given that other exotic automakers like Porsche and Maserati have gone both ways, we asked you, our faithful readers, to cast your vote in our informal online poll, and the outcome was clear: over 59 percent of responders wanted a four-door Lamborghini sedan like the Estoque concept. Less than 18 percent liked the idea of a Lamborghini crossover, overshadowed by the 23.5 percent who would rather see the House that Ferruccio Built stick with supercars.
Unfortunately, the product planners feel differently, as reports suggest that the crossover is more likely to get the nod than the sedan. Emerging markets like China, India and Latin America – where a soft-roader would prove more popular – have apparently been swaying the decision-makers. The resulting vehicle is likely to borrow its underpinnings from the Porsche Cayenne, offer all-wheel drive and possibly a turbocharged engine – but no hybrids or diesels.
Of course the announcement hasn't been made yet, so there's no telling what might happen until it is, but for now, it looks like the LM002 is coming back, in one form or another, while the Estoque will (for the time being at least) remain a one-off show piece.
