It was hinted not long ago that Lamborghini would be bringing a couple of brand new baubles to the Geneva Motor Show. Speculation was that one would certainly be the Aventador Roadster, but the other was more difficult to predict – the standard cries being a production version of the Sesto Elemento, a new sedan or a crossover. Well, we still can't be sure what else is coming to Geneva, but if the magazine scan at the Teamspeed forum can be believed – it comes from Italian mag Quattroroute – a new crossover will be heading our way shortly after the Switzerland expo.

According to the article, Lamborghini will be getting an SUV based on the Audi Q7 platform (just like sister-brand Bentley is expected to do), and it will be revealed at the Beijing Auto Show in April. The ostensible codename is LB 736, and while the official engine spec hasn't been nailed down just yet, we hear it'll be a V10 or electrically assisted V8 with somewhere around 700 horsepower.

The body is reportedly standard Lamborghini-issue aluminum and carbon fiber, with aims of a curb weight under 2,000 kilograms (4,400 pounds), and the completed project will go on sale in 2015. There's a suggestion that it might also come to Geneva instead of Beijing, but since the image is a Photoshop – and, frankly, most of this is speculation – don't be suprised if what we see now is not exactly what we ultimately get... whenever it debuts.

      people who criticise sports car manufacturers like Porsche and Lambo for building SUVs are eejits, cause these are the cars that deliver the money for a future 911 or Avenatdor!

      I have seen the LM002 and that is a bad old monster, So I trust them to make something equally as mad.

      who ever did this rendering - Porsche should have hired them to design their potato-shaped suv a long time ago. pretty good reinterpretation of basic design elements.

      To be perfectly honest, I think think this looks much better than the Cayenne.

        That's really not too hard to do.

      I would much prefer the Estoque to any Lambo SUV, it's just so damn sexy. Although lets be honest, any Lambo SUV will be eaten up by Sheikhs in oil-rich countries.

        Any Lambo gets eaten up by Sheikhs in oil rich countries. They buy 5 each, and at least 4 have special tasteless colour schemes/custom trim. But Lamborghini shouldn't bother promoting this in anything other than Arabic.

          Lamborghini's largest markets are the U.S. and China.

      I'd much rather have an Estoque with suicide scissor doors (you're selling a car for 300,000, make it happen). And hell, I wouldn't mind a station wagon variant either. A sedan drives far better than any SUV.

        comparing the design of this to the LM002 is a travesty. It had real chunky SUV looks and would eat hummers for breakfast.

      It will probably sell in Dubai.
