Lamborghini to launch fourth mannequin by 2025
By Mark Smeyers on October 18. 2019 in LamboNEWS.
I used to be current on the press convention in Paris again in 2008 when Lamborghini confirmed the Estoque idea, a shocking four-door, four-seater mannequin that would have been a pleasant successor to the Lamborghini Espada … however when the Urus Idea was proven afterward, the choice was made to construct a Tremendous SUV as an alternative of a luxurious high-performance sedan.
Quick ahead 11 years and we’ve the Lamborghini Urus being offered in excessive numbers, over 6,000 have been constructed already, and with that success in thoughts Lamborghini is considering the long run, and a doable fourth mannequin within the line up … and that may very well be both a 2+2 or a four-door mannequin … so maybe we’ll lastly be seeing the return of the Estoque in a number of years … one other addition to the Raging Bull line will likely be not less than 5 or 6 years sooner or later, by 2025.
At this time we’ve the Lamborghini Huracan, the Aventador and the Urus being inbuilt Sant’Agata, however by 2025 each the Huracan and the Aventador could have been changed by a successor and more than likely the Urus could have acquired an evolution … into hybrid energy. Rumor has it the Huracan alternative will drop the V10 engine and can go V8 with hybrid energy, whereas the flagship successor ought to preserve the V12 engine, but in addition with added electrical motors … and everyone knows the Urus is ready to obtain a hybrid addition any time quickly.
This brings us to 2025 when Lamborghini may introduce a fourth mannequin, both a 2+2 or a four-door sedan … however more than likely this automotive will go full electrical, taking the J1 platform to Italy. At this time this J1 is used on the Porsche Taycan and the Audi E-Tron GT … each giant four-door automobiles … which brings us again to the 2008 Estoque.
None apart from Maurizio Reggiani, R&D director at Lamborghini, talked about this in an interview with Autocar … he talked about they need to begin engaged on this new automotive by 2021 in the event that they need to have it prepared for manufacturing in 2025, and it will take the Estoque Idea and produce it into the following decade by combining her design with the present Urus styling … which might make good sense as most producers which have each coupe, sedan and SUV of their vary present a standard home model over the whole vary.
Being a Lamborghini, the 2025 Estoque would have some severe efficiency, a 0-60mph acceleration under three seconds for example, and whereas going all-electric, a variety of greater than 350 miles (almost 600 km) needs to be doable with the evolution of batteries and electrical engines within the upcoming years.
When speaking to CEO Stefano Domenicali, Autocar picked up that Lamborghini may go down the two+2 route once more with this 2025 mannequin, so we could be seeing a two-door mannequin as an alternative, which might be a pleasant evolution from the unique 400GT 2+2 from the Sixties and the Islero and Jarama fashions, so again to the roots created by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963.
It will certainly be nice if Lamborghini would carry again the GT mannequin to Sant’Agata, bear in mind earlier than the Gallardo shattered all data, the Lamborghini Espada was the best-selling mannequin with over 1,200 items offered, so bringing again a real GT the best way Ferruccio meant will likely be an awesome homage, and who is aware of, in the event that they promote sufficient automobiles we’d even be seeing one other convertible mannequin from Lamborghini just like the extraordinarily uncommon 350GTS of which solely two had been ever constructed.
