Lamborghini has issued an intriguing teaser for its Paris Motor Show 2014 stand… that appears to suggest a four-seat model could be revealed at the show.
With the strapline ‘Once perfection is achieved, you can just double it’, the firm has released a simple sketch that shows the outline of a potent-looking supercar.
Notably, it focuses on the windowline, which is different in profile to any current Lamborghini car on sale. This suggests the new model will be an all-new car rather than a four-seat version of the Aventador hypercar.
The new car could thus be a GT rival to models such as Volkswagen Group sister company Bentley’s Continental GT: four doors, two seats and a long, flowing roofline to elegantly cover them.
Lamborghini will officially reveal the new car, likely to be previewed in concept form, on Thursday 2 October at 09:50am. And if it follows usual Lamborghini tradition, we can expect a series of detailed teasers before then in the build-up to the show.
What, then, do you think Lamborghini has in store for Paris Motor Show 2014? Let us know what you think…
Lamborghini four-seaters: a brief history
Lamborghini has produced four-seat cars in the past, most notably with the 1968 Espada. It produced this four-seat coupe for 10 years and there have reportedly been several attempts at producing a successor over the years.
The firm also produced the cheaper 2+2 Urraco in 1973, and some are suggesting the new Paris Motor Show 2014 car could have a similar ‘occasional rear seat’ layout.
One thing it appears not to be is a four-door four-seater: Lamborghini showed a concept car called the Estoque at the Paris Motor Show 2008, complete with 5.2-litre V10 Gallardo engine, but interest in the project tailed off and the firm appears to be in no hurry to repeat it.
Lamborghini has also produced four-seat SUVs over the years – the radical LM002 HUMMER-type off-roader and the 2012 Urus luxury SUV concept. The sketch certainly doesn’t suggest an SUV follow-up is on the cards either…
