Lamborghini to build a new “everyday car”

May 25th, 2011 by Darren Cottingham

After a recent press event rumours that Lamborghini will build its Estoque sedan have sparked up again. The cause?  Lambo’s chief executive, Stephen Winkelmann, has stated that a third model line was under development.

Winklemann went on to say “It has to be an everyday car. We want to have a car which is able to be used on a daily basis.” He wasn’t kind enough to give clues like which segment the new car would compete in, but he did indicate that it would benefit from collaboration with the VW Group. He also confirmed that the car would take about four years before it reaches showrooms.

Suspicions are running high that the future vehicle is the a production version of the Estoque concept, which was originally unveiled way back at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. If the Estoque does reach production it’s likely to share underpinnings with the next-generation Porsche Panamera, Audi A9 and possibly a Bentley four-door coupe.
