It would be amazing if this car ever saw the light of day.
We are only a couple of days away from the debut of Lamborghini’s second high-riding model in history. The Urus should become the brand’s best-selling model in the next couple of years, doubling the its annual sales and targeting markets like the U.S. and China.
But what’s next for the Sant’Agata manufacturer? According to an encouraging report from October this year, Lamborghini is seriously considering launching its fourth model early next decade, a four-door high-performance saloon.
Our exclusive rendering previews a possible look for this new model, inspired by the Estoque concept and the production version of the Urus SUV. If the project gets the green light, it will most likely be based on the Volkswagen Group's high-end MSB platform, which also underpins the latest Porsche Panamera and Bentley Continental GT. A final decision has not yet been made, as the supercar maker is also pondering a couple of other new model ideas, including a Miura-inspired sports car.
Most of all, the fate of the four-door saloon depends on how successful the Urus is on the market. Simply put, if it makes enough money for extra R&D activities, the super saloon will see the light of day at some point.
Sharing its platform with the Panamera means the vehicle could get the same 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, which is also powering the Urus, where it will be paired up with a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission with torque converter. With power of around 600bhp, it could become one of the fastest four-door vehicles on the planet, although the Porsche Panamera Turbo will want to have a say on the matter.
Lamborghini’s top priority by far at the moment is the launch of the Urus. So, take a deep breath, enjoy this rendering of a possible Lambo four-door saloon, and then cross your fingers.
