Update: Official details of the Lamborghini Estoque Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

The Lamborghini Estoque represents a concept specially developed for the 2008 Paris Motor Show and according to the manufacturer it is a Lamborghini that you have never seen before, the first sedan in the history of the brand (we have an interesting question, The concept was developed due to the coming of Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide?).

The concept gives precious information regarding the future of the Sant'Agata based manufacturer demonstrating the innovation, creativity and the design flair of the Lamborghini brand. As you know everytime Lambo is building a car it names it after famous bulls, this time is almost the same thing, Estoque, represents a 90 centimeters sword used in a bull fight by the Matador.

Although Estoque is only a concept, according to the manufacturer it represents one of the several possibilities for a third model, after the Murcielago and Gallardo LP560-4. Despite its height of just 1.35 meters, the concept is surprisingly spacious being the perfect travelling companion.

The secret of the space available at the interior, lies in its very long wheelbase (3.01 meters or 9.88 feet) but also in its dimensions: 5.15 meters (16.89 feet) long and 1.99 meters (6.53 feet) wide and as we said with a height of only 1.35 meters (4.43 feet). Under the hood we could find the highly-acclaimed Lamborghini ten-cylinder found on the Gallardo LP560-4 connected to an all-wheel drive system. The system is typical for all the Lamborghini vehicles but the 22 inch wheels (23 inch on the rear), with their new five double-spoke design, also do their part in delivering power to the road. 

As an alternative, the Estoque could be powered by a turbocharged eight-cylinder derived from this V10 but a variant would be a V8 with a hybrid module or an extremely high-performance TDI, like the 500 hp V12 TDI engine found on the Audi Q7 V12 TDI.

One more thing we should tell you: the engine is not located in front of the rear axle, as in the Gallardo and Murcelago or in the Reventon, this time we find it behind the front axle.

Ok, enough with the engine, let's get in! At the interior, the dominant material on the four individual seats is the high-quality Nappa leather . The cockpit features a large-area LCD screen displaying vehicle and route information. The big question still remains, What are the chances to see the Lamborghini Estoque on the streets?
