New details of the Lamborghini Estoque production version

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

After we saw the Lamborghini Estoque Concept at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, here comes the first details of the future production version will be built by the end of 2011.

If the plans will remains unchanged, the new 4-door coupe from Lamborghini will be powered by the same 5.2-liter V10 engine found also on the Gallardo delivering about 500 hp or more and 610 Nm of torque and connected to a 7-speed twin clutch gearbox.

Of course, the manufacturer takes in consideration also a diesel version (Lambo seems to take the green while Ferrari say that it will never use diesel engines) as well as a V8-powered version.

The pressure is already on us to do something significant to lower CO2. We will never offer our super-sports cars with diesel engines, and we will never resort to turbocharging for those cars either; to do either would betray our heritage and customers, and for Murcielago and Gallardo we can make the savings in other ways said Lamborghini Chief Engineer, Maurizio Reggiani.

But the opportunity is there to develop a turbocharged, maybe even a diesel engine for Estoque, and since the car could be well-priced and could sell in quite large numbers for us, a big chance for us.

No Lamborghini will ever emit 120g/km, but still we have to improve our figures and make progress.The new flagship sedan of the Sant Agata-based manufacturer will be capable to hit 186 mph or 300 km/h, more than enough if we consider its purposes.

Also the price will be less than 185,000 euros or $239,000. But until 2011, we will see the new Porsche Panamera which will definitely set a new standard on the auto market.
