But spokesman confirms that a third model line is under consideration

Reports from the Italian media that a Lamborghini SUV will be unveiled at the Beijing motor show in March are "speculation", according to a company spokesman.

Italian magazine Quattroruote says the car, which is being billed as a spiritual successor to the LM002, will be based on the next generation Porsche Cayenne platform and feature styling influenced by the Aventador. According to the report, it would be powered by a detuned V10 sourced from the Gallardo, while a hybrid model is also possible.

When contacted by Autocar a Lamborghini spokesman said that the story was "speculation".

Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann has previously stated that the firm needs a third model line, however.

For some peculiar reason I can accept Lamborghini producing an SUV, probably because of the LM002 in it's past.

All I hope is that they use this heritage and make it as extreme and as outlandish as the original.



It's all about the twisties........

I just wish they would make the Estoque. Could never afford one but it's a gorgeous looking car!

    The DS 5 is hard to pigeonhole but it works as a package. Impressive French-style long-range cruiser, albeit at strong money for an unproven brand

    The 4C improves, and the Spider is a good conversion, but it remains dynamically troubled and absurdly expensive

    More traction and nothing separating Jag's monstrous V8 mouthpiece from your ears. It's the shoutiest, priciest F-Type on sale, but is it the best?
