Lamborghini issued this line drawing of its Paris show car
Autocar's artist's impression offers a clue as to how the car might look
The Sant'Agata car manufacturer has issued a line drawing of the car, together with the cryptic statement: "Once perfection is achieved, you can just double it".
This could imply that the car marks a revival of Lamborghini's plans to expand its range with a 2+2 model that would echo the 400GT from the 1960s.
Back in 2008, Lamborghini used the Paris motor show to show off a four-door, four-seat concept called the Estoque; the company was keen to put it into production but the worldwide recession put paid to those plans.
Although it seems unlikely that the new Paris car will be a four-door – Autocar's artist has extrapolated the line drawing to show how it could look – a 2+2 would fit Lamborghini's plan to expand its model range beyond the staple sportscars for which it is best know.
The off-mooted SUV, previewed by the Urus concept, will arrive in 2017.
The manufacturer is tight-lipped about the identity of its Paris concept, although it recently trademarked the names 'Asterion' and 'Encaste'.
Intriguingly, it also filed a patent for a hybrid drivetrain. The four-wheel-drive system uses an electric motor to power the front wheels and a front-mounted engine to power the rear wheels.
It was thought that this system would first be incorporated into a hybrid version of Lamborghini's SUV, due to enter production in 2017, although it could also find its way into the Paris concept.
