Lamborghini certainly aren’t resting on their laurels, having just smashed the Nürburgring record with its new Huracan Performante, the Italian Supercar maker has the new Urus being launched later this year, its first SUV since the LM002 back in the 80’s. We reported recently that Lamborghini was looking at the possibility of a fourth model after the Urus is launched, many seeming to think it would introduce a more affordable car as entry into the brand but now it seem’s Lamborghini’s CEO has hinted that a four-door GT model might be the next model to join the family.
Lamborghini has already looked at this possible market once before, in 2008 it revealed the Estoque concept, a four door supercar at the Paris motor show. CEO Stefano Domenicali now says once the Urus SUV reaches the market, his next goal for the company is to crack five-digit annual sales. Last year, the company sold 3,457 Huracans and Aventadors and the Urus is expected to at least double that figure, leaving Lamborghini looking to add a fourth model to push it past the 10,000 mark.
Speaking to Australia’s CarAdvice, Domenicali stressed that only once Lamborghini finds stability with a three-model lineup will it consider adding a fourth.
“When this first wave that concludes around 2022-2023, more or less, we will be stable, then it’s our vision that we are already thinking of what will be the next step for the world of Lamborghini – so what will be the right way, if we are stable enough, to get to 10,000 cars?”
Domenicali hinted the fourth model could pull from Lamborghini’s long history of four-seat GT cars like the Espada and Urraco.
“GT cars, four-seaters — heritage gives us some ideas, but it’s up to us to think and move in some direction. Today we are not ready, but we are already thinking to see what will be the technical needs. Will, in 2025, a super SUV cannibalize a 2+2 or GT? We don’t know yet. We need to prepare for different scenarios.”
