Lamborghini Estoque latest

Published: 30 September 2008

'A new chapter in the history of Lamborghini' – that's the claim accompanying the latest teaser shot of Lamborghini's Paris motor show concept car.

Officially the new concept will be shown for the first time on the evening of the Paris show, but details of the car have already started to leak out onto the internet. The concept is apparently a four-door super-saloon called Estoque, after the short sword matadors use to kill the bull at the end of a bullfight.

So when will we see the Lamborghini Estoque?

The Estoque is tipped to go into production as early as 2009, but don't expect any car until at least the start of the next decade. If the public's reaction at Paris is good and the Estoque gets the green light, it could share the aluminium platform of the Audi A8. Suddenly the battle between the Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera just got another contender.

Come back to CAR Online tomorrow for the first official pictures of the Lamborghini Estoque, when the concept is unveiled at the Volkswagen Group’s ‘Driving Ideas’ event in Paris.
