Lamborghini has announced it will introduce a new concept car at the Paris Motor Show that will open its doors to the press in less than two weeks.
The company is keeping its lips sealed until the show car is formally unveiled, but it has published a dark, enigmatic teaser image that shows the silhouette of a sports car with a rakish windshield, a spacious cabin and pronounced haunches. The sketch is accompanied by the phrase, “once perfection is achieved, you can just double it.”
The teaser shot appears to suggest that Lamborghini’s next concept will offer seating for up to four passengers. It could be based on an existing model like the Huracán or the Aventador, or it could be a new model altogether. What is certain is that the silhouette depicted in the teaser image does not match that of the four-door Estoque concept that Lamborghini presented at the 2008 edition of the Paris show. Plans for a full-size sedan aimed at the Aston Martin Rapide have not been resurrected.
Although pure speculation, the most likely scenario is that Lamborghini’s mysterious concept will preview a 2+2 coupe, a setup the company phased out when it axed the Jarama in the mid-1970s. Introducing a four-seater model would allow Lamborghini to fight head-to-head against the Ferrari FF.
