Lamborghini is planning to launch an all-new four-door car that is expected to be launched globally by 2021, reported Autocar UK. The company is planning the new four-door car as it was a part of Lamborghini boss Stefano Domenicali’s plan to set out a roadmap after the launch of the Urus SUV, which will be launched in December this year. Lamborghini has already increased the production of the Urus at its plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese that also includes building a production facility that can be expanded further.
After the Urus, the next model in the pipeline is the new four-door car that will have a front-mounted engine and a four-seat layout. Internally, the four-door concept is called as the new Miura and will take its inspiration from the Estoque concept, which was revealed by the supercar maker in 2008. However, the production of the Estoque was put on hold as the company was developing the Urus SUV. Now, the car manufacturer is looking at the new four-door, four-seater concept to fill the gap between the Urus and Huracán & Aventador. One could expect the four-door car to cannibalise Urus sales but data suggests that Lamborghini buyers own multiple cars so sales shouldn’t be affected much.
Lamborghini is yet to finalise the Estoque-based four-door car as the company is investigating the possibilities of developing a carbon fibre platform that is likely to underpin other supercars in its portfolio. Competitors such as Ferrari and McLaren are already using carbon-fibre in chassis and other areas of their cars and have benefited from higher performance and efficiency due to the lower weight.
