Mystery Solved: Lamborghini Urus Four-Door Coupe Concept set for Paris   ...and its heading for production

Quote
Last week Lamborghini teased the world with a couple of small detail images of a mystery concept set to be unveiled. It is true most of us were left scratching our heads analysing what little evidence we were presented with, but the usually reliable folks over at autonews have confirmed with its inside sources that it will be a four door coupe. To top that off we can also reveal it will be called Urus (meaning large cattle) after Carspyshots user erzhik uncovered Lamborghini had registered the name with the trademark office.

The model will not only be a concept, but a preview of a production model that is in the pipeline, it represents a huge gamble for the supercar maker, diversifying their business model to compete in a formidable battle with the Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera.

The Gallardo and Murcielago model lines sport a rear engine setup, but this new four-door will place its engine at the front of the vehicle, just behind the front axle. It is believed the Gallardo's 5.0-liter V10 power unit may struggle to fit into the smaller engine bay meaning we may see a new engine unit with a smaller displacement introduced.

Lamborghini apparently plans to sell 3,000 units of the four-door coupe each year, a figure which would send their annual sales figures through the roof. In the first half of 2008, Lamborghini sold just 1,309 vehicles.

This mystery Lamborghini model that is set to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show has been an interesting affair. It all started with the release of an initial teaser image showing the rear of the vehicle focusing on the huge twin exhausts, a second soon followed showing a small shot of the side profile of the model. Now a third teaser shot has been unearthed by a Lamborghini enthusiast forum showing a third shot of the model, this time it is of the rear tailight. You will notice the diagonal line going through the lights, this is where the boot lid joins to the rear body, a fact that confirms the engine must be housed at the front of the vehicle.

WCF insiders have already had the opportunity to see full press images of the concept, we can definitely confirm it is a four door coupe to compete with models such as the Aston Martin Rapide. However, our earlier reports that it will be called “Urus” have proven to be false, we are unable to tell you the full name yet, but we can assure you, there isn't long to wait before Lamborghini launch the first full press images.

Still going with 2 door, too much curve on that bootlid to be a sedan.
