The Lamborghini Estoque concept was revealed on October
1st 2008, just before the start of the 2008 Paris Motor
Show. Prior to its unveiling Lamborghini had released
a series of images which were designed to build up excitement
The Estoque is the first official Lamborghini concept
car since the Miura
concept was unveiled in 2006. And in complete contrast
to the Miura concept which was heavily influenced by past
Lamborghini models, the Estoque concept breaks new ground
for Lamborghini in almost every single way.
The 2008 Lamborghini Estoque concept is a 5.15 m (16.9
feet) long, four-door luxury sedan designed to compete
against the likes of the Porsche Panamera and Aston
Unlike the current mid-engined Reventon,
supercars, the Estoque is powered by a front mounted engine
driving all four wheels.
The styling of the Estoque is instantly recognizable as
belonging to Lamborghini. And while the car is not exactly
beautiful in the purest sense of the word, it is still
a striking vehicle. The extremely aggressive front end
is dominated by the massive air intakes either side of
the bumper underneath the slit-like headlights.
The rest of the Estoque is fairly conservative for Lamborghini.
The sides are uncluttered but still purposeful and powerful,
especially the rear arches which display a distinct bulge
over the rear wheels. The tail section features narrow
taillights neatly recessed into the bodywork, and a pair
of centrally positioned exhaust tips in the lower bumper.
The interior of the Lamborghini Estoque features four
individual sport seats with electric adjustment. The dominant
interior covering is Nappa leather.
The driver is presented with a large LCD display screen
which offers up vehicle and route information. A range
of formats are available for selection depending on personal
preference - a distinctive classical layout with circular
instrument dials, or an innovative digital display. The
Lamborghini Estoque is also fitted with a top-spec audio
unit and a sophisticated rear seat entertainment system.
A range of drivetrains are conceivable for the Lamborghini
Estoque, ranging from the V10 found in the Gallardo
LP 560-4, to a turbocharged
V8 derived from this V10. The economical options could
include a V8 with a hybrid module or an extremely high-performance
