The rumor mill is kicking into overdrive as new details are starting to emerge about Lamborghini's upcoming crossover.

Auto Express is reporting the model will be introduced at the Beijing Motor Show as the MLC concept. It will reportedly have three doors and a front end that resembles the Estoque concept.

The crossover is slated to ride on a modified version of the platform that underpins the Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg. Details are limited, but the magazine says the architecture will incorporate a carbon fiber transmission tunnel and other lightweight features. Thanks to these changes, the model will reportedly weigh less than 2,000 kg (4,409 lbs).

Power could be provided by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces approximately 584 hp (435 kW / 592 PS). Eventually, there could be a hybrid variant with more than 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS).

If everything pans out, the model will be launched in 2015. Production could total 1,500 units annually and pricing is expected to start at roughly $200,000 (€151,195 / £127,650).
