On September 16 we pulled out this image of a Lamborghini teaser. The vehicle shown, or at least its rear diffuser, tail pipes and parts of its rear wheels is a GT. So says Inside Line. According to a Lamborghini insider, the Italians are preparing something of a four-door GT which will be unveiled to the world at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. Luxuries will not be spared on the car, which is to be based mainly on the Audi A8 platform.

What it goes up against are the Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide, and to a certain extent BMW’s super four-door GT based on the CS Concept and Audi’s own A7. While all this may be true, we reckon there is space for a two-door coupe instead of four, saving weight but obviously compromising on practicality as well. It could also be Lambo’s answer to the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano rather than the GTs mentioned above. While we are assured that it is not a super SUV, we still wonder if Lambo, as an exclusive maker of super cars, would gain much by entering these segments of the market. But then again we wondered the same thing about Porsche and its Cayenne back then.
