The Lamborghini Asterion concept was one of the stars of the Paris Motor Show but Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has downplayed the possibility of a production version.

Speaking to Maxim, Winkelmann described the Asterion as a "technological demonstrator” but said "we’re still not interested" in hybrid models. As he explained, “It’s not meant to go on the racetrack. The acceleration is good and the top speed, but in handling it would be out-beaten by the others." He summed up his feeling by saying the Asterion is "more a hyper-cruiser" than a hyper-car.

Despite downplaying the possibility of production, Winkelmann said the company could make a one-off model with the 6.5-liter V12 engine that powers the Aventador.
