According to a recent report, a potential SUV model of Lamborghini hasn’t been approved for production yet.
Speaking to Car Advice, the company’s Asia Pacific general manager, Andrea Baldi, commented the model still need to be green-lighted by the Italian brand’s owner – Volkswagen Group. “For us, the matter of convincing the VW Group is a different challenge,” he said at the dynamic launch of the Lamborghini Huracan at in Sydney. “There are a lot of brands – everybody is going in to SUV, except Ferrari maybe – Rolls-Royce, Bentley also, everybody’s announcing SUVs. But I think nobody is really still expressing what, in 2012, the Urus presented: this kind of sportiveness, this kind of powerful brand, already so sporty, associated with an SUV.”
Baldi also revealed, if the model ever goes to production, it will be positioned in a completely new niche with no direct rivals. “But if we do the SUV, I think we will be by far more successful than Aston Martin, and we will be, in any case, positioning ourselves in a niche that doesn’t exist. This is my impression”.
