    Lamborghini Estoque Wagon

     

    Every red-blooded car fan knows that wagons are the business, serving drivers and fashionistas far better than SUVs can. And after years of obscurity, the appeal has reemerged for blue-blooded car fans as well. Ferrari’s Geneva debut of the shooting-brake FF ups the ante for the prancing horse’s primary antagonist and raises the question, “Why not make the four-door Lamborghini Estoquefive door?” In the what-if rendering above, our artist takes that idea and runs with it, melding the Italianate RX-8ness of the Estoque with a dash of its four-place, hyperfastback forebear, the Espada. Even a knee-breaking Vegas bookie wouldn’t give you odds on this thing entering production in Sant’Agata Bolognese, but that’s nothing the aftermarket can’t fix—if the Estoque sedan actually comes to fruition.

    Lambo’s not in the hottest financial shape at the moment; the house that Ferruccio built (and which Audi rebuilt) didn’t even turn a profit last year, despite selling 1302 cars. Such financial circumstances for a manufacturer of luxury goods aren’t entirely unexpected during a downturn, and unlike their days as one of Lido’s old-country curios (Chrysler TC by Maserati, anybody?), the Italians have the Germans committing some serious juice to the bull brand. The company launched the Aventador LP 700-4 at Geneva, is working on a replacement for the “bread-and-butter” Gallardo, has hinted at the possibility of a production version of the Sesto Elemento concept from last year’s Paris show and finally, and perpetuated rumors that the Estoque may eventually happen. Lambo can’t let Ferrari have all the fun.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Lamborghini Estoque Wagon

    Not in love with it, but I don't necessarily sneer at it either.

    If they were to take it to production, I'd be surprised if they sold more than 100 copies.

    Sidenote: Lambo sold 1302 cars last year and did not turn a profit?

     I don't like it at all, I've warmed up to the FF but its an entirely different concept.

    Also: I know, no profit?! thats rough for such a company. but then again VW does pick up the slack in such a case. 


    Re: Lamborghini Estoque Wagon

    I'm surprised considering a few things.

    (1) The Murci was a fully developed platform. I'm sure all development and tooling cost had long since been amortized so any cars produced were profitable.

    (2) The Gallardo's costs, most of the major parts and shared with the R8.

    (3) The healthy profit margins priced into super/hyper cars.

    (4) The absurd prices for parts & service. 500% -1000% mark-up.

    (5) They don't have to play the dealer spiff and holdback game like the the mass market brands do.

     That's even worse than the FF...

     hideous!


    Re: Lamborghini Estoque Wagon

    Hideous is an understatement


    Re: Lamborghini Estoque Wagon

    OK with all these "hideous" comments I can't wait to hear how you all feel about the upcoming Panamera estate... since we know that Porsche just cannot allow any automotive niche to be unfilled by PAG (let alone filled only with Italian cars....)

    Re: Lamborghini Estoque Wagon

    Waite and see the final product Smiley These guys are making the best looking cars on the market for the last ten years, I´m sure the Estoque will blow the doors of the competition away in most important aspects.

    Re: Lamborghini Estoque Wagon

    Agreed

    Let's not forget that the VW Group is the new Lambo engineers. They are doing amazing IMO. Audi is nice, VW has sweet offerings, Lambo is now with functioning interior buttons and Porsche will be more hardcore than ever. They also have the Bugatti brand and whatnot.. This wagon has potential! It will certainly be more attractive than the FF i think.
