Lamborghini Aventador S, the latest launch of the Italian firm.
Without a doubt we are facing one of the most important statements of the week. Stefeano Domenicali, CEO of Lamborghini, has said openly that the Italian company is debating possibility to launch a fourth model to accompany the current Hurricane, Aventador, and very soon, the Urus. When asked about the new member who could join the family, the high office of the Italian company left the door open to a supercar compact.
“I Think that the answer to the question is possibly yes. However, by the time we need to make sure that our third model (Lamborghini Urus) will be sufficiently successful and stable that we can think of a fourth model”.
Taking into account the phenomenal growth of the SUV and, in particular, those of luxury and high performance, it is almost impossible to imagine a scenario in which the Lamborghini Urus may not be successful. Therefore, and once the Urus reaches the market and to ratify its commercial success, Lamborghini begin work on the fourth model added to their range.
Lamborghini Huracan Spyder, another of the models introduced recently.
But, what precisely type of model will we find? it Is evident that it is still a project “in diapers” whose future will directly depend on the commercial success of the Lamborghini Urus, however, taking into account the statements made by Stefano Domenicali, it is easy to understand the idea that they have in Lamborghini for this fourth model in its range.
Located a step below the Lamborghini Hurricane, this supercar compact will be positioned as the model of access to the range of the Italian brand (leaving to one side for focus and target customer the SUV that is about to arrive). In addition, this new model will reduce the 4.459 mm measured along the Hurricane. A supercar is a high-performance but dimensions still more compact.
There are those who point out that one of his main rivals will be McLaren 570S, although size will not be so. As we say, still there is not much information to go beyond this data that we’re counting it would be pure speculation. It is clear that if we take into account the opponents faced by the Hurricane and the Aventador, it is easy to catch a glimpse of a “thin line” by the move to this new model.

¿When it will come to the market? Is a long-term project, so in case of receiving the approval of the dome of Lamborghini, it is easy to go up to the year 2020, or even beyond to get to see a product of production and trade.
Some of the changes that Domenicali would like to see in the mark of the bull is that all of your models are mounted on a single platform, something that would help to reduce the costs of development and production. Something that will directly assist the launch of new models such as the compact high-performance that we’re talking about in this article. Despite this, Domenicali says that the power to sustain the full range of models on a single platform is an idea long-term. Also will seek to improve the distribution of components over the coming years to make more efficient the manufacturing process of all the Lamborghini.
