Lamborghini chief executive Stephan Winkelmann has announced that the exotic car marque will add an “every day” model to its lineup.
Speaking at the Reuters Global Luxury and Fashion Summit, Winkelmann said, "We are going to have a third model. It has to be an every-day car. We want to have a car which is able to be used on a daily basis."
As yet, no final decision has been made of which segment the new car will sit, although it looks likely that the car will be a four-door sedan based on last year's Estoque concept car.
“We have opportunities outside the supercar business, and we showed that with Estoque,” told Autocar. “It had a more enthusiastic response than we had expected. It was the right time to see if the brand could go outside of supercars. Even now, people are still e-mailing me about us making the Estoque (ABOVE).
“We really have a choice when it comes to an additional model: an SUV or a four-seat four-door," Winkelmann "And for me the SUV is a no-go. It doesn't exist in our price segment, and it's not a real luxury car.”
With the decision in place, he added that the company would need approximately four years for the third model to make production.
