I think it's an SUV, with the high ground clearence. I'm hoping for something that looks like a jacked-up Reventon.

If indeed it is an SUV/Crossover of some sort, I hope it doesn't have the dreadful proportions of the Spyker D12 Peking-to-Paris. The fat supercar on stilts look is an epic fail.

That grill work design is oddly familiar. Wasn't it used in one of the lamborghini concepts made by Gandini or Giugiaro during the 70's? IIRC it was on a sedan or a 4 seat coupe.

Indeed. The first thing I thought when I saw the teaser pic was : Marzal !

I do hope this new Lamborghini will be a sleek 4-seater instead of another nonsensical SUV. I can't wait to see it in Paris.

edmunds follow up article...nearly confirms it to be a 4-door

says nothing shared with panamera
not inspired by Reventon
Audi designers helped out
Project was greenlit only 5 months ago.

I really think that Spyker could have done worse. They had to make a four door SUV that was still recognizable as a Spyker, and I think they pulled it off. But that's another story. As for that Lambo teaser pic, I'm getting really tired of having to see the same car in different colors every year, so I'm kinda crossing my fingers for both a 2+2 and an SUV.

Lambo has stated they will reveal 1 new product per show. so this is it until LA. and an SUV is probably the last thing they need.

According to Autoblog all this speculation may be much ado about nothing. They say they have reports that it is simply an LP640 Superveloce.

In ways, it makes sense... an all-new model from Lamborghini seems like a Geneva, maybe Detroit debut. It would really surprise me if they chose Paris to debut something as big as their first 4-door.

Although comparing the teaser to a rear shot of the LP640 shows pretty much zero resemblance, so that would be a pretty heavy styling change for an SV model.
