After Lamborghini's endless string of frustrating teaser shots, here, finally, are the full pictures of the Aston Rapide-rivalling four-seat Lamborghini supersaloon, the Estoque.

 

 


The concept sports a V8, but Lamborghini is incredibly open-minded about possible powertrains. The Gallardo’s V10 will be offered but engineering boss Maurizio Reggiani told CAR that a powerful turbodiesel or possibly a hybrid petrol electric drivetrain would probably also be offered.

‘We will do everything we can to cut the CO2 emissions of this car,' said Reggiani, revealing that Lamborghini has set a target of 300g/km, a chunky 25g/km lower than the lighter, sleeker Gallardo currently manages. So the one engine the production Estoque won’t have is the Murcielago’s V12, but it will have a dual-clutch sequential manual transmission.
