The exotic carmaker called Lamborghini has no plans of offering a new entry-level model to slot below the current Huracan.
If the life of its SUV remains undecided at the moment, story one thing is for sure, Lamborghini will not be developing a new entry-level model. Or this is at least what a new report is telling us, quoting the carmaker’s boss, Stephan Winkelmann, who is saying that such a model will mean entering a highly competitive segment which is dropping the prices of cars to less than 200,000 USD. If a new sports car is ruled out at this time, the carmaker’s official has hinted the fact that Lamborghini may be introducing some more affordable derivatives in the future. The statement is coming after McLaren has unveiled the 570S and Ferrari is rumored to introduce a model smaller than the California T.
Keep in mind that Lamborghini is currently offering two basic models, the Aventador flagship and the more affordable Huracan. The latter has been introduced back in 2014 as a replacement for the Gallardo and it has been designed by Filippo Perini, being offered in a two-door coupe body style, with a mid-engine and an all-wheel drive layout. This is related to the new generation of the Audi R8, just like its predecessor. Power is coming from a 5.2 liter V10 engine, with 602 HP (449 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque, connected to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission. It needs 3.2s to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) and it can go up to 325 km/h (202 mph).
