The Lamborghini SUV has been recently confirmed as being for real by a senior Audi manager, after some images with the concept have leaked in an Italian magazine.
Our colleagues from autonews.com are saying that the images might be just speculative but one thing is for sure, the Lamborghini SUV exists and it will be officially presented to the public this year, in China, at the Beijing Motor Show. Even if we don’t have the name of the Audi senior manager, who announced that the Italian crossover isn’t just a rumor, we know for a fact that it’s close to be unveiled.
“I can’t comment in detail but the speculation in the press is largely correct”, said the Audi manager when asked about a successor to the famed Lamborghini LM002, according to our source.
The Lamborghini SUV is expected to be powered by the same engine as the Gallardo, the V10 unit, which will generate a total output of 575 horsepower, but besides this, a hybrid drivetrain is also rumored to enter production in 2015, with 700 horsepower. The concept version of the Lamborghini SUV will make its official debut at the Beijing Motor Show, China, in April during the press days, between 23rd and 24th.
