Lamborghini has long intended to further expand its portfolio. However, this will not be profitable as long as sales do not reach a minimum of 8,000 units. Thanks to its good sales results, Lamborghini will soon be working on a new model that has been in mind since 2019, when the former CEO, Stefano Domenicali, headed the company.
According to Auto Motor und Sport, the unnamed 4-seater GT-type car is known to be the first pure electric Lamborghini and will be based on the SSP (Scalable Systems Platform), a unique new architecture from the VW Group.
The car is still in the development stage and from 2026, it will combine Audi’s VW MEB and Porsche PPE platforms into a single architecture. The first model on the new SPP platform will be VW’s Trinity project.
A sportier version of this platform will be used by Porsche, Rimac and Lamborghini. This Lamborghini coupe will likely offer a range of over 600 km (373 miles) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in around 3 seconds.
The Lamborghini GT concept is nothing new. The first 4-seater GT was the 400 GT, produced only 250 units between 1966 and 1968.
Then followed by Islero (1968-69), Jarama (1970-76), and Urraco (1973-79). Except for the Urraco, the others have a 3.9 liter V12 engine.
There was also an Espada which was produced between 1968-1978 and was powered by the same 3.9 liter V12 engine. The Espada and Islero replace the 400 GT 2+2, with the Espada being the more luxurious model.
Lamborghini has also introduced the four-door, four-seater sedan Estoque in 2008. It is 5.15 meters (18 ft) long and features a 5.2-liter Gallardo V10 engine.
In 2010 however, former and current Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann announced that the Estoque would not be entering series production.
