The Lamborghini Estoque is a full-size luxury concept car model designed by the Italian luxury sports car and SUV automaker Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. Other modern concept cars developed by Lamborghini include the Asterion hybrid grand tourer coupe and the Terzo Millenio futuristic all-electric coupe.
The Lamborghini Estoque name comes from a sword used by matadors in bullfighting. The concept vehicle made its debut at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. It was presented with a V10 engine, though Lamborghini speculated this would be replaced by a V8, a V12, or perhaps a hybrid or turbo-diesel option. All in all, the Estoque was envisioned as a predecessor to a four-door sedan production model to be priced at around $230,000.
However, Lamborghini announced in 2009 that plans to move forward with a production version of the Estoque were canceled or, at the least, delayed. In recent years, Lamborghini has expressed interest in producing another four-door model due to the success of the Lamborghini Urus luxury SUV, but it won’t be with the Estoque.
