Official - Lamborghini SUV confirmed by Audi, to be shown at Beijing Motor Show in April 2012

A senior official at Audi confirmed that the Italian car maker is all set to launch dramatically styled and luxuriously equipped SUV/crossover concept.

The SUV concept is set to get its first public airing at the Beijing motor show in late April. The production version will go on to join the successor to today’s Gallardo and the recently introduced Aventador in what will be at least a three-strong Lamborghini line-up in 2016.

"I can't comment in detail but the speculation in the press is largely correct," an Audi manager said when questioned about reports outlining plans by Lamborghini to gauge public response to a successor to the famed LM002 with a new SUV concept.

Conceived as an upmarket rival for the likes of the Maserati Kubang and soon-to-be-confirmed Bentley SUV, the new Lamborghini is set to be sold in small numbers approximately 1,500 cars an year.

Nothing is official, but it is suggested that the 5000mm-long four-seater will have a retuned version of the Gallardo’s 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine. A hybrid version is also envisaged. It is said to combine the standard V10 with an electric motor and a lithium ion battery pack.

The car has an internal codename LB736. The high-tech construction will be picked up by Lamborghini to ensure that its new SUV/crossover comes in at less than 4,400 pounds.
