CEO also hints at an Aventador Superleggera

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has revealed that the company isn't in a rush to build a production version of the Urus concept.

Speaking with Auto Express, Winkelmann said “the Urus isn’t an immediate priority and won’t happen until 2017 at the earliest." He added, “To be honest, we don’t need it right now, as we have plenty of new cars available that are selling well and will continue to sell well.” He also said the crossover would have to be approved by the company's board of directors which hasn't happened as of yet.

In related news, the executive hinted an Aventador Superleggera is in the works. When asked about the model, Winkelmann said "The Aventador is a powerful car, but there is always more. We have a few ideas for this car…”

There is no SUV like this anywhere, especially with a V10. I think it would sell very well even with the economy. The Wall Street and Bank Cartel will still be receiving bonuses and Congress does not want to raise taxes so they will still be in the %1 so bring it on!

The only think I can tell about Urus is- ''Kill it, with a fire!'' Seriously if they will let this car to mass production I will never buy new Lamborghini because it will mean, that they are concerned more about profit and sales boost than their company spirit. In business it is not a bad think, but some product are known only because of company spirit they represent. Imagine Porsche building commercial Van... On other hand it wouldn't be very surprising if you know what I mean...

Estoque yes, Urus no. More to choose does not mean better. Quality of quantity, always.
