UPDATE (06/05): Lamborghini has confirmed that it will reveal the Huracan EVO RWD Spyder on May 7. However, it won't be a simple online reveal. Lamborghini will present the vehicle using Augmented Reality (AR). Apple AR Quick Look required to experience the AR.
In the words of Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali, the new model will 'complete our model range.' We wonder what could it be...
As large-scale automakers like Volkswagen, Skoda, Ducati & FCA are all set to resume production in Europe, Automobili Lamborghini too, has announced that it will open the doors of its Sant'Agata Bolognese factory starting 4th May.
Sharing his thoughts on the announcement, Stefano Domenicali (Chairman & CEO - Automobili Lamborghini) said, 'We are ready to restart with great energy, but also with strict protocols for safeguarding what is most precious to us: the safety of our people...we still have not won the battle against COVID-19. We will constantly monitor the contagion’s evolution and be ready to adjust our protocols as per the guidelines provided by the Italian government and the Emilia-Romagna Region.'
However, the restart of production activity isn't the biggest news to come out of the Lamborghini stables. Lamborghini's boss has announced that the company is also gearing up to reveal an all-new product on 7th May, which, in the words of Mr Domenicali, will 'complete our model range.'
While we are genuinely not sure about the identity of this new product, we do have a logical guess for what it could be. In the last week of March, Lamborghini had revealed some teaser images of its new track-only V12 hypercar testing on a circuit in Modena. Keeping in mind that this new product will complete Lamborghini's model range (which already has road-legal V12, V10 and V8 models), it only makes sense for the Italian marque to add a raging V12 beast to its model line-up that is purely meant for track use.
But there's also the possibility of it being a model 'based' on either the Urus (a road-legal version of the Urus ST-X) or the Huracan Performante - the Huracan Super Trofeo Omologato (STO). Guess we'll have to wait patiently for a few more days to know the final answer.
