Lamborghini has put a sedan on ice in favor of an SUV.
The SUV, which debuted as the Urus concept in April at the Beijing auto show, hasn't been approved by top management at Volkswagen AG. But the project is expected to get a green light. The United States and China figure to be the largest markets for the SUV.
Meanwhile, the Estoque concept sedan has been axed, or at least delayed, because executives don't think the brand can sell an ultraluxury four-door in the current economic climate.
Gallardo: The sports car will be redesigned in 2013 or 2014 and will share an architecture with the new-generation Audi R8.
Sesto Elemento: The limited edition supercar with a carbon fiber body will go on sale next year. Only 20 will be produced.
Aventador LP700-4: A roadster version is expected to debut at the 2013 Detroit auto show and go on sale later in the year.
A GT concept riding on an extended wheelbase is likely to debut at the 2013 Geneva auto show but hasn't been approved for production.
Crossover: Lamborghini is expected to approve a vehicle based on the Urus concept that debuted at this year's Beijing auto show. Production would begin in 2017. The Urus would use the VW Group's large crossover platform, which will underpin the next-generation Audi A7 and Porsche Cayenne.
The four-wheel-drive vehicle likely would get a twin-turbo gasoline V-8 engine and a dual clutch transmission.
