Lamborghini is expected to enter the $250,000-plus crossover segment with the Urus in 2017.
The vehicle would share a Volkswagen Group platform and target the U.S. and Chinese markets.
Lamborghini had considered a four-seat car but apparently has chosen a crossover based on volume projections.
Gallardo: A concept version of the redesigned sports car is being shown at the Frankfurt auto show this month. The production version, which will go on sale early next year, is expected to share an architecture with the new-generation Audi R8.
Aventador LP700-4: A roadster version of the carbon fiber supercar debuts in the fall.
Venenos: Three copies of the $3.9 million offshoot of the Aventador are being built this year in celebration of Lamborghini's 50th anniversary. The mid-mounted V-12 engine produces 750 hp. The Veneno goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 221 mph. All three cars will be delivered by this fall.
Crossover: Lamborghini is awaiting approval of a vehicle based on the Urus concept. Production would begin in 2017, using the VW Group large crossover platform that will underpin the next-generation Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne.
