I don’t know about you, but I need a quick escape to fantasyland.
The humanitarian situation in Japan is heartbreaking, and the nuclear crisis there gets more terrifying as each day unfolds.
I won’t look to the economy or my mutual funds to make me feel better, and I can’t afford the gas to go on a therapeutic drive. But I did find something that helps, at least momentarily, to get away from reality and provide hope that, one day, things will get better.
That hope is in Italy, and it’s funded by Volkswagen. Lamborghini is planning a series of all-new ultra-expensive vehicles, which can only mean that things will turn around… even if only for a few select people. Keep reading for a peek inside Lambo’s product plans for the coming years, and hope you’re lucky enough to be among the folks it wants to reach.
Now that the Aventador is officially unveiled (and sold out), the Raging Bull is looking toward its next masterpiece. And the one after that. And then one or two more for good measure.
According to InsideLine, next off the production line could be a version of the Sesto Elemento concept car, which you may remember from the 2010 Paris Auto Show. This is the car regular Lamborghini owners will aspire to own.
After that we could see the production version of the Estoque sedan concept, which would likely share some parts with the next-generation versions of the Porsche Panamera, Audi A8 and Bentley Continental. Cool. Even cooler is the coupe version that could accompany it.
Naturally, we can expect to see countless versions of the Aventador, too, hopefully a Spyder and a Superleggera to tear up the pavement.
For those of us who would require an “entry-level” Lambo, we’d be graced with a Gallardo-replacing car, possibly called the Cabrera. There’s nothing officially known about that car yet, but no doubt we’d see as many variants of it as the Gallardo has spawned.
And if that doesn’t make you feel better, at least temporarily, nothing will.
You’ll sleep better knowing new Lamborghinis are in the works, right?
