Lambo confirms to re-enter 4x4 market

Lamborghini MLC

Long ago, in the eighties, a bull named LM002 roamed the streets, the first four-wheel drive model manufactured by Lamborghini. It’s no supercar! It’s a hardcore SUV produced by Lamborghini, known for producing high-performance grand tourers and sports cars.

20 years have passed, Lamborghini once again getting ready to unleash the big bull in a new avatar, which will be called the MLC. Yes, the reports have confirmed that the Italian supercar maker Lamborghini will re-enter the 4x4 market with an all-new, three-door SUV, and will debut the concept SUV at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show in China and hopefully beginning production from 2015.

Lamborghini has been trying to keep the information regarding the MLC confidential. However, some leak from the parent company has forced to admit that the SUV project has gone beyond the concept car.

The Lamborghini MLC will be based on a platform that underpins the likes of the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, VW Touareg and new Bentley SUV. The SUV’s total weight would be below 2,000kgs and Carbon-fibre construction would be used to reduce the weight of the SUV. The same engineers who worked on the Aventador are working on the SUV.

Unlike the Aventador and the Gallardo, the upcoming SUV will not be a rear engine... Surprised? This Lambo SUV will be front engined! With the engine same as the Gallardo, catering the 5.2-litre V10 engine producing 584bhp.

That’s all for now, let’s just wait and see what the big bull is up to. With growing trend and the demand for SUV’s in India let’s not get our eyes popped out when the MLC comes our way, like the other big boys have done.
