Aficioandos have been wishing for the front-engined Lamborghini Grand Tourer to return for decades. And in case you're wondering, here's why: imagine modern-day versions of the Espada or Jarama, which would allow you to share the Raging Bull joy with others, but without having to cope with the disconnected driving experience any SUV ultimately delivers.
Last time Sant'Agata Bolognese showed real intentions of brining the front-engined machine back in its showrooms was in 2008, when we were treated with the stunning Estoque concept (think: an Italian Porsche Panamera). However, with the crossover craze having taken over meanwhile, the Urus occupied the production slot of the Estoque.

Nevertheless, the Italian carmaker has recently talked about the possibility of producing a GT, be it in four-door or two-door (still a 2+2) form.

You see, Lamborghini sold 6,750 vehicles last year and its short-term target has been set at 8,000 units - now that the Urus production has reached full capacity, this goal will undoubtedly be reached.

Well, to remain a small volume manufacturer, a status that brings benefits such as emission level exemptions, Lamborghini needs to remain below 10,000 cars per year and there would be room for a fourth model in its lineup.

Of course, one might be tempted to believe that the Aventador, Huracan and Urus will be joined by a second, smaller SUV. Nevertheless, that probably won't be the case. From the price justification to the fact that such a machine would theoretically outsell the Urus, there are plenty of arguments against it.

So perhaps Lamborghini will come up with a Grand Tourer after all. And, until we get more clues on the matter, you can check out the rendering below, which portrays a continent-blitzing Lambo.

P.S.: While we're talking Raging Bull trends, here's an interview with Lamborghini EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) CEO Andrea Baldi, with this covering the changes that take place over in Italy.
