Scheduled to premiere on August 18, the Lanzador features the kind of signature lighting one would expect from a Porsche rather than a Lamborghini. The front bumper, hood, fenders, wheel arches, and wheels are thankfully aligned with the automaker's current lineup, which comprises the Urus, Huracan, and Revuelto.
From the standpoint of exterior design, the side profile view leaves much to be desired, especially when it comes to the almost flat roof. The B pillars and C pillars aren't pretty either, but we're nitpicking here. Moving over to the rear, we're dealing with a hatch rather than a sedan-like trunk lid. In other words, the zero-emission super GT crossover thingy boasts three doors. The exposed rear wheels are interesting in their own right, along with the huge aerodynamic diffuser painted in glossy black.
Pictured in a fine shade of blue, the Lanzador sweetens the deal with a genuinely spacious cargo area behind the rear seats. Of course, the individual rear seats can be folded to maximize cargo space. Opening up the frunk reveals a lot of carbon fiber, along with a small compartment filled with a tailored luggage set.
Rather than the PPE electric vehicle architecture developed by Audi and Porsche, the production version of the Lanzador is expected to switch to the SSP. You can think of the Scalable Systems Platform as the successor to both the PPE and mass-market MEB, as well as the lower-cost MEB Entry platform.
The most recent of reports on the SSP suggests that VAG will premiere said electric vehicle architecture in 2026. Volkswagen Group chief executive officer Oliver Blume, who also serves as the big kahuna at Porsche, confirmed up to 1,700 horsepower for the Scalable Systems Platform. In other words, the most powerful applications of the SSP will feature three or four motors rather than the more conventional two motors.
Where does the Lanzador slot in Lamborghini's current lineup? Being fully electric, we can all agree that it's its own thing. On the other hand, it wouldn't be incorrect to consider the Lanzador a bridge between the automaker's supercars and the more practical Urus utility vehicle.
