Spy Shots: Lamborghini LMX SUV

Lamborghini could have a successor to the original LM002 if the prototype in these latest spy shots turns out to be the latest test-mule from the Italian supercar manufacturer. Although the prototype is dressed in the sheetmetal of a Porsche Cayenne, the widened fenders and lowered front-end suggests that this is no ordinary SUV.

Earlier reports suggested that Porsche’s next-gen Cayenne would be smaller and sportier than the current model but this test-mule is clearly larger. Rumors that it could be a new SUV model for Bentley are also unlikely to be true given the speeds the prototype has been seen reaching around Germany’s Nurburgring.

Based on a modified version of the Cayenne platform, the new Lambo SUV will likely feature the Gallardo’s V10. This could be followed by a smaller 4.5L V8 model and possibly a diesel variant running Audi’s 5.9L V12 TDI.

Lamborghini’s immediate plans will see it launch a new Murcielago-based-supercar at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show and possibly a new V8-powered entry-level Gallardo.

  1. Whatever that car turns out to be, I want one.

  2. Whatever happened to the term "FOCUS"... :(

  3. WHY DON'T THEY JUST CALL EVERYTHING THEY MAKE A VW? THATS WHAT IT IS? Lambo is the last of the brands to be VWnised into clones of the VW brand, very sad.

  4. That's not the Lambo, it's Porsche. You can tell it by the badge or the shape of the badge to be honest. They are similar, but this car is a face-lifted Cayenne.

  5. sorry, didn´t read the text through. Quickly looked for numbers, unfortunately...

  6. Lamborghini SUV with diesel engine, shit, that sounds sad. Very sad

  7. Is that really so bad? If it lets Lamborghini make more money and come out with better cars then thats good, isn't it. The Cayenne brought Porsche piles of money, this could do the same for Lamborghini.

  8. sad is the correct word....redo the LM002!!! why rebadge the cayenne/toureg!! a sad vehicle for sure...bummer!
