Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann has laid down the claim that any new models from the supercar maker won’t be following any retro cues. Even though the company’s most recent Miura concept (pictured above) that was displayed back in January was based on a car released 40 years ago, any new Lambo design will be on ”the edge.” According to Winkelmann, “retro design is not what we are here for. So we won’t do the Miura, even as a limited edition.”

There’s been talk of a new vehicle positioned above the Murcielago, pegged to be a Ferrari Enzo competitor, but as for the Miura, that car was dropped due to a lack of a business case. Winkelmann did however comment that a Lamborghini 2+2 or SUV vehicle was possible in the future, the latter of which is rumoured to be based on Audi’s upcoming Q5 platform and due in 2008.

In the meantime, expect the release of new vehicles based on the current range of cars including a roadster version of the LP640 and weight reduced versions of the Murcielago and Gallardo.
