    Production Lamborghini SUV To Arrive In 2017

    The long-rumored Lamborghini SUV concept will make its debut at next week’s Beijing Motor Show, but it will be few years before we see a production version.

    Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told German Newspaper Handelsblatt, the SUV could become the third vehicle in the lineup by 2017 to help the brand become profitable.

    "We definitely need a third line in the mid- and long term. An SUV would be the first Lamborghini for everyday use, not just for the race track or weekends. We would have the opportunity to win new customers."

    Lamborghini has been in the red since 2009 and is under pressure from parent company Volkswagen to become profitable.

    Volkswagen hasn't made a decision on whether a production model will see the light of day. Winkelmann told the paper he hopes Volkswagen makes a decsion sometime this year.

    "It usually takes 48 months until an all-new vehicle arrives at dealers, so the new Lamborghini would not be available to buy before 2017."

    Wow... that's a long way out there, considering that I'm sure its going to share a lot of parts with other VW SUVs... the Touareg, Q7 and Cayenne.
