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.<br />

<br />

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.<br />

<br />

"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."<br />

<br />

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

<br />

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.<br />

<br />

"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."<br />

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.
