Lamborghini thrusts its four-door Estoque forth

Paris Motor Show 2008 Lamborghini has been teasing us over the last couple of weeks with teaser shots of its latest concept car. Now the company has let the bull into the china shop: a four-door sports car called the Estoque. (Now updated with interior shots.)

Take that everyone! (Part I)
The first four-door sedan-style car from Lamborghini, the Estoque, will, if it makes it to production, be taking on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, Aston Martin Rapide, and Porsche Panamera.

Take that everyone! (Part II)
Traditionally, Lamborghini's cars are named after a certain aspect of bull fighting, whether it be a bull itself, a matador or a piece of bull fighting paraphernalia. The company's latest concept car stays true to the company history because an estoque is, apparently, a rapier sword, just under a metre long, used by matadors.

What's under the hood?
Unusual for a Lambo, the Estoque's engine is located underneath the front bonnet instead of behind the seats. What's lying under the hood, however, is still a bit of a mystery. Lamborghini is talking vaguely about using either a V10 (from the Gallardo), a V8 or, horror of horrors, a turbo-diesel.

Long, wide and low
At 5.15 metres long, the Estoque is about the same length as a Holden Statesman. It is, however, wider — it's almost two metres across — not to mention significantly lower, at just 1.35 metres tall.

Open house
With most surfaces swathed in leather or hewn from metal, and with a grey and creamy white two-tone scheme, the Estoque has the classiest and most inviting interior ever made by Lamborghini.

Entertain yourself
There are front and rear entertainment systems, on the left and right respectively, featuring an LCD screen each. The control system seems to be a take on Audi's MMI (Multimedia Interface) controller, with a more exotic, jet-fighter style look. This, of course, is not accidental as Audi owns Lamborghini.

Look into my eyes
Armed with LEDs, as well as other lighting technologies, all car makers are now out to give their cars unique lighting signatures. Audi has led the way with its use of LED driving lights to create interesting shapes, and this has filtered across to Lamborghini who have given the Estoque's eyes a unique W-shape.
