Lamborghini Asterion leaked in print ahead of Paris debut

Attached Image The first purportedly leaked images from an Italian magazine of Lamborghini's new vehicle for the Paris Motor Show are on the web, and they closely echo the model's silhouette from the teaser. However, there's no official mention of a name to confirm that this is being called the Asterion, as rumored.

The profile image (right) definitely suggests this is the same model that Lamborghini is previewing for Paris. It features the same slightly arcing hood and roof, and it has a rear air intake behind the door. The shape also seems to support the belief that this concept has a 2+2 seating arrangement to echo earlier Lambo models like Espada.

According to Autoblog.nl, which has posted the images, the vehicle may use a hybrid V10 with three electric motors to produce in the neighborhood of 900 horsepower. Furthermore, it claims that this might be just one of two concepts that Lamborghini is bringing to the Paris show. For now it's still a mystery, but all should be revealed on October 2 for the vehicle's unveiling.

Hmm...I dunno. Doesn't look as bonkers as I've become used to with Lambo models. In fact, it almost looks derivative - I see more than echoes of the LFA in the front fascia design. The rear looks familiar too, but I can't seem to place my finger on it.

 

I concede that with aerodynamic requirements being of paramount importance, all "supercar" designs will ultimately converge toward uniformity - but marques should still be able to find some key design feature that lends them distinctiveness. Not seeing that here. Sorry, not a fan of the styling. I'm sure the performance will be bonkers enough, though.
