This is not exactly a tech topic but I’ve been fascinated by Lambos for a long time. In this article, we’re having a look at if there are any Lambos that can fit four, or even five people inside them.
Are there Lamborghinis with four seats? There are exactly 4 models of Lamborghinis that have 4 seats; the Espada, LM002, Estoque, and Urus. The first two are no longer in production, and Estoque was only a concept car. The only one that is still being manufactured is the super-expensive and exclusive Urus SUV.
Lamborghini Urus (2018 – )
Their first modern SUV is combining the soul of a super sports car with a body and functionality of an SUV. First introduced in 2012 at the Beijing Auto Show as a concept car, the Urus was shelved until 2017 and in 2018 it hit production.
You might be wondering why it has such a strange and divisive name. The name comes from Urus, the ancestor of modern domestic cattle, also known as the aurochs.
Unlike their 2012 concept car, the Urus is powered by a 641 hp (478 kW) 4.0 L twin-turbocharged V8. It is a well-known engine that powers some other cars from the VW Group, like the Audi A8, Porsche Cayenne and Panamera, and a few others. The engine is actually assembled at a Volkswagen plant in Hungary and subsequently shipped to the Lamborghini assembly factory.
Let’s talk about the back seats a bit. The back seats can be configured either as 2 individual sports seats, which is preferred, or as a three-person bench. This gives the Urus a capacity to seat 4 or 5 people.
The starting price point for a 2021 Lamborghini Urus is an estimated $215,000. If you want the only production Lamborghini that has 4 seats make sure you have this chunk of change in your pocket.
Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. is an Italian manufacturer of luxury sports cars and SUVs based in Sant’Agata Bolognese that was established by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963 as a direct competitor to Ferrari. The company had many ups and downs but is owned by Audi (VW Group) since 1999.
Lamborghini Estoque (2008 concept) [1 made]
This is Lamborghini’s one-off concept car built as a four-door sedan. The vehicle was first introduced at the 2008 Paris Motor Show as the company’s first front-engine vehicle since the LM002 utility vehicle. It had Gallardo’s 5.2-liter V10 engine.
The name Estoque comes from bullfighting and is a type of sword used by matadors. The production plans for the Lamborghini Estoque were, unfortunately reportedly canceled on 22 March 2009.
Lamborghini LM002 (1986 -1993) [328 made]
The Lamborghini LM002 aka Rambo Lambo, aka Lamborghini truck, was one of the weirdest cars ever built. It was manufactured between 1986 and 1993. It was part of the Lamborghini Militaria series of vehicles that were Lambos shot at making utility vehicles for the military.
Lamborghini Militaria vehicle models:
- Lamborghini Cheetah,
- Lamborghini LM001,
- Lamborghini LMA002,
- Lamborghini LM002,
- Lamborghini LM003,
- Lamborghini LM004.
Near the end of LM002’s production, the company created a hearse-looking one-off “estate” version for the Sultan of Brunei by enclosing the back area and raising the roof.
It is apparent from this that the company had serious ups and downs and that owners did as they pleased when they took over the company further dragging the good name through the mud.
Lamborghini Espada (1968-1978) [1217 made]
The legendary Lamborghini Espada was a 4-seat grand touring coupé designed at Bertone by Marcello Gandini. Espada was a bigger, and more luxurious alternative to the smaller and sportier Islero, and both Espada and the Islero replaced the 400 GT.
Marcello Gandini (born 26 August 1938) is an Italian car designer that is known for designing the Lamborghini Miura, Countach, and the Lamborghini Diablo.
The name “Espada” means “sword”, and is another bullfighting term that refers to the sword that the torero uses to kill the bull in the corrida.
There were three series of the car made. And there were rumors that a revival was being in the works. Closest to that was the previously mentioned Estoque that was a spiritual successor to the Espada.
