So it looks like its a front engine, i hope if it is a concept that it is a lightly disguised production car.

As for whether it will be a 4-door coupe or 4-door hatch, i hope its a coupe coz the Porsche is a hatch and it doesnt looks good, a coupe like the Aston is the way to go

I'd say 4 door saloon, AS Rapide-style.

I'm with you. A front-rear 2+2 fits within the brand's heritage and would expand their appeal beyond the "new money" crowd that tends to buy the mid-engine cars. I don't think Lamborghini needs a four-door and may risk a "me too" on what could be a very limited niche, set to be served by Porsche and possibly Audi.

Ultimately a slightly more conservative Lamborghini option would be a welcome addition to their product line, just as Ferrari's new Cal Spider will be soon.

A true 4-place coupe perhaps with rear half doors??? would be an obvious addition to the line. If Porsche were not in the VAG mix, I would say that a 4 door Lamborghini would also make sense to go against the Rapide.

With the A7 in the works, it would make a lot of sense to have a Lambo derivative, at relatively low development cost. Surely some of the A7 mules were actually Lambo mules.

Rear half-doors, Mazda RX-8 style would be awesome.

not sure if anyone posted this:

Urus was a very large type of cattle that was prevalent in Europe until its extinction in 1627.

Judging by the name, it looks like it's going to be one really big car.
