Sights and Sounds: Lamborghini Asterion Concept

At the 2015 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este Lamborghini turned up with a number of pretty special models, including a pristine Miura and the Lamborghini Asterion Concept, fueling the rumors suggesting they are putting together a production version of this hybrid super GT. So it’s probably a good time to take a closer look at the car and check it out inside and out and under the skin.

One way or another, the future of Lamborghini includes deviating from the company’s niche which is making super sport cars. Even if Lamborghini Asterion ends up residing in a museum as a show piece and never gets produced, we know that there is a Lamborghini SUV, called Urus, in the works. So we are going to have to wait until at least 2020 to see an all-new super car from this manufacturer.
