Lamborghini is reportedly considering a somewhat softened supercar to complement its Aventador and Huracan models, eyeing off a launch date of around 2020.

Automobile Mag reports that the new model could be a 2+2 grand tourer with the engine up front, akin to the Aston Martin Rapide S or Porsche Panamera.

The Italian carmaker revealed long ago that it is working on its first-ever SUV, called the Urus, so the new GT could create a four-car line-up for Lamborghini by 2020.

By then, the Huracan (pictured, top of page) will likely be facing a significant upgrade; which includes plug-in hybrid power to improve its emissions output and distance it from the all-out Aventador (pictured, below), which will stay with V12 performance until its replacement arrives in 2022.

The GT may also carry a battery pack or two, likely matched with a turbocharged petrol engine of either eight or ten cylinders.

Besides Porsche’s MSB platform, the lack of a similar model wearing an Audi badge may kill any 2+2 GT project before it begins, and Lamborghini may yet decide on a repositioned model similar to the Huracan, but cheaper (to build and sell), to tackle the likes of McLaren’s Sports Series and improve sales volume.

For now, the Italian carmaker has confirmed nothing. Watch this space.
