The incorporation of Lamborghini into the Volkswagen Group has certainly done a lot for their drivability, but we wouldn’t exactly call a Gallardo or Aventador an “everyday supercar.” But according to reports quoting the company’s affable chief executive, Stephen Winkelmann, Sant’Agata Bolognese is set to add a new range of models to deliver exactly that.

The Lamborghini CEO was speaking at a Reuters conference, where he declared that a third model line was under development – one that “has to be an everyday car.” Although he would not confirm in which segment the new car would compete, he did indicate that it would benefit from synergies within the VW Group.

The declaration is being widely reported as confirmation of a production version of the Estoque concept, a sensational four-door show car that Lamborghini unveiled way back at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. The Estoque’s production is tipped to share underpinnings with the next-generation Porsche Panamera, Audi A9 and a new Bentley four-door coupe.
