Giugiaro’s design studio envisions its own Lamborghini crossover coupe and roadster at the Geneva show.
If the Urus concept didn’t strike you as how a Lamborghini SUV should look, ItalDesign has arrived in Geneva with its own interpretation. The design firm founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro (the man behind the Cala and other Lambo concepts) was bought by the same Volkswagen Group that owns Lamborghini, and borrows the name for this concept from the popular French freestyle acrobatics sport. The Parcour concept unveiled last night during Volkswagen’s preview event in Geneva is loosely based on the Lamborghini Gallardo.
As such, it packs the baby Lambo's 5.2-liter V10, sending 550 horsepower through a dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission to all four of its 22-inch wheels. Celebrating ItalDesign’s 45th anniversary, the Parcour has arrived in both red coupe and white roadster body-styles. Both ride on a lifted pushrod hydraulic suspension that bridges the gap between sportscar and SUV. 0-60 is quoted at 3.6 seconds (similar to the Gallardo). Like most post-VW ItalDesign concepts, the Parcour is more of a design study than a pre-production prototype, but could preview a different direction Lamborghini could take with its SUV.
