Lambo Boss: No Retro Cars, Ever

Lamborghini's Germanic capo di tutti cappi has spoken: There will be no retro-themed cars from Sant'Agata, period. That means no Miura based on the historical concept shown in Detroit this past year (pictured) no Espada, speculated seven ways from Tuesday morning on these and other pages, and no LM002 redux. Boss Stephan Winkelmann said recently, "Retro design is not what we are here for. So we won't do the Miura, even as a limited edition." Winkie left open the possibility of a 2+2 or an SUV in the future but none that would revive any past badging. According to the UK's Car magazine, cars in the works include a LP640 roadster, coming later this year, and stripped-down versions of the Murcielago and Gallardo, with a possible rear-drive version of the latter. Here's to hoping the ghost of Lamborghinis future lets us in on something soon. [Gallery]
