The Lamborghini Estoque is a one-off concept four-door sedan created by Lamborghini in 2008.
The Lamborghini Estoque is a one-off concept car built by Lamborghini. Unlike current production Lamborghini cars, which are mid-engine two-seat supercars, the Estoque is a four-door sedan.
The Estoque was introduced at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. It is the first front-engine vehicle by Lamborghini since the LM002 utility vehicle. It is described as a "concept for a $230,000 four-door sedan". It currently houses a 5.2 litre V10 engine from the Lamborghini Gallardo, although there has been speculation that this could be replaced by a V12, V8, or possibly even a hybrid or turbo-diesel engine, as suggested by Lamborghini's Brand Director, Manfred Fitzgerald.
As with other Lamborghinis, the Estoque derives its name from the sport and tradition of bullfighting: An estoque is a type of sword traditionally used by matadors.
It was reported on 22 March 2009 that production plans for the Lamborghini Estoque were cancelled. Lamborghini executives responded to this by stating that the Estoque had not reached the production planning stage and that the decision whether to produce the Estoque or not has been delayed due to sales and marketing considerations. Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini's chairman, has since indicated that a four-door Lamborghini is likely, stating that response to the Estoque showed opportunities for Lamborghini outside the supercar market. However, Winkelmann also stated that Lamborghini does not have any plans to manufacture the Estoque and that it was only a concept vehicle.
The Lamborghini Estoque is unlocked at 85 stars.
The Lamborghini Estoque was added in the Lunar New Year Update as a high-end Class B car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1226
- MAX rank: 1525 (+299)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1685 (160)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +54
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 459
- Upgrade rank percentages: 15/45/15/25
- Speed Modifier: 91.60%
- Nitro Efficiency: 7/13/17
Similar to the Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, the Lamborghini Estoque's performance focuses on top speed; it can do 285.7 mph/460.0 km/h at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit. The Estoque's rate of acceleration is above average; it only accelerates better than the Chevrolet SS. The Estoque, however, does have great handling and drifts better than the Kepler Motion, thus giving the car an advantage in twisty tracks like Nevada. Additionally, the Estoque has among one of the best top speed stats in Class B, again making it similar to the Silver Lightning. The Estoque's nitro efficiency is also similar (albeit slightly inferior) to the Silver Lightning's, at 8/13/18 compared to the Silver Lightning's 7/13/17. Overall, the Estoque is a car that can compete on virtually all tracks.
In multiplayer, though, this is where the Lamborghini Estoque shines brightly – it is great in multiplayer and is usually seen around the 1450~1570 range. Given its huge upgrade rank increase and huge Pro rank, the Estoque can be tuned to greatly outrun cars with either similar or equivalent ranks; if tuned to 0505 5050 (= B1531), it can reach a real speed of 281 mph/452 km/h without even crossing past 1550. A tuning of 0500 5050 (= B1456) allows a real speed of 272 mph/439 km/h with a Tuning Kit. However, due to the introduction of better Multiplayer cars such as the Aston Martin Vulcan and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 the Estoque is very rarely, if ever, seen in Multiplayer.
With the new matchmaking system added in the Fifth Anniversary Update, the Estoque is still a poor choice as it cannot compete with the McLaren MP4/8, Apollo Intensa Emozione, and Mazda RX-8 Special Edition.
The Lamborghini Estoque counts towards the Running of the Bulls collection. A total of 1,250,000 is awarded when both versions are completed.
The Lamborghini Estoque had an original buying price of just 950,000 that was later updated to 950,000 or 6,200 in the Enduro Update before being finally changed to 4,175 in the Fall Out Boy Update. Upgrades cost 2,642,900 while Pro Kits require 1,402,650, 13 of each Class B Parts card, 4 V10 Engines, 8 Initial Tech cards, 8 Early Tech cards, and 12 Mid-Tech cards.
