Lamborghini Trademarks ‘Asterion’ Name Ahead Of Paris Motor Show0
Earlier this week Lamborghini released a teaser image of mystery car it’s set to pull the wraps off of at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in October. No one knew about the existence of the car prior to Lamborghini’s teaser shot, so as you can imagine, the internet rumormill has been spinning at full speed ever since it surfaced. Dutch website Autoblog.nl recently stumbled upon some information surrounding the car that might be more than just a rumor or speculation, though.
Lamborghini applied to trademark the “Asterion” name on September 15 with the Office of Harmonization in the Internal Market in Europe. The logo, which is to be applied to vehicles, toys, clothing and video games, features a lightning bolt logo through the ‘O’ in Asterion. This has led some to speculate the car will be a hybrid.
Autoblog also points out that Asterion is the name for a Minotaur in Greek mythology, which is a half bull half human type creature. This would follow Lamborghini’s traditional naming method, which names the cars after famous fighting bulls, such as Aventador.
Us and several other websites think the sentence which accompanied the teaser image (“Once perfection is achieved, you can just double it.”) is hinting that the car is a 2+2 layout vehicle. If this is a hybrid 2+2, that would be a dramatic step away from what Lamborghini is used to offering. We’ll have to wait until October 2nd to find out for sure.
