First Look: Lamborghini Caramelo concept

By Visordown News
Take a look at another stab at combining the Lamborghini name with a motorcycle


REMEMBER THAT awful Lamborghini motorcycle created in the mid-1980s by French design house Boxer?

Well, here's the latest take on a Lambo-inspired motorcycle, concocted by talented Romanian designer Laurentiu Trifescu.

Dubbed the 'Caramelo', the bike supposedly takes heavy styling cues from Ducati's 1198. But instead of using a V-twin motor to power the angular-looking sportsbike, Trifescu has opted for an in-line four motor for his drawing board creation.

Romanian designer Laurentiu Trifescu visualizes how a Lamborghini superbike could look like if the Italian supercar maker would ever consider producing one.

The name Caramelo comes, like in the case of most Lambo products, from a famous Spanish bull. This defeated a lion and a tiger in the Madrid arena in 1877. The animalís courage and strength impressed the audience so much that they yelled for it to be spared and his name is remembered to this day.

Following the true Italian spirit, the Caramelo is supposed to be a superbike built on a tubular steel frame with single-sided swingarm and powered by a powerful 1000cc V4 engine. The design meets the edge style of the Murcielago and Gallardo and it is characterized by angular lines and cleaner surfaces.
