I know, I know, it's just a concept.   :p

Quote
Industrial design enthusiast Iulian Bumbu of Romania turned up this design study of what a future Lamborghini might look like. The concept is called Lamborghini Insecta and it is inspired substantially by the world of insects. Structurally the concept is made of carbon-fiber. It is 4.3 metres long, 1 metre high and 2 metres wide. The two-seater study also has a wheelbase of 2.65 metres. Bumbu says the same powertrain found in the Gallardo applies to his concept car.

"The idea," explains Bumbu, "was to create an extreme race-oriented supercar with a style that introduces softer and more organic lines and integrate them into the geometrical style of Lamborghini."

The exoskeletons of insects gave Bumbu the idea for the external structure of the car. He also tried not to deviate much from Lambo's new design language. What would Lamborghini Brand and Design Director Manfred Fitzgerald's response to this concept be?

"I tried to apply these types of organic movements and translate them into Lamborghini's style so that when you see the car, you can immediately recognize it as a Lambo," Bumbu said.

im interested to know
are there any entirely new projects in the pipeline for lamborghini?

the gallardo and murcielago seem to have been around forever
the reventon, limited to 20, is essentially a murcielago which debuted in 2001
the gallardo debuted in 2003

I guess before that the only model was the diablo and that lasted 11 years

I'm pretty sure we'll start to see info on the new V12 platform before the year's out.  I think the Gallardo has one more major model increment before a new "baby" Lambo will be coming.

(pure speculation)

Murcie replacement is due next year I've been told. I think the 560-4 will get Superleggera-ized before it is replaced (2 years after the Murcie replacement possibly...)

That Insecta is ok. Can't see it ever being made though.

None coincidently. :D


Clue is in the first sentence:
"Industrial design enthusiast Iulian Bumbu of Romania turned up this design study of what a future Lamborghini might look like."
Nothing at all to do with Lamborghini. Not going to happen.

Yeah - hopefully not too many people are confusing this with an actual Lambo concept, it's just some random 3D CGI software uni student.

Other comments about the future Lambo models are nothing to do with this...
