With a hybrid Lamborghini due to arrive in 2015 and the replacement for the Murciélago already well into development, one talented car designer has unveiled his interpretation of the next raging bulls.
Unlike most amateur car designs which – while impressive – are merely creations of fantasy, these two designs by Slavche Tanevski could actually feature design cues destined for the real thing.
First proposed in 2008, the Lamborghini “Ankonian” was one of three designs selected by the chief designer at Lamborghini to be turned into a 1/4 scale clay model.
“It took approx. 6 months to actually build the model and it was a great opportunity to try different possibilities concerning the surface management and the proportions. This how the design doesn’t look ‘artificial’, but mature, and due to the fact that we had constant support by Lamborghini and Audi Advanced designers, the final designs have professional touch.” said designer Slavche Tanevski.
Described as taking “the Reventòn style to the next level”, perhaps its most distinguishing feature is the lack of any discernible head lamps, instead replaced by a strip of OLEDs embedded beneath the folds at the front of the car.
Following the success of his first project, Tanevski then began work on what he envisaged a Lamborghini hybrid would look like – calling it the Madura.
“Doing a car more efficient and more nature-friendly, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be exciting, good-looking and fast. But in my opinion this new propulsion system should be represented on the looks of the car.”
Regardless of whether these designs make it into reality, it is at least comforting to know Lamborghini is taking notice of designs as radical as these.
