What if the raging Italian bull named Lamborghini turned into an insect? The answer is this rendering created by a Romanian designer.
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.
