Top 5 Lamborghini Concept Cars
Unlike your more common automotive manufacturers, there aren’t new Lamborghinis coming out all of the time. Instead, Lamborghini likes make their model reveals more momentous and rare as opposed to just doing slight model updates every year. Take the new Urus SUV, which was just unveiled recently. Lamborghini has been teasing us with the Urus for years now and has been building it up with different concept cars and little bits of info here and there.
What happens when two designers spend an afternoon watching a drag race between a Lamborghini and a Rat Rod?
You get the “Lamborghini Rat Rod.”
According to an April 22, 2014 article on Carbuzz, two friends and automotive designers, Pawel Wisniewski and Jan Slapins, found inspiration for their newest rendering in combining the two vehicles. Not only is the product an amazing rendering, but the design attempts to span and blend two very different aesthetics. Lamborghini, without fail, gives us some of the most contemporary, theatrical and dramatic flaring lines on their cars, while Rat Rods attempt to imitate or exaggerate the appearance of hot rods from the 1940s to the early 1960s. While the basis of each design is traditionally separated by nearly fifty years from the other, the rendering seamlessly blends the two eras.
Carbuzz further reported that Wisniewski was responsible for the initial sketches and Slapins did the 3D work. The concept utilizes a pushrod actuated suspension, a twin-turbo small block V8 and a six-speed sequential gearbox. To keep weight down, carbon fiber would be the ideal material for the chassis. According to the creators, they would like to try and keep the weight distribution to a perfect 50/50.
For now, the Lamborghini Rat Rod will remain a two dimensional rendering.
