Default Lamborghini Insecta Concept

A Romanian car designer has come up with a new Lamborghini design based on, you guessed it, INSECTS!

Apparently, this is what he thinks future Gallardo's should look like. It's almost the same size as an LP560-4 and the design incorporates the same engine as well.

Maybe he should have changed the Bull logo to a Mosquito while he was at it?

It certainly looks futuristic. Very well designed; stylish and aerodynamic. One will run short of adjectives describing it. Good its a concept,Otherwise Id wonder who is going to afford the price tag in this recession?

It looks like...ummm...an insect. To be fair, does look very nice and aggressive, if a tad too sci-fi-ish.

The side profile looks great and so does the front. The rear looks a little fudged though

Nitin: I think you right.It does look like a leaf insect, a grass hopper may be.

This design looks great!
I like the color too.
By the way wouldn't this be the fastest insect on road.

Great concept, though the side profile is too similar to existent models.

Looking at the cars from the Lamborghini(starting from miura) the production models were also like concept vehicles. So it would not be a surprise thing this concept becomes a production model.

Saying that, I personally liked this design.
