At the Geneva Motor Show, the House of the Raging Bull will present a new design study that renews a great Lamborghini tradition. Like the 350 GTS and the Miura Roadster before it, the Lamborghini "Concept S" is a unique car, an extreme and spectacular expression of the Lamborghini brand.
Created at the Centro Stile Lamborghini in Sant'Agata Bolognese by Luc Donckerwolke, Head of Lamborghini Design, the "Concept S" is his extreme interpretation of an "open car". Using the Gallardo as a basis, Donckerwolke drew inspiration from the classic single-seater racing cars of the past to create this latest design study.
The classic single-seaters did not have a traditional windscreen, but utilised the so-called "saute-vent" (in French: a sudden change in the wind) in order to direct air over the head of the driver - and so does the "Concept S". These devices divide the cabin into two distinct compartments, giving the car an aggressive and futuristic look and also creating a space between them that acts as an additional air inlet for the powerful engine, which is positioned behind the seats.
An electronically controlled, retractable central rear view mirror allows the driver - when required - to see what is happening behind the car. The aerodynamics of the "Concept S" have been optimised thanks to front and rear spoilers and a large rear diffuser.

this car would make a great addition to the lamborghini credentials as another all time great car. I think the bodywork on this car is amazing. I love that split wind screen, its original and a great idea that looks good as well as serving a purpose. The main downside to the car is the parts-bin engineering, not that i have a problem with the exterior its just that looking at the pictures i can see that the car posseses a gallardo interior which im not keen on as there are to many dials, nobs, buttons etc. so i think the interior needs a makeover.With these changes made and a healthy pocket i would DEFINATELY buy this car if it was produced and im sure many others would to. Please lamborghini BUILD IT.
besides the more aggresive looks and body.......it just sayd gallardo for me, and for aggresive looks, this is not where i would go.
