2009 Lamborghini Insecta Concept Design


(from Iulian Bumbu)  The project represents a personal vision of a Lamborghini 2 seater super sports car.

The inspiration comes from nature, and especially the insect world. I began by studying the different types of exoskeletons or armor that certain insects have.

I sought to apply these type of organic forms and translate them into the style of the brand so that when you see the car, you have no doubt that it is a Lamborghini. This type of armored appearance is especially visible in the rear and top views.

The dimensions of the car are:  4300 mm length (same as the Gallardo), 1000 mm height and 2000 mm wide, with a wheelbase of 2650 mm.  The body is carbonfiber and the car can use the same engine as the Gallardo.

The idea was to create a very extreme race oriented supercar with a style that introduces new soft and organic lines and integrates them into the geometrical style of Lamborghini.
