Lamborghini Concept S
Concept S was first unveiled at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show
in Switzerland. Featuring the Italian automakers most aggressive
styling to date, the Lamborghini Concept S is based on the Gallardo
and harkens back to the single seat roadsters of old.
Concept S was designed by Luc Donckerwolke, Head of Lamborghini
Design at the Centro Stile Lamborghini in Sant'Agata Bolognese.
The House of the Raging Bull is leading the running of the bulls
with this aggressive new design that separates driver from passenger
more than most other vehicles and contains no windshield, only a
'saute-vent' (French for 'changing wind') to direct air over the
heads of driver and passenger.
Concept S contains a 500 hp, 5.0 Liter V-10 engine with 510 Nm of
torque. The Concept S is an all-wheel-drive mid-engine vehicle with
6-speed manual transmission. Even though this "split-design"
may make conversations between driver and passenger more difficult,
it does allow for an optional air scoop to further cool the powerful
engine and also makes available a rear view mirror that pops up
automatically to check for traffic behind (or police).
of the car boasts streamlined headrests, asymmetrical leather
cladding and separate color scheme for driver side and passenger
side, accentuating the "pilot" experience for the Concept
S drivers. Unlike most concept cars
that never see the light of a showroom floor, Lamborghini has
stated that a production version of the Concept S will be available
sometime in 2007.
