We’ve seen it happen earlier this year when a rumor went around for a Lamborghini Countach homage, countless independent designers created some amazing looking, albeit non-official virtual 3D renders on how they would do a 21st century Countach model, and granted, some looked really nice, one was even considered being the official model from Sant’Agata for some time, but in the end, the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 turned out completely different, to say the least.
And while we’ve seen some amazing one-off concepts from the in-house design studio at Lamborghini, like the Terzo Millennio or the Asterion to keep it in the electric or hybrid vibe, some of the most aggressive looking designs have come from outside of the Sant’Agata region, from individuals that know their way around 3D software and use their expertise to create very impressive, futuristic models featuring the Raging Bull logo, and while some might be a little, or a lot, over the top, others actually look quite feasible.
So let’s take a look at some interesting virtual Lamborghini concepts I found online recently:
Lamborghini Cimbareto LPT 1000-4
When talking about the successor of the current Lamborghini Aventador series, with the Ultimae being the final chapter on this amazing V12 ICE powered production model, I came across several independent proposals, one of which is this 1,000 hp creation from César A. Olivera-Latorre seen below:
There is some Lamborghini styling DNA to be found on this Cimbareto, which is the name of a famous bull in traditional Lamborghini fashion, César took inspiration from the true classics for his future model, the straight lines are derived from the Lamborghini Countach and Lamborghini Bravo according to the designer.
Naturally, this car comes with the trademark upward-opening doors, but also with an adjustable rear wing that rises when required, just like the Aventador has, the overall design is a combination of sharp lines and organic styles, and while we all know the upcoming Lamborghini flagship will be a V12 hybrid model, I’m not sure what the ‘T’ in LPT 1000-4 stands for, Transverse perhaps, but that would make no sense unless Lamborghini plans a very small displacement V12 that is rotated 90° compared to the current Aventador for fitment as seen on the classic Miura.
While he was at it, César did design a Roadster version too, and I have to admit, she doesn’t look all that bad:
A little more subtle in the paint finish, and boasting a classic, five-hole wheel design, the Cimareto Roadster comes with a foldable hardtop that folds down behind the seats, with no panels to remove manually and store at the front.
The same designer, César A. Olivera-Latorre also did a more aggressive-looking model he called the Lamborghini Armado, and while this render does show some amazing fins at the front and a strange-looking rear wing treatment, this one does come with the large Y-shaped front driving lights, which is probably what we’ll be seeing on the actual Lamborghini Aventador replacement too.
But what’s even more impressive about this Armado design, those two vertical fins on the front can be retracted when speeds are low, just like the rear wing, which rises from being flush with the bodywork when not required, not that’s a very innovative way of adding stability at high speeds.
Other than that, this Lamborghini Armado concept looks really smooth and very low, but with just enough aggressiveness it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to actually see this as the next V12 flagship from Sant’Agata, but this is still a non-official design study.
Now this one is different, not really intended as a look at a possible Aventador replacement, but more a concept inspired by the Egoista and the Vision GT, this is a single-seater model designed by Valentino Rajan, the Lamborghini Furia is designed specifically for the Gran Turismo virtual driving game.
Inspired by the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, Tajan created a stunning racecar with a jetfighter style ‘canopy’ opening to allow entry into the single, central-mounted seat, and while we may never see something like this on the open road, it is with designs like this that we push the boundaries of car design, and show us what is possible when there are no rules or regulations.
Lamborghini Matador EV
Sulivan Oh designed this electric Lamborghini Matador EV model, more a GT style model instead of a low riding supercar, which is actually what Lamborghini is working on for their fourth model in the lineup, in 2025 or later, we will be seeing an all-electric GT model from Sant’Agata, something in-line with the classic Espada, taking the Estoque concept from the shelve and offering the first-ever electric Lamborghini.
Note the very high shoulder line on this design with a steeply raked windshield and low roofline on this Lamborghini Matador EV, and while I do like the design of the wheels and the overall aggressive design, I guess the Lamborghini GT we’ll be seeing in a few years might not look like this in the end.
As we might expect, the name Matador would be used by multiple designers for their future Lamborghini concept, which is why Frederik Steve Kristensen called his design the Lamborghini Matador, without the EV suffix as seen above, which leads us to believe this one still comes with an ICE engine, but probably a hybrid to future-proof itself.
Now this one isn’t a GT, this is a supercar, if not a hypercar, just look at how low and wide this car is designed, and the combination of a green body with dark, probably clear carbon fiber parts below the waistline clearly puts this outside of the comfortable, luxurious Gran Turismo roam. Just take a look at that massive rear diffuser and those wheel wells that are completely open at the rear.
There might be a little too much going on with this design, it does look a bit cluttered from some angles, but you can’t deny you will like twice when you see this one parked at your local restaurant.
The Lamborghini Forsennato
This design from Dmitry Lazarev might remind us of the Lamborghini Veneno, and you might be right to think the designer was inspired by that LeMans racer look, and while this render dates back to 2018 already, I think it still deserved a spot in our list here, this Forsennato boasts such an animal-like aggressiveness to her overall design, this is a Raging Bull.
It might be a little too wild to be a Lamborghini V12 flagship production model in the end but for some strange reason I rather like this one, and if you loosely translate Forsennato into English, it means ‘madman’ … I’ll leave you to make up your mind about that name.
Lamborghini Navetta Volante
Let me start by stating I really loved the Lamborghini Estoque concept shown in Paris, a front-engined, four-door, four-seater super sedan from Lamborghini, the perfect daily driver for the week with an Aventador in the garage for the weekends, but Lamborghini went the SUV route instead and canceled the Estoque.
But it seems an evolution of the Estoque might make a come-back as the 2025 all-electric fourth model in the lineup from Lamborghini, and I wouldn’t mind if they took the design of the Estoque and modernized it, into something like Jamil Ahmed did when he designed the Navetta Volante seen here.
From the small cover we notice behind the front wheel we understand this is at least a hybrid, if not an all-electric design study, and while Jamil used several styling queues from the Lamborghini Sián, I still think the overall package doesn’t look bad, this could very well be an initial look at how a four-door Lamborghini of the future might look like a sedan.
The Lamborghini Urus Super SUV is selling like hotcakes it seems, and it’s an amazing model from Sant’Agata, but imagine taking the off-road concept in a slightly different direction, like this Lamborghini Xeno by Aven Shi, where Aven combines the off-road capabilities of the Urus with the supercar styling of the Huracán while adding the door opening style from the Aventador.
The result is an off-road capable supercar, with high ground clearance, all-electric powertrain, and low-slung supercar styling, especially the upward-opening doors, and the fact there are only two of them, makes this a rather radical concept, I’m not sure there is a market for a car like this, but make it a limited edition few-off and I’m sure Lamborghini would be able to find customers for it.
Another four-door concept, this time inspired by the superlative SV denomination on classic Lamborghini, but unlike a Super Veloce name, this design from Yamaev Alexander is called the Electroveloce, or EV, a fitting name for an all-electric Raging Bull that can seat 4 people inside a very low, extremely aerodynamic design.
This design takes the styling from the Murciélago SV and Aventador SV, and combines this into a very fluid four-door design, inspired by the V10 ICE powered Estoque, Yamaev created an all-electric model along the same philosophy, four doors, four seats, low and fast. At this time there are no renders showing the doors open, but wouldn’t it be amazing if this Electroveloce would use upward-opening doors as seen on the Portofino?
That style of doors on a four-door supercar wouldn’t make it into production most likely, but it’s always nice to dream, and on a virtual canvas, anything is possible.
If you think the Lamborghini V12 Vision GT is a radical car, take a look at this Lamborghini Supersonica designed by Roman Miah, which takes the Vision GT concept onto a totally different level, a single-seater, all-electric hypercar, in such an aggressive design that looks like a fighter jet at the rear.
Mark Antar took the original design from Roman and added a Roger Dubuis livery on top of the satin black body, making it look even more aggressive, the striped livery does suit the car amazingly:
The Lamborghini Supersonica is simply stunning, imagine this car with an all-electric powertrain in a lightweight chassis, being street-legal, that would literally be an F1 car for the road … I love it.
So that’s a small overview of various non-official Lamborghini concepts I found online, some look like they might be viable in the near future, others are so far-fetched they will remain 3D renders forever, and while I’m sure Lamborghini themselves will come up with an amazing successor for the Aventador and later on the Huracán, I really like looking at what independent designers come up with instead.
Let’s hope it doesn’t take too long before we’ll be seeing more spy shots of the new V12 Hybrid model from Sant’Agata, I can’t wait to see that car and create a bespoke virtual configurator for it, and if the Aventador successor looks anything like my earlier render seen above, I’m happy with that.
