Menacing Lamborghini-inspired automotives that perfectly capture the brand’s raging bull spirit

When it comes to luxury sports cars, Lamborghini is always at the top of the list! For decades, the automobile manufacturer has got our hearts racing with its menacing Automotives and their ingenious designs. From the original Lamborghini 350 GT to the Lamborghini Huracán STO, each and every model has been high on innovation, authenticity, and of course killer speed. Their cars have been a source of major inspiration for automobile designers and enthusiasts all over the world! The result? A never-ending plethora of Lamborghini-inspired concepts that’ll have you itching for more. From the Lamborghini Navetta Volante concept which is the Italian version of the Tesla Model S to a Batmobile-inspired Lamborghini – these groundbreaking concepts will have you wishing that Lamborghini adopts and turns them into a reality very soon!

1. Yale

Titled rather simply ‘Yale’, Wanoco4D mentions that the inspiration for this automobile came from both the Batmobile as well as James Bond’s car. Although one could argue that one source of inspiration really overshadows the other, the Yale does have a faceted, armored design that seems highly reminiscent of Christian Bale’s Bat-suit, with its chiseled, split-surface design. There aren’t too many details on the car’s specifics, especially considering it’s a concept, but a few observations include the car’s gullwing-style doors, the rear-hatch that opens outwards probably to allow Batman to make a quick vertical entry or exit, and a turret-gun in the back in one of Wanoco4D’s versions.

2. The Navetta Volante

With its edgy Urus-meets-Model-S design, the Navetta Volante concept is the perfect blend between Lamborghini’s raging-bull sports cars and a street-friendly high-end sedan. The concept comes from the mind of Jamil Ahmed, an automotive designer whose love affair with the Lamborghini brand started when he saw Diablo for the first time back when he was younger. The Navetta Volante, which translates to Flying Shuttle, comes with a 2+2 design (hence the term Shuttle) and feels like a cross between the Urus, and what Jamil cites as his true inspiration for the car, a lesser-known Lamborghini concept from 2008 – the Estoque.

3. The Xeno

Designed to be a rare type of Lamborghini, Aven Shi envisioned the Xeno as an electric hypercar that’s also meant to go off roads if necessary. Its ground clearance is marginally higher, given this ability, and when compared to the Huracan (at the end of the piece), the Xeno has a shorter nose and a longer rear. Unlike the Huracan, the Xeno has scissor doors that open to reveal the car’s two-person cockpit inside. The car comes with what looks like a two-part battery that sits right under the driver, and a four-wheel drive, giving you ample storage in the front as well as the back.

4. The Massacre Concept

The Massacre Concept aims at toning it down and creating a car that’s both futuristic yet true to Lamborghini’s visual language. The concept automobile boasts of a design inspired by the Russian Sukhoi Su-57, the first fighter jet to rely on stealth technology. Just like the fighter jet, the car boasts of a slightly pointed nose that helps to cut the air as the vehicle speeds forward, while carbon-fiber flaps located at the base of the car’s A-pillar help it maneuver just like a fighter jet would. The car even comes with a cockpit-style single seat to give the driver the impression of maneuvering a jet plane… but on land.

5. The SDAP

Rather mysteriously titled the SDAP, this little concept car from Mexico-based designer E. Maximiliano Salas was designed to be equal parts exotic and enigmatic… although its 80s automotive references are all too common.  With pop-up headlights that are a grand reference to a bygone era of supercars, the SDAP has a little Countach and Diablo, and a little ’84 F40 mixed into it, making it quite the eclectic beast.  The dark-ish rendering isn’t by accident either, Salas wanted his unusual concept to have a little waiting-in-the-shadows vibe to it, harking back to yet another phenomenon of the 80s, the reveal of the time-traveling DeLorean in the film Back To The Future.

6. The Marzal Concept

Designed by Parisian designer Andrej Suchov using Gravity Sketch, the Marzal concept is a confluence of sorts, created to be a vehicle that can shine on the tarmac but isn’t scared of leaving its comfort zone to dominate rough terrain. Its profile certainly captures the signature Lamborghini silhouette, with its iconic wedge-shaped design… however with higher ground clearance, a  larger rear, and bigger tires designed to handle rough roads. It’s quite rare to see a Lamborghini with a rear windshield, and the Marzal boasts of that too, although it does get blocked when you include the storage unit. With its aggressive design styling and that iconic yellow color, the Marzal looks every bit like something Lamborghini would make – a testament to the company’s strong visual language.

7. The Lamborghini LMXX2

Emerging out of a Mad Max-ian hellscape, the Lamborghini LMXX2 looks like it could outrun any of Immortan Joe’s minion riders, leaving them literally and figuratively in the dust. Hritzkrieg (who’s also in the running for the coolest last name) uses just three words to describe his design – Desert + Lambo + Future. He isn’t wrong, the LMXX2 looks rather futuristic, to begin with, and since Lamborghini’s already dominated the roads and even the water, this just seems like a natural progression at this point. I’ll be waiting for the Lamborghini hypersonic jets…

8. The SC18

The SC18 comes from Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse division, which literally translates to “racing team”. This car isn’t meant for streets, it’s meant for tracks, and it comes with a dominating design to match. Slightly a step down from Terzo Millennio’s absolutely aggressive style, the SC18 still looks like it would unleash hell on the track. The SC18 is a one-off model, crafted bespoke for a motorsports customer, in synergy with Centro Stile Lamborghini, the car company’s innovative studio that looks to further develop Lamborghini’s inimitable style through endless exploration. It features air intakes in the style of the Huracán GT3 EVO with side and rear fenders designed to look like the Huracan Super Trofeo EVO, while its headlights look distinctly like the Aventador (the taillights are a hat-tip to the Huracan too).

9. The Lamborghini E_X

An electric Lamborghini needs to be ferocious, but not in the same way a gasoline-powered Lamborghini is… a design brief Andrea Ortile hopes to demonstrate and explore with his conceptual electric Lamborghini E_X. Unlike fuel-powered engines, which have a reputation for being dirty energy, electric drivetrains are much cleaner, from a sustainability and impact perspective. This very distinction carries forward to the Lamborghini E_X, which comes with a clean, pristine design that’s characterized by two swooping lines that define its side profile. The E_X balances this clean minimalism very well with its signature raging-bull aggressive demeanor. The car’s aesthetic edginess isn’t too literal, but its incredibly slim headlights sure give it that angry appearance.

10. Forsennato

Designed as a tribute to Lamborghini’s incredible brand DNA and some spectacular-looking automobiles, as well as a reminder of all the good work the company has done developing their supercar aesthetic, this is the Forsennato, a conceptual car created by Dmitry Lazarev, that combines the best parts of Lamborghini’s designs from the past couple of years. At first glance, you see headlights that are a hat tip to the unconventional line-based headlights of the Terzo Millennio, while the entire front profile definitely reminds one of the Aventador with a little extra edginess. The taillights follow the design direction set by the Veneno and are carried forward with the Terzo Millennio.
