Lamborghini Ferruccio Car concept is rendered by Mark Hostler who is a transport design student at Sraffodshire University. Actually this concept is part of his course assignment and it is a great blend of past and future designs of Lamborghini. The admin of universities gave the task to the students that they had to develop an anniversary edition since Lamborghini is going to 50 in next year. For the Hostlers, it was indeed a great opportunity to showcase his talent and skills so he came with this design.
When you first look the car then you grab an idea that this concept is more than an inspiration from the company’s headline V12 cars. It seems that the creator is not only inspired from the V12 but also from feminine lines of Miura. The rear, hood and front screens are designed on the base of Countach while the round shapes of front and rear wings of this concept car are made after getting a close look of Miura.
Lamborghini Ferruccio utilizes both aggressive styling and engineering. The style of it is quite similar to a jet fighter. The designer knows very well that Lamborghini has to fulfill the strict emission regulation therefore he developed a power plant that helps the car to retain its V12 while also work as an environment friendly machine. Fuel consumption will be reduced to a great extent with the mean of direct injection and a computer controlled camless valve system.
Although Mark Hostler is a student yet he comes with an innovative design of the car. This concept presents a unique blend of new design and hi-tech engineering with the company’s history. No one can believe that this design is showcased by an inexperienced designer.
