2003 Lamborghini Murciélago Convertible Concept

Lamborghini unveils first 2003 surprise Concept Car for the Detroit Motor Show

Automobili Lamborghini officially opens its Fortieth Anniversary by presenting a ravishing proposal, dedicated to true Italian supercar fans, at Detroit Motor Show.

The Lamborghini Concept Car was designed by Luc Donckerwolke, Head of Lamborghini Design. It continues and exalts the Barchetta concept, an open car of Italian tradition. This Concept Car has a more exclusive, aggressive and extreme design compared to the Murciélago, from which it derives and compared to which is lower by 136 mm.

Its muscular design that interacts with aggressive outlines, makes this Concept Car a total new proposal that heightens the standards of the Lamborghini Design language.

2003 Lamborghini Murciélago Convertible ConceptAn uncompromising car – as in Lamborghini tradition – inspired by the mythical open racing cars of the Fifties that used to race the Targa Florio or in the Carrera Panamericana.

An extreme and exclusive car also in its upholstery: the streamlined headrests integrate the mobile air intakes and the asymmetrical leather cladding – the right hand side being in a different colour and material compared to the left hand side – thus enhancing the driver oriented cockpit so as to make it a real 'Pilot Oriented Driving Machine'.

Another feature worth noting is that different structural parts of the chassis have been re-designed to ensure an adequate torsional stiffness even though roofless.


The Lamborghini Concept Car displayed in Detroit continues the tradition of the famous open 12-cylinder models of the 'House of the Bull': from the 350 GTS to the Miura Roadster, up to the Diablo Roadster.
