2006 Lamborghini Concept S

At the Geneva Motor Show, the House of the Raging Bull will present a new design study that renews a great Lamborghini tradition. Like the 350 GTS and the Miura Roadster before it, the Lamborghini 'Concept S' is a unique car, an extreme and spectacular expression of the Lamborghini brand. Created at the Centro Stile Lamborghini in Sant'Agata Bolognese by Luc Donckerwolke, Head of Lamborghini Design, the 'Concept S' is his extreme interpretation of an 'open car'. Using the Gallardo as a basis, Donckerwolke drew inspiration from the classic single-seater racing cars of the past to create this latest design study.

The classic single-seaters did not have a traditional windscreen, but utilised the so-called 'saute-vent' (in French: a sudden change in the wind) in order to direct air over the head of the driver - and so does the 'Concept S'.
These devices divide the cabin into two distinct compartments, giving the car an aggressive and futuristic look and also creating a space between them that acts as an additional air inlet for the powerful engine, which is positioned behind the seats.

An electronically controlled, retractable central rear view mirror allows the driver - when required - to see what is happening behind the car. The aerodynamics of the 'Concept S' have been optimised thanks to front and rear spoilers and a large rear diffuser.

The House of the Raging Bull has shown the first driveable prototype of the Lamborghini 'Concept S' at the Monterey Concorso Italiano and at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in the USA.

The Lamborghini 'Concept S' design study premiered at this year's Geneva Motorshow as an extreme and spectacular expression of the Lamborghini brand. It was created at the Centro Stile Lamborghini in Sant'Agata Bolognese by Luc Donckerwolke, who drew inspiration from the classic single-seater racing cars of the past.

The astonishing amount of public interest at the Geneva Motor Show prompted the decision to build a driveable prototype in order to further gauge potential customer demand.

'The 'Concept S' represents everything that Lamborghini stands for. It is extreme, uncompromising and Italian,' commented Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. 'A production decision has not yet been made, though we were encouraged by the positive response to the driveable prototype at both Monterey and Pebble Beach.'

The driveable 'Concept S' prototype has only changed slightly compared to the original design study. For example, the so-called 'saute-vent' windscreens were re-designed for homologation reasons. The look of the car results even more extreme than the original.

They also create a space between them that acts as an additional air inlet for the engine, which is positioned behind the seats. And like the Gallardo, which serves as the basis for this stunning supersportscar, the 'Concept S' is equipped with a powerful V10 engine.
