A full size clay model of the concept S was first constructed
at the start of 2004 however work on the car was overtaken
by the need to get the Lamborghini Murcielago
Barchetta and Gallardo
Spyder into production.
Early 2005 work resumed on the concept S supercar and
the car was unveiled at the Geneva motorshow in march.
The car is based on the Gallardo Spyder chassis with a
modified bonnet, engine cover and bumpers. The bonnet
features a retractable rear view mirror mounted in between
the two cockpits basically stating 'I don't really care
what's going on back there, I'm not there".
The Lamborghini Concept S supercar is powered by the Lamborghini
5.0 litre V-10 used in the
Lamborghini Gallardo Coupé. However the Concept
S car is 75kg lighter and more aerodynamically efficient
than the Lamborghini Gallardo so performance figures should
be around 4 seconds to 60 and 200 mph flat out.
