The Lamborghini Concept S would be a radical car for any manufacturer, except Lamborghini. Cutting edge extroverted style has long been associated with the Lamborghini badge and the Concept S car is no exception.

Looking like two wingless fighter jets strapped side by side the Concept S is the brain child of Lamborghini's design chief Luc Donckerwolke. The original design was for a single seater however Lamborghini bosses dictated that the driver of a Lamborghini should always have a spectator.

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.
