The Lamborghini Embolado concept is the creation of Luca
Serafini, an Industrial Design student at the University
of Parma in Italy.
The Embolado concept is based on the dimensions of the
Gallardo, which helps to give the concept some credibility.
Although as the Embolado is an independent design the
chances of production are zero.
The name of the Lamborghini Embolado comes from a Spanish
festival called the "Toro Embolado". The festival
involves releasing a bull into the streets with a burning
ball attached to its horns. Although now it is common
for someone to carry a bull shaped framework instead of
using a live bull.
The design of the Lamborghini Embolado is characterized
by aggressive lines, sharp edges and short front and rear
overhangs. The dominating side air intakes just forward
of the rear wheels give the car a variety of interesting
shadows and highlights around the rear arches and side
sills. The nose of the Embolado and the rear panel, are
however slightly more difficult to define. The rear panel
is cluttered, although the shapes and layout do stand
out as belonging to a Lamborghini. While the nose of the
Embolado looks dated when compared to the Murcielago LP640
and Gallardo front ends. But with minor changes these
problems could easily be rectified.
