The Encierro is an uncompromised EV hypercar with an innovative design aiming at reinterpreting the brand’s DNA, with reminiscences from the aeronautic and the motorsport worlds and with a number of refined technical details, such as the lighting units, the exhaust pipes and the carbon fiber trims.
The project was among last year’s final thesis at the SPD Master in Transportation Design.
If you are interested in attending the next edition of the Master starting on October 2017, Car Body Design and SPD are offering two scholarships worth 25K Euros – you can just send your portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org or read more details here.
The surface treatment features sharp edges, tight lines and a decomposition of the surfaces, which takes inspiration from jet fighter and is in line with the styling language of many recent models and concepts from the brand.
The large rear wind, with a zig-zagged edge, detaches from the main body, visually extending the vehicle’s length.
Another distinctive element is the asymmetrical layout of the architecture, which expresses the dynamic, sporty character.
The electric motor is positioned at the center of the vehicle, which along with the two large fans located in the rear bottom area increases ground effect and aerodynamic efficiency.
The project was developed at the Milan-based SPD under the supervision of a group of designers from the Lamborghini Design Center at Sant’Agata Bolognese. The team, led by design chief Mitja Borkert, included Michele Tinazzo, Nelson Simoes and Facundo Elias.
