The brief asked students to explore new interpretations of Lamborghini’s DNA to project the language of the brand beyond the current range to produce concepts for the near future.

The concepts produced during the initial stage identified the motorcycle segment and racing cars for future development.

The Lamborghini Le Mans concept is a single seater witha a design characterized by trapezoidal elements, which clearly express the brand’s identity.

The design language is based on the idea of the Diamond Cut. The proportions are based on the Le Mans race cars like the Audi R10. It has a 2800 mm wheelbase, 4555 mm length, 1146 mm height and 2043 mm width. The engine is the V12 with 670 hp.

As Daniel Chinchilla Ochoa explains "I want to treat the surfaces like a precious object. I studied the different diamonds and how they have evolved and then I tried to apply the same process to the surface treatment of the car. I want to show contrast between the lights and the shadows."

"The brand character is expressed by the front intakes that show a trapezoidal shape; the V shape lines of the bonnet and the prominent wheel arches, inspired by the 60’s models like the Miura."

"The engine cover was inspired by the F1 cars. It is an important volume that emphasizes the most important element of the car: the engine."The rear part of the vehicle shows a diffusor and a wing that ecoes the Countach.

The final result is a machine that has the look of a jetfighter for the road that features a style similar to the Reventon.
