Lamborghini Embolado Concept: a bull only Picasso could love
Design students hatch some crazy concepts because they're not hindered by the mind numbing effects of product planners, bean counters, focus groups and the like. We think the Lamborghini Embolado Concept by Italian design student Luca Serafini makes a good case for why those hindrances are in place. Of course, beauty's in the eye of the beholder, so perhaps you disagree, but to us the Embolado Concept looks a Picasso painting that's been shrink wrapped around a Gallardo. Named after a Spanish festival called the Tore Embolado, which means 'bull in balls' (what is it with Lambos and weird translations?), the concept was reportedly inspired by "aggressivity", as if that's something Lamborghini's sold today lack. What do you think? Are we on the money or would this thing be the new hotness if it were actually real? Serafini apparently thinks there's a business case for it, as he also designed a Superleggera version for consideration.
