The year 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the famous Italian sports car brand, Lamborghini. In 1963, Ferruccio Lamborghini started the company with the intent of creating supercars to compete with models from Ferrari. Now, as a celebration of this event, and as an homage to Ferruccio Lamborghini, Mark Hostler, a transportation design student at Staffordshire university, has created the Lamborghini Ferruccio Concept.

According to the designer, the concept is "a car that takes inspiration from the company’s lineage, and also showcases the current design language and innovations of the company in their trademark flamboyant style." The concept’s front end, bonnet, and super-wide rear end were inspired by the Countach. The front and rear wings were inspired by the Miura, while the sharp nose and mirrors, and aggressive air intakes across the body and roof take their inspiration from the current Lamborghini design language.

The concept was designed to use a small 5.0 liter V12 engine with two turbochargers and feature direct injection technology.

Though it has aggressive looks, could it be more dangerous to deal with the spike-mounted bumper?

The paint job added fierceness to its already aggressive built. It truly suits its concept name.

Did Mark design this to go hit-and-run his enemy? Kidding aside, it really is dangerous. Imagine driving this at a speedy run, isn’t it scary?

I’m betting that enthusiasts will hurry and save for this. But for me, I still like Aventador J better.

I guess something instantly topped off the Aventador J my list. Its jagged front seems dangerous though.

Its fascia is truly unique. It’s like something you’d only see in a movie as it doesn’t really run, but only controlled.

The figure is much better in black because it looks very aggressive and powerful. Have they put the feature on display already?

This is very different from every other aggressive supercars. It really displays its unique fascia flamboyantly. Aren’t the pointed ends hazardous though?

The production of this will be limited, so it will have a higher market price. The striking style of this will certainly attract people.

I’m not sure if i just got finish looking at a car or some type if miniature stealth plane. This car is pretty in its own kinda way but its highly unlikely it will ever go into production. However, if this car ever goes into production and hits the road it will definetly be a eye-cathcer.

When I look at this car, it is really ferocious; the name Ferruccio matches its concept. To me, it is more attractive than the Aventador J.

Am I looking at a car? Seriously, this is really the most aggressive concept car I’ve ever seen.
