This is Probably What the Lamborghini Diablo Would Look Like if it Was Designed Today

This is Probably What the Lamborghini Diablo Would Look Like if it Was Designed Today

But then again, would it be a good idea to modernize the Diablo?

Design has always been a big deal at Lamborghini and the brand’s DNA is best reflected in the audacious styling cues flaunted by its supercars. We’re not including the Urus here, although for a performance SUV, it certainly looks spicier than anything that’s out there at the moment.

That said, do we really need a Lamborghini Diablo adorned with modern design elements?

This RX Vision - 918 Mashup Is Proof Mazda and Porsche Should Build a Hypercar Together

Looks aside, care to think what might power this thing?

It’s easy to get yourself lost in the sea of digital renders popping up these days on the interwebs. With artists becoming more and more visible, we’re constantly bombarded with wannabe futuristic vehicles, modern twists brought to classic cars, or simply all-new concoctions that are never going to see daylight in real life.

Now try to guess where this Mazda RX Vision GT3 - Porsche 918 Spyderhodgepodge fits in.

This Mercedes SLR-AMG Concept Rendering Is What the Next-Gen AMG GT Should Be

This Mercedes SLR-AMG Concept Rendering Is What the Next-Gen AMG GT Should Be

While visually attractive, this SLR design has virtually zero chances of becoming a real car

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren was, if you wish, an example of fusion (car) food done right. A stint between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren, the SLR had one paramount task - two, in fact.

On one hand, it had to pay proper respect to the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, while on the other, it had to generate F1 race car-level thrills on public road even for the noob driver. For that, it packed a 617-horsepower supercharged V-8 and an all-carbon fiber chassis, among other delicacies.

Check Out These Renderings of The Tesla Cybertruck as Various Public Service Vehicles

Surprisingly, this unorthodox truck fits all the roles quite well

The Cybertruck has been reimagined as a heavy-armored truck, combat truck, a vehicle fit to be driven on Mars and whatnot. But how would it serve as a pizza delivery vehicle or a taxi? It seems a little contrasting with its demeanor, but U.K.-based LeaseFetcher has imagined it in various avatars.

Big-Wing Porsche 935 Looks Ready to Storm Pikes Peak

Big-Wing Porsche 935 Looks Ready to Storm Pikes Peak

It wouldn’t be the first Porsche to join the Race to the Clouds

With a little help from the creative genius of Jon Sibal, Porsche’s modern interpretation of the 935 ‘Moby Dick’ turns into a Pikes Peak monster ready to take the 156-turn course by storm.

This Rendering of a Mazda MX-5 Wagon Looks Painfully Like the BMW Z3 M Coupe

They say don’t judge a book by its cover but we can judge it by how it sells, right?

When it comes to quirky BMWs, the Z3 M Coupe certainly takes the cake. That’s why this render of a Mazda Miata MX-5 in shooting brake-ish attire caught our eye instantly.

No, this is not the work of Mazda and in all fairness, we wouldn’t want it to be in the first place. Here’s why.

This Three-Axle Toyota Tacoma TRD Is Too Crazy To Describe

This Three-Axle Toyota Tacoma TRD Is Too Crazy To Describe

We’d normally dismiss such an oddity but this is just too bonkers not to like

If you happen to follow the car world’s digital illustrators, you know it’s a wild, wild world out there on our screens. Guys like Khyzyl Saleem and Ash Thorp can turn any jalopy into a hot-as-chilli restomod, and the same can be said about Jon Sibal.

Specifically, Jon came up with a re-tweak of one of his original works - a widebody Toyota Tacoma design - where he basically added a third axle to the whole thing, which now sits on not four, but six ‘meaty wheels’ as the artist calls them.

This Rendering Shows What the Facelifted 2021 Bentley Bentayga Should Look Like

This Rendering Shows What the Facelifted 2021 Bentley Bentayga Should Look Like

Taking the grille from the Bacalar and pasting it on the Bentayga actually works

Believe it or not, the Bentayga is Bentley’s best-selling model so it’s only natural for the British carmaker to allocate special attention to its luxury SUV, which is poised to see fruition once the facelifted Bentayga hits the market.

A couple of leaked images of the revised Bentayga pretty much ruined the element of surprise for Bentley as far as a reveal is concerned, but one visual artist believes the SUV would look better if it borrowed some styling cues from the Mulliner Bacalar drop-top.

The Rendering of the BMW M440i Most Wanted Has Need For Speed Written All Over It

The Rendering of the BMW M440i Most Wanted Has Need For Speed Written All Over It

The BMW 4 Series would look cool in Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Still not a fan of the latest 4 Series? Is that big kidney grille annoying? Well, maybe this rendering from X-Tomi Design will change your mind. Although it retains the 4 Series’ main features, including the controversial grille, it adds a new spin with add-ons and a livery inspired by the already legendary Need for Speed: Most Wanted video game.

The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette With C1 Elements Looks Oddly Satisfying

Surprisingly, the sight of this contraption doesn’t make us cringe

Remember how carmakers brag that their latest models pay tribute to their predecessors with reinterpreted vintage design cues? Well, sometimes you need a magnifying glass to see those but here’s a visual artist that really found a neat (and distinguishable) way to bake in C1 Corvette styling elements into the 2020 C8 Corvette.

If the Bugatti EB110 Was Front-Engined, It Would Look Like a Corvette

If the Bugatti EB110 Was Front-Engined, It Would Look Like a Corvette

We’re still waiting for GM to make a quad-turbo Corvette

The Bugatti EB110 was one of the wildest supercars to come out of the ’90s. The use of not one, not, two, but four turbochargers never made any sense but, under the leadership of Romano Artioli, it got made anyway to mark the 110th birthday of Ettore Bugatti.

It was luxurious on the inside and, just like in the case of its peers from McLaren or Ferrari, that ludicrous engine sat behind the driver. But what if that wasn’t the case? What if Don Panoz had revived Bugatti instead? Yasid Design writes alternative history.

This Lifted, Off-Road GMC Vandura Would Satisfy Every Dream You Had in the 1980s

This Lifted, Off-Road GMC Vandura Would Satisfy Every Dream You Had in the 1980s

Is this GMC Vandura cooler than the iconic A-Team van?

Lifted trucks and SUVs are insanely awesome. You can drive them just about anywhere and you can even race them in snow or sand. But you know what’s better than a lifted truck or SUV? A lifted van! If it’s a GMC from the 1980s, like the one recently showcased by Yasid Design, it’s even better.

The Modern BMW 6 Series Rendering Shows Us What the BMW 8 Series Should Have Been

The Modern BMW 6 Series Rendering Shows Us What the BMW 8 Series Should Have Been

This BMW 6 Series is based on the iconic E24 "Sharknose" model

BMW revived the 8 Series nameplate in 2018 as a flagship two-door model. At the same time, the German firm discontinued the 6 Series after 15 years of continuous production. The 8 Series was well-received overall, but some BMW fans weren’t quite happy with the exterior design, considered rather dull for a flagship coupe. If you’re among those unhappy with the 8 Series, you should check out the modern 6 Series design by Grigory Butin.

This Mitsubishi 4000GT Rendering Has Us Itching for a Nissan GT-R Fighter

Instead of butchering sports car nameplates, Mitsubishi should build this

The jury’s still out on the future of the Nissan GT-R but that’s not of utter importance right now. We’re here to talk about a nameplate and a digital successor to that nameplate that haven’t been yet twisted to denote a crossover or an SUV. That’s right, we’re talking about the Mitsubishi 3000GT and an artist’s vision of a would-be 4000GT.

Here's What A Kia Mohave-Based Pickup Truck Would Look Like

Here’s What A Kia Mohave-Based Pickup Truck Would Look Like

A truck with these aesthetics will be trouble for rivals

Back in 2019, Kia announced that it will enter the pickup market with a mid-size truck. The truck is still a few years away, but that doesn’t mean rendering artists won’t let their creative juices flow to imagine what it could look like.

This rendering by SRK designs is based on the Kia Mohave SUV, and we must admit, it looks pretty tough for a compact truck. But we’re not complaining.

This Retro Mercedes-Benz SL500 Speedster Sends All the Right 90s Vibes

This Retro Mercedes-Benz SL500 Speedster Sends All the Right 90s Vibes

The Mercedes-Benz SL500 gets a Photoshop makeover with a speedster twist

Once one of the most recognizable Mercedes-Benz cars to roam the roads, the SL might not live for longer in the form we all know and love. Blame that on people having the hots for SUVs and crossovers but also on stricter emissions standards.

The Germans have already axed the range-topping V-12 Mercedes-AMG SL 65 as well as the SL 63, which was made redundant by the AMG GT convertible. So in these uncertain times for the roadster, it’s good to see one of its previous iterations being brought to life as a slammed speedster, albeit in the digital world.

This Dacia Sentry Rendering Envisions An Unlikely Porsche Taycan Fighter

There’s not the slightest point in comparing Dacia to Porsche, but the Sentry is an enticing design study

While Dacia is indeed planning to go electric, it will do so with a crossover-y model heavily inspired by the Spring concept car. So it goes without saying that a fully-blown, out-and-out performance EV wearing the Dacia badge is out of the question. But one can dream, right?

This Widebody C8 Corvette is the Mid-Engined Chevy We Deserved

This Widebody C8 Corvette is the Mid-Engined Chevy We Deserved

But it’s just a rendering for now

The first mid-engined Corvette in history, the C8 is one cool sports car that’s closer than ever to supercar territory. Sadly, production of the C8 was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Chevy won’t build additional 2020 model year cars. It also seems that the 2021 model year will be a short production year too, so getting a C8 will be rather tricky in the next six to 12 months. Production of the Z06, ZR1, and Zora are also postponed, but if you’re a fan of beefed-up Corvettes, Car MStyle Design just posted a widebody concept of the C8 to keep you excited.

If This Porsche Cyber 677 Concept Is the Future Porsche 911, We Need a Time Machine

If This Porsche Cyber 677 Concept Is the Future Porsche 911, We Need a Time Machine

Bored of the Porsche 911? Not anymore!

Porsche 911 fans are always given a hard time. Be it because they love a "glorified Beetle" or because "that thing’s been looking the same since the days my grandma was in kindergarten", 911 fans rarely catch a break and it’s all simply because they love a car as anachronic as Stuttgart’s most famous automotive export (sorry Mercedes). But Paul Breshke took it upon himself to change all that and, in doing so, he made the 911 feel novel again. Behold the Porsche Cyber 677 Concept.
