You all know that the Reventon was Lamborghini’s star at the Frankfurt Auto Show. But not many of you know that the Reventon could have been overshadowed by a faster super with a more aggressive design, but never destined to go into production.

The supercar we are talking about was named after the founder of Automobili Lamborghini, Ferruccio Lamborghini. It is based on the drivetrain of the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 which is powered by a 6.5 litre V12 producing 640 horsepower and 660Nm of torque.

The Lamborghini Ferruccio uses early Lamborghini models for design inspiration but with a modern twist. The "eyelash" headlight clusters are a contemporary interpretation of the units found on the Lamborghini Miura, while the fixed rear elevated haunches are similar to those on the Countach, these also help to channel air into the engine bay. The "recessed’ fan intakes on the bonnet are also reminiscent of the Lamborghini Jota of 1971, unique design cues are the swooshing, sweeping concave and convex lines running across the sides of the Lamborghini Ferruccio’s body.

Ferruccio Concept was supposed to be built in only 10 unit: 5 coupe and 5 spiders, but when the concept was ready the company only had 3 orders for the supercar, none of which paid! The price was supposed to be around 1.5 million euro, so the company is now working on a new version, with lowered production cost.

Sad thing that they never decide to put this on production, the design and concept of this Ferrucio will go to waste.

Lamborghini had lots of impressive sports car concept like this one, but too bad that they don’t want to put this one on market production. smiley

This Ferrucio concept is really awesome, that’s why I don’t understand why Lamborghini don’t want to put this one on market production.

If you actually took a moment to comprehend the article, you might realize that this design has nothing to do with the actual Lamborghini company. Seriously, it’s just someone’s idea of a cool concept render.

This kind of thing makes me ashamed to be an industrial designer. Lamborghini have the styling cues they have because they are aggressive super cars meant to haul at high speeds. A tractor’s life is much different. I can point out literally hundreds of reasons why this would be a horrible tractor, just looking at it. Taking the styling of one thing, applying it to
something else, and completely ignoring the needs of the new product is BAD DESIGN.

Lamborghini better not shame itself by naming this hulk of metal after Ferruccio! This thing is ugly! The first non-retro design Miura concept was way better looking. Give that thing (the non-retro miura) a Reventon makover, give it a 800+ Hp engine, V12, perferrably, and you got something that will shadow the presance of even a Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir. (Or the Reventon for that matter)
