Di­rec­tor of Cen­tro Stile, Lam­borgh­ini

L AMBORGHINI HAS AL­WAYS been in the su­per­car busi­ness. In its own seg­ment even the Urus is a su­per­car. Cur­rently, the Aven­ta­dor is our flag­ship su­per­car. Hav­ing said that, I strongly be­lieve there is room for some­thing a lot wilder—for a hy­per­car. To live up to this des­ig­na­tion, re­body­ing an ex­ist­ing ve­hi­cle won’t do. In­stead, this car would have to be hy­per in ev­ery way. Its pro­por­tions must be out of this world, like noth­ing you have ever seen be­fore. Of course, the de­sign rev­o­lu­tion would ex­tend to the func­tion­al­i­ties. Light weight is ab­so­lutely es­sen­tial, and this means most likely a car­bon-fiber fuse­lage. Su­per-ef­fi­cient aero­dy­nam­ics must be paired with ex­treme down­force. As far as the driv­e­train is con­cerned, any­thing goes: hy­brid, elec­tric, you name it. All that re­ally mat­ters is that our hy­per­car pro­vides the most amaz­ing vis­ual state­ment and the most me­morable driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence money can buy.
