Lamborghini concept: fighty

Designer of big shouty fighter jets draws new Lamborghini Murcielago successor. You like?

Lamborghini Navarra

Lockheed Martin - for the uninitiated - is a company that makes big shouty fighter jets and lots of missiles and assorted weapons.

So when one of its designers penned a new Lamborghini concept, we got quite excited. We expected a Lambo with the propensity to transform into a flying merchant of SpeedyDeath using lasers and stuff.

But what we got instead was this - the Lamborghini ‘Navarra' by designer Adam Denning.

It takes Lambo's current styling language - a language inspired, don't forget, by the Lockheed Martin-designed F-22 Raptor jet fighter, which influenced the Reventon - and adds curves. It's also a styling language we think swears. Profusely.

Denning's Navarra concept takes cues from classical Renaissance sculpture and blends them with organic shapes. Not from surface-to-air missiles or ground attack aircraft.

Whaddya reckon? The Murcielago is now on its last legs with the LP670-SV, so a successor is already in the wings. Should it look like this?
