The Lamborghini Concept S was first shown as a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 2005. The high concept super car was created at the Centro Stile Lamborghini in Sant’Agata Bolognese by Luc Donckerwolke, who drew inspiration from the classic single-seater racing cars of the past. The astonishing amount of public interest at the Geneva Motor Show prompted the decision to build a drivable prototype in order to further gauge potential customer demand, which was shown for the first time in Summer 2005 at the Monterey Concorso Italiano, and at Pebble Beach.
The Concept S cockpit has been divided into two distinct compartments, giving the car an aggressive and futuristic look. It also creates a space between driver and passenger that acts as an additional air inlet for the engine, which is positioned behind the seats. And like the Gallardo, which serves as the basis for this stunning super sports car, the Concept S is equipped with a powerful V10 engine.
The aerodynamics of the Concept S have been optimized thanks to front and rear spoilers and a large rear diffuser. An electronically controlled, retractable central rear view mirror allows the driver to see what is happening behind the car.
Though some time has passed since this concept was introduced, the interest amongst auto enthusiasts has remained consistently high. Phoenix Valley area auto enthusiasts should keep an eye out for revamped concept models to be making an appearance at the Arizona Auto Show, which takes place over Thanksgiving weekend at the Phoenix Arizona Convention Center. That is if Lamborghini wishes to produce another conceptual version at all, because given the continued hype, they may do better to go straight to production. Phoenix Valley residents interested in viewing this vehicle, should it hit Phoenix Valley showroom floors sometime soon, can do so at Lamborghini North Scottsdale.
