50% modification of my Concept II. Not much else to it. My favourite car in my collection at the moment, and quite possibly my most detailed too.
About this creation
UPDATE: 13th January 2012
Remodelled most of the bodywork:
- Bulbous headlights (Goodbye Gallardo!), which look great in the flesh or, er, ABS I should say.
- Porsche 917 and generic Lamborghini design inspired front intake
- Removed fender intakes, replaced with two huge (And I mean huge! The photos don't give them justice) intakes behind the cabin
- Reworked fender flares (I wanted to keep the light stickers, which meant I only had 2 fender pieces, instead of the 4 which I needed).
- Slight change of black stripe/shape on the bonnet and sides
- And, um, door handles...
Hope you all like the improvements. I certainly do! :D
END OF UPDATE
I kept the Gallardo lights (and Gallardo inspiration for the front end). Not because I couldn't think of another way to make it, I just like the way it looks. Ummm, massive diffuser, tow hooks, vents, pumped fenders, and a more aggressive tire/wheel/camber setup. No fire extinguisher needed though, as this car isn't a Ferrari. ;)
Looaaddsss of overview shots.
Bonnet/trunk(?) is removed to reveal a fuel cell and overly complicated torsion suspension. I was going to make some pretty front suspension, but the bonnet vents denied me that.
Trunk/bonnet(?) is removed to reveal not a V12 or a V10, not even a V8. Rather, my concept now features one of my favourite engines; a 3-rotor 20b. Naturally aspirated and good for roughly 9,000rpm and 400hp. Individual throttle bodies (there should only be 3, not 6, but I couldn't find a better way of doing it other than using binoculars), fuel line and exhaust system replicated as best as I could. Le greebles provide an additional 10hp each. I think that's right.
Other engine angles.
A couple of pointless photos. Er, sorry about that.
I hope you'll agree with me when I say this is an improvement on the original. The first one looked too similar to the Gallardo set (which became apparent when I read your comments), but I think I've made it more different now.
Future plans are for a coupe or hatch version. Please feel free to comment and/or rate :)
Wow, I love how you still managed to incorporate some awesome classic porscheness into this. I love the back lights, the whole thing reminds me of a ford shelby cobra concept... keep building these awesome brutes!!
Mate this is crazy!!!! I really like the shape and great choice of engine, but when you build another version of this concept, put in an RB26dett from a Nissan R34 GTR, that would be awesome, but the 20b is still a great engine! Anyway awesome looking car and sorry for the late comment, I havn't been on the computer for a while
I like it

well detailed car, like the engine detail, excellent.
That's cool, especially the very detailed interior and the engine. I'd say it still looks like a Lambo, but like a new model :-)) The shaping is really cool. The tail lights and the air outlets on the front are my favourite design elements. Great job! :-)) By the way, it's a real low rider, what a pity that it would be disqualified to do a power lap on Top Gear ;-))
Wow! Definitely better than your first version, such a clean moc. Love the engine, wheel arches and the zonda-ish exhausts. The interior is also quite good, nice colors. :] The only thing that I don't like, are the front lights. Maybe you could use some transparent bricks to replace the stickers? :]
