Taking a re-look at Lamborghini’s Reventon, which was initially inspired by the F-22 Raptor, it made sense for the Raging Bull seek the out the original designers – Lockheed Martin.
After Lockheed merged with Martin Marietta to become Lockheed Martin in 1995, Lockheed by itself has helped give birth to many well acclaimed modern-day aircrafts such as the U2, SR-71 Blackbird, F-117 Night Hawk, F-22 Raptor, C-130 Heculese and C-5 Galaxy. But many remember the company for building the P-38 Lightning, known as the “fork-tailed devil” by the Luftwaffe and “two planes, one pilot” by the Japanese.
The Navarro concept, as depicted above by American designer Adam Denning, who has a Masters in automotive design from Milan’s Scuola Politecnica di Design – took into account Lamborghini’s succession of V12 supercars from the Miura to the Murcielago, taking the company’s current sharp-edged language one step further by blending it with organic shapes inspired by classical Renaissance sculpture.
This gives the Navarro concept a slightly shorter body than the Murcielago’s but is able to have a slightly longer wheel-base instead.
And so with the Jota about to make an appearance, it’s most likely that Lamborghini has signed off on its designs by now.
