Insecta Lamborghini Sport Car Concept by Iulian Bumbu
The Lamborghini Insecta concept was designed by Iulian Bumbu, who in 2008 completed the Transportation Design Master Course with Alfa Romeo at the Scuola Politecnica di Design (SPD) in Milan. Called the Insecta, the radical concept's design elements were borrowed from bugs instead of bovines.
Combining organic shapes with Lamborghini's trademark geometric angles, the Insecta concept integrates themes culled from the body armour observed on certain species of insects. With its dimensions and powertrain borrowed from the Gallardo, the Insecta would pack a sting as sharp as its buzz, and it could make a compelling successor to the current LP560-4.

The length of the Lamborghini Insecta concept car is 4300mm (169 inches), similar to that of the Lamborghini Gallardo, however the Insecta is lower and wider than the Gallardo, plus it features a slightly longer wheelbase.
The Lamborghini Insecta concept supercar is powered by a 5 litre V10 engine and it uses the same drivetrain as the Gallardo. This supercar comes with a glass engine cover that blends into the glass roof of the vehicle and, as far as the bodywork is concerned, it’s all carbon fibre to reduce weight.

Inside the Lamborghini Insecta concept you’ll find a deep bucket seats, a high center console and an U-shaped sports steering wheel.
You gotta love how designers get inspiration from the living breathing world.
What do you think? We like it, especially that all glass cockpit.
