Lamborghini Minotauro Concept Design by Andrei Avarvarii

Minotauro (Italian for “minotaur”) was in the Greek mythology a creature with the head of a bull on the body of a man. It was chosen as a name for the car after a brainstorming that identified one distinctive feature of the Lamborghini cars. That they are beasts you fight and let you live to tell the tale.
Other keywords taken into consideration when developing this project were: Italian, Extreme, Unexpected, Purity, Ornaments and embellishments free, Physically addictive experience, Pure automotive extravagance, Technological marvel.
The electric Lamborghini is equipped with 4 asynchronous motors that divide power 70% to the rear and 30% to the front axle. Electricity is supplied by a Li-Tec flatcell battery pack located in the rear doubled by a KERS system in the front.
The absence of a big V12 engine in the rear creates enough room for a third passenger in a central position. In the exterior, this unusual layout is communicated by the use of the narrow rear window that is shaped in order to improve interior lighting and head room for the rear occupant.
On the driver side the car has a normal door, while on the passenger side there is a longer “Lambo door” that also offers access for the rear passenger.
The triangle shaped air extakes in the rear serve for battery cooling and visually replace the traditional exhausts, which play such an important role in a traditional supercar. They also act like the tubes of a subwoofer, channelling the sound of the electric motors, placed behind them.
In 2020, with the acquisition of the new Minotauro, the Lamborghini owner will also get involved in a brand new experience called REAL LIFE ONLINE GAMING. In this scenario the Lamborghini driver can race his car on a real racetrack (like the Nurburgring). The GPS data of his racing lap is uploaded into the Playstation game network as a ghost. PS players from all over the world can race in virtual reality against the Lamborghini owner and try to beat his best lap. This is the car enthusiasts’ social networking for the next decade.
