There’s a lot going on here. Italdesign is launching its new limited-production brand, Italdesign Automobili Speciali, with the crazy mid-engined supercar you see here. It looks more like a place to keep every aerodynamic flourish the company has ever created than a car you will actually be able to buy, but they’re going to sell five of them.
It also reminds us of a Nissan GT-R in some ways, such as the shape of the roof, but you can be assured this is a Lamborghini underneath. Italdesign has provided precious few details so far, only allowing that the car is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 that will send it to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and on to a top speed in excess of 205 mph. Given the fact that Italdesign is controlled by Lamborghini and the two companies often work closely with each other, we’re pretty confident this is the world’s most exclusive Lamborghini Huracán. Those few buyers will be able to outfit their car to their taste with help from the Italdesign staff.
And just look at all of the aero bits! We count three pairs of dive plane blades, two sets of louvered fender vents, some aggressive splitters, and what might be the world’s most complex rear diffuser. The silver car is done up with tricolori accents running down the middle and lots of red trim on the exposed carbon fiber. The whole body is made of the lightweight material, in fact, meaning it should be lighter than a run-of-the-mill Huracán. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the new top-dog Huracán Performante, which will be shown for the first time at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, just like Italdesign car.
We’ll be looking for more details on Italdesign Automobili Speciali’s first car in the lead up to the show.
