I need to see that thing in person, because in pictures, that thing is ugly. I mean real ugly.

I will say, if it only weighs 2200 pounds, that is damn impressive.

That thing is hideous... but then again I don't think it's meant to be good looking, it's a technology concept... and if they can get a production Gallardo weighing just 2200lbs then it's gonna blow away all the competition.

The press photo leak looks better.

And... looks like they stole Fords Squircle steering wheel concept LOL.

At least it looks wild, like a Lamborghini should.

I don't know so much.

The Gallardo is not a 'wild" design, this car just look soverdone.

No "lambo doors" or really innovative angles and wangles, just "extreme" - almost as if it is playing to the wealthy and tasteless eastern europeans

Wild doesn't always mean good. Look at the Corvette Mantide... wild, but not good. Bad in a "Bricklin SV1 looks better in a car compactor" kind of way.

It's about time that car manufactures start lowering the weight of cars.

You mean you don't approve of the 599 SA Aperta weighing in at nearly a Bugatti? At least it gets the GTO engine tune.

Agreed. At first look in photos I dont' like it.
Especially the jumbo sized cheese grater that covers the engine. If it were a chinese design we'd be much less tolerant, right?
