This story contains illustrations of a fictional supercar by professional automotive designer Cesar Olivera who is neither related to nor endorsed by Lamborghini.
The brutalist school of architecture is seeing a revival in popularity, and one professional designer, Cesar Olivera, who spends their days working with a major auto manufacturer (and kindly shared their speculative renderings with us) has decided to use that as inspiration for the Lamborghini Ravietta, their take on a future supercar for the Italian automaker.
Described by Olivera as a “brutalist rolling sculpture,” the supercar takes inspiration from classic Lamborghini models like the Murcielago, the Diablo, and, of course, the Countach, while bringing them up to date for modern eyes.
And indeed, those inspirations can be found quite easily in the sharp, Countach-inspired creases, the cab-forward Diablo proportions, and the Murcielago-like active air intakes. The rotary phone dial wheels also scream classic Lamborghini, but it’s not all old-school.
“The Ravietta is my idea of what a future Lamborghini could look like, a futuristic design that reinterprets Lamborghini DNA in a fresh way combined with modern design cues from recent models like the Sian,” the designer told Carscoops.
As a result, it also incorporates more modern elements of Lamborghini design. That includes cues like the Y-shaped front light signature and the slabs over the engine compartment that here incorporate the taillights.
Elements like the glass roof, the forward pointing cameras, and the vertically-stacked exhaust pipes are all new, meanwhile. Overall, the design is an attempt to reconcile classic Lamborghini V12 design with a modern minimalist aesthetic.
“The Ravietta features a simple bone line, or crease, on the body side that goes from the front corner to the rear corner of the car, thus creating structure on the body,” Olivera told us. “The simple shape of the vehicle is split in half (top to bottom) in a dynamic manner to create a sense of motion, while the red finish on the lower part of the body highlights the stance and the aggressive nature of the design.”
According to the designer, the goal of this study is to show how impactful a simple design can be, and we think they’ve succeeded. How about you?
