This guy named Slavche Tanevski made the concept for the Lamborghini Madura. He is a student at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. This project was done as a part of the Lamborghini Raw Materials Project led by the Professor Doctor Othmar Wickenheiser, and all the students at the school could take part of the project.
The appreciation of Feruccio Lamborghini to the culture in Spain and bull fighting led to naming all of the Lamborghini cars after some famous places or bulls or families linked to bulls. This car is named respecting that tradition, after an island in Indonesia that is very famous for bull races.
The Madura concept is a proposal for the Lamborghini’s first hybrid car expected for 2016. He says that to make a car more nature-friendly and more efficient, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be good looking, exciting and fast. But, he thinks that this new propulsion system should be defined on the looks of the vehicle.
The body of the Madura is rather cab-backwards style that is something new for today’s Lamborghini range, but as side view silhouette is not unfamiliar to Lamborghini, particularly the Lamborghini Urraco and Silhouette had very similar body-cab structures.
Proportionally, the Lambo has rather equally long overhangs and a short wheelbase. The short wheelbase of the car gives it better driving performance and better agility. On the other hand, the long overhangs are visually shortened by playing with the thin layering surfaces that are part of the separate body elements.
The front of the car is aerodynamic and very sleek. It consists of bonnet with electric engine below, and spoiler with blades in the middle for better cW result and more depth of the design. The headlights are horizontally oriented and very thin to emphasize the cars’ width.
The tail of the car is analog to the front. Again, there is a play with more bodies and blades in between. They intersect by flowing or overlapping parallel. As special features are the spoilers that grow out of the side panels and when braking they are connected with laser beams, as a symbol for the electric drive.
