The Cadillac Estill design vision from last week is not the only incredible future exotic designed by Ondrej Jirec recently. While in his final years as a student at the Art College of Design in Pasadena, Jirec has also been dreaming of future Lamborghini’s.
But his dreams turn out far better than any study-hall doodle we could ever achieve… that is for sure.
This Gallardo-sized Lamborghini looks fairly traditional from the nose, but is actually a mean and deconstructed beast with ultra-short overhands, complex leading edges, and a full glass canopy.
The first thing that hits your eye is the Perdigon’s exposed ram-air intake, which provides maximum cooling directly to all mechanical components right. Top-mounted like on the latest stealth drones, the air intake is polarizing but certainly gives Jirec’s vision a memorable mental timestamp.
While the central air intake is prominent, we couldn’t help wondering what the car would look like without it. The below rendering gives an idea.
The best features of this mid-engine supercar come around back in the rear fenders, which show an amazing step-level of design toward the engine cover and the back of the glass canopy. Such a design statement makes the Perdigon far more futuristic-feeling than the Gallardo or its Huracan successor, and gives it an exotic feel not unlike the W Motors Lykan Hypersport.
Finally, a tall rear fin provides a great stabilizing aileron for high-speed runs – keeping the Perdigon headed straight-ahead even when speeds top 200-mph.
In his own words…
“The Perdigón pushes the Lamborghini design language to a higher level. The outcome is a brutal and powerful driving machine designed to shock and raise awareness of the brand. The striking front air intake leads cool air to the transmission and the engine through a center tunnel.”
