Following his involvement in the development of famous Lamborghini models namely the Miura and the Countach, Marcello Gandini, who had now been operating his own design consultancy firm, was entrusted with the design of the Diablo’s successor. The car called the Acosta was heavily based on the Diablo following the new management’s policy and was Gandini’s interpretation for a modern day Lamborghini. The Acosta had a fairly angled design language when compared to the Canto (shown below). The large rear cooling intakes were more smoothened and were inline with the design language but were followed by equally large outlets at the rear of the car. The front of the car had two thin headlamps joined by a scaffolding which created a bulge on the hood, the bulge were also present on the engine cover to create more room for the engine harking back to the Countach, reducing rear visibility. The wing mirrors were two large units incorporating large openings for better airflow. There was also a small spoiler present on the small window at the rear of the car.
This design was considered too aggressive for a modern Lamborghini and that it was loosely based around the Diablo’s design. It was ultimately rejected. The only car completed based on Gandini’s design was left without any running gear and is now stored in the Lamborghini Museum. lamborghini gallardo wallpapers, lambo huracan, lambo backgrounds, Lamborghini Diablo wallpapers, lambo wallpaper
