Popular Now: Volkswagen Confirms Their Smallest Car Ever

Lambo's Alar: Hot or Not?

lambo alar02 Lambo's Alar: Hot or Not?

Lamborghini fans could face some indecision over whether or not the company’s latest offering honors their tradition of good-looking cars. The Italian sports car maker is famous for producing vehicles that define beauty and pace. While the latter quality is sure to be found in the company’s latest offering, the Alar, the initial reaction to press pictures of the car has been heavily divided between guarded praise and outright criticism.

lambo alar Lambo's Alar: Hot or Not?

Mulled for sale from March 2008, the Alar features a reworked version of the V12 mill used in the mighty Diablo. The unit has been bored to 7700cc, and produces 770hp at 7500rpm. Thanks to an ultra-light, super-stiff carbon fiber chassis, weight tops out at a low 1200kg. The 0-100km/h sprint is dispatched in a neck-snapping 3.6 seconds, and the fighting bull will nudge a top speed of 410km/h. It is clear, then, that performance will not be an issue of contention. The design, however, is the subject of much controversy. Penned by Joan Ferci (who also created a couple of Diablo spin-offs that include the Coatl and the Eros GT-1), it has been criticized for its radical styling cues.

While we have not seen detailed pictures of the car, one might concede that it is indeed an acquired taste. Decide whether or not this new Italian brute takes your fancy!

I will pretend that I am sleeping and this is a horrible nightmare. When I wake up there will be the nice pretty Gallardo and Murcielago posters staring at me….

Please dont tell me this is where Lambo’s design philosphy is going! This looks is the bastard child of some Japanese concept car and Photoshop!!

It looks like one of the ‘futuristic’ cars off Thunderbirds or something…

It has ‘wow’ factor, you can’t knock it for that… The problem will be when the ‘wow’ wears off…

Car design does not move ahead by being timid and just using what has worked in the past. it takes something radical like this to to push the boundries of tomorrow

what? WHAT??? That thing is a Ferrari Enzo with yellow paint and a Lamborghini logo on the steering wheel! Look, the Enzo has the pointed nose and the two triangular holes in the bonnet, the Lamborghini I’m looking at right now has a pointed nose and two rectangular holes in the bonnet. I like the sleak looks of the Enzo better than the bulkyness of this Lamborghini Whatever-It-Is. I also think that the boote on it is hideous! It looks like wrinkles in the tail end of the car! It’s like my grandfather!

i think the car is great. and for all u guys on this page that make wierd comments about arabs slapping it together or germans and italians get toghether and this is what happens, grow up, lets c if u can design a hot dog let alone a car. A real car enthusiast finds the qualities and uniqness of a whip he/she does not criticize it and a make it a racial weapon. Grow the fuk up and if u gotta problem with what ive written here email me at east_side_romeo@hotmail.com id be more than happy to fix ur prolems!

Well the air scoops on the back viewed from the front are alright, but the front looks like a Yaris/ Enzo/ Subaru mutant and the back end has the face of a crack whore, complete with twelve rods in its mouth. Never. Ever. Make. This. Car.
Either go curvy or go straight and hard, don’t go swoopy hard straight curves.

Nothing to worry about folks – this monstrosity is simply a modified, rebodied Diablo, same as the Coatl and Eros GT1. All 3 are designed by Argentinian Joan Ferci.

It’s not a new Lamborghini model, and I’m surprised that Lamborghini has allowed the car to retain their name.

Lambos are not supposed to have curves!!!!!!!!!!!!The elegance and grace of the bull relies heavily on its clear cut designs(like the murcielago-most beautiful lambo of all time).This is a cross breed of a japanese concept and a cheap alfa romeo!!

Sorry but am I missing something here? How on earth has this poor excuse for a virtual car fooled so many people? It seems to be the result of a poor combination of 3D modelling software and Photoshop created by an independant designer (probably a 16yr old in his bedroom).
As a member of the press for a supercar reviewing publication I can tell you that this ‘Lamborghini’ has never been acknowledged by Lamborghini themselves.
PLEASE, do not see this as the future of Lamborghini. It bears absolutely no resemblance to the latest prototype sketches I’ve seen. If you’ve seen the Lamborghini Reventon, you can basically imagine what the future Lamborghini’s will look like. The Reventon is currently Lamborghini’s inspiration for future models.
Trust me, there will never be a car as ugly as this that will wear the Lamborghini badge.
To finish off, who came up with that ridiculous name? All Lamborghini’s are named after bulls. I find it hard to believe that there’s ever been a bull named ‘Alar’.

Change is in all things, take a look at Mercedes Benz who styled two round headlights only to realize thier mistake and finaly merge them into a single headlamp again.

It’s important to remember that this is the third Diablo rework and not a production model. Let the sods make it by hand, toil over it until the persperation pours off thier brow.. it is a flash in the pan.
