    This wasn't designed by Ferrucio, Bertone did it. <!-- Signature -->

    Bravo, bravo. A very good looking design, not very popular, but I love it. Wow, a very good looking car, its old but hey, look at those lines. And the design looks very nice, none of that of the Muira, or Countach. Overall, it looks great, if I were a guy back in the 80s, I would love to drive this car, even now I would'nt mine driving it. What about you?<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Re: Lamborghini Fans Folder

    Lambo has always been good at combining strait edges with curves like Frank Loyd Wright. but this time they went tooo far too many strait edges the front dont look good either but it was nice and light but only a friggen v-8 not what I expect from lamborghini<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: Lamborghini Fans Folder

    Im pretty sure that this Lamborghini was based on the Urraco.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: Lamborghini Fans Folder

    i think this car is cool. il admit ist a bit boxy but still resembles the countach or urraco. i dont mind the v8 (bearing in mind the jalpa and silouete both had a 90 degree v8 and are some of the most sought after open top lambos in the world). it does look a bit strange but a clasic none the less.

    p.s. what do you lambo-loversout there think about a countach roadster post your replies on this sitenor e-mail me at lambofan_hv@hotmail.com<!-- Signature -->

  9. Re: Lamborghini Fans Folder

    This was to be the Urraco' predicessor - and to be based on the Countach - (when in actuallity, the Countach was based on the 1971 LP5000 - only one made) although, this concept never came to be. Only 1 was ever made - which lies in a museum.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: Lamborghini Fans Folder

    truly a bold design for 1974.<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: Lamborghini Fans Folder

    Those 70's concepts were wild. Their idea of the "future" was truly unique. God Bless em' <!-- Signature -->
     
  12. is that a countach?

    this looks a lot like a countach, (sorry if that's the wrong spelling) the holes on the tops? turn em into scoops, lower the decklid so u can see out the rear window (welllll kinda) and make the sideskirts go out, and the rims, i think its the countach concept
     
  13. Re: is that a countach?

    Yeah man, think you're right. Put a rear wing on that thing and you practicly got the Countach. But the Countach is much longer I think.

    keep the faith<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: is that a countach?

    I agree. That looks like it could be one of the old countachs but then again we'll just let Lamborghini decide that.
     
  15. Re: is that a countach?

    yea, maybe, but i think that the countach looks a lot better. this car has the diablo's wheels<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: is that a countach?

    How can you say it has the Diablo's wheeels - wouldent it be the other
    way around? Because these rims are Lambo's TRADEMARK. If the guys ever
    changed them, plenty-0-people wouldn't be happy... Well, anyways, the
    Lamborghini Bravo concept was origanally based on the Urraco. And this design led to the 1978 Sibilo. But Bravo really didnt have much to do with countach. the Countach was based on the Muira's evolution
    in the 1960's.<!-- Signature -->

    More and better Bravo pics here:
    http://www.lambocars.com/framed/others/bravoi.htm

    The Bravo was intended and extensively road- and track-tested to become a less-unaffordable "little brother" to the big, pricey V12 Countach. Marcello Gandini, the original designer of the Countach (then working on Bertone's behalf for Lamborghini), intentionally designed the Bravo to have a "family resemblance" to his original, "sano" Countach design (before all that cr@p got added to it over the years, like those clumsy scoops and that ridiculously unnecessary rear wing... %^).

    Based on a shortened chassis and V8 drivetrain from the Urocco, they eventually decided not to produce the Bravo, instead favoring the simpler (and cheaper!) alternative of simply modifying the Urocco to become the Silhouette and later Jalpa (both basically a Urocco with no back seats and different upper-rear bodywork). If you've ever stood next to a Countach, you'll recall that its size and proportions are a lot tighter than pictures alone might lead one to think, so you can guess how much smaller (albeit a bit taller) the "baby brother" Bravo would have been -- roughly Fiero-sized, but with a Lambo V8 in back (can you say, "power-to-weight ratio"? %^)!

    Which reminds me, I've seen a car around Tucson here that looks like it might be a Fiero spaceframe (something about the size and side-window/door proportions...) wearing bright-yellow replacement body panels based on the Bravo (esp. those front and rear louvers...)

    Just my buck two-eighty...

    The Countach took its design off this concept. (I think)<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Bravo, Bravo! Well done! ( NOT ! ! ! )

    This car looks ify. Yeah, 300 horses is quite a deal, but the styling could use some reconsideration. Nice rims, though. I don't like those air clog vents in the front, though. 2 or 3 is good. like on the Mustang Saleen models, but 6 stretching across the hood? Puleez.<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: Bravo, Bravo! Well done! ( NOT ! ! ! )

    Man it was just a concept... Without this car, I believe we wouldn't have had the Countach, and that would've been a shame wouldn't it.

  24. Re: Euhm...

    Gotta love that 1974 colour! Mmmm, beige
     
  25. What can you say about this? I think they builded it with lego cubes or something... It's weird to look at.

    keep the faith
