Thomas Granjard creates the Lamborghini Diamante Concept

Article by Christian A., on December 2, 2013

If you thought that the Lamborghini Egoista and Veneno were extreme, you’d better take a look at this 2023 Lamborghini Diamane Concept rendered by Thomas Granjard. Apparently, Granjard took his inspiration from “the lines of an aggressive, powerful, attacking bull” and the “cut of a diamond”.

Lamborghini Diamante Concept is powered by four-individual electric motors that deliver a total output of 800 hp and an incredible 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque. Moreover, the concept car is envisioned with a KERS system that offer an extra 165 hp.

The total output of the concept is 965 hp. Still, this is not all as the Diamante has two micro jet turbines that are compatible with a variety of fuels such as diesel, CNG or bio-fuel. These turbines produce energy through a generator for the 15 kW lithium-ion battery pack. The total range of the car is 900 km (559 miles) or 150 km (93 miles) when using just the electric motors.

Automobili Lamborghini is unveiling at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show what it touts as its most uncompromising open super sports car so far – the Lamborghini Aventador J. Offering its pilot and co-pilot an inexpressible experience of power and dynamics, the Aventador J is a real technology showcase with its powerful engine delivering 515 kW (700 hp), groundbreaking solutions and new materials highlighting the carmaker’s expertise in carbon fiber technology.

Lamborghini describes the new Aventador J as a radically open vehicle whose exterior and interior blend into each other. Interestingly, the roof isn't the only thing missing in the new Aventador J, but also its front windshield. This means that to be able to take the Aventador J to speeds of more than 300 km/h, the vehicles should be laden with the right equipment to do so. Offering a highly exclusive experience via driving at the limit, the new Lamborghini Aventador J is a unique one-off piece of art that is fully functional for road use.

Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, remarked that the new Aventador J, is the most definitive form, so far, of the brand DNA. He added that the Aventador J is as extreme and as uncompromising as only a Lamborghini can be.

Winkelmann described the new Aventador J as the carmaker’s most radical open supersports car, with a name derived from Lamborghini’s tradition and an unconventional design with groundbreaking technology. He quipped that the new Aventador J is the proof that, despite the rules, Lamborghini could always make people dream.

Technically, the new Lamborghini Aventador J is derived from the Aventador. Nonetheless, it embodies a brand tradition that Lamborghini has been implemented through the years. For example, the 1970 Jota was essentially derived from the Lamborghini Miura, but boasts of a comprehensive redesign and higher levels.

The one-off Jota managed to become a legend enough to entice Miura owners to modify their vehicle to look like the Jota. The letter J is derived from the rules of the FIA world motorsport organization – with "Appendix J" defining the technical specs of race cars in several classes.
