The Lamborghini Raton Vision Gran Turismo – An Epitome of Art

Article by Christian A., on April 9, 2016

Lamborghini has been known to have built some of the most outlandish designs ever. From the flat and short 1974 Countach, the low-slung Aventador and Diablo, to the hulking and intimidating LM002 SUV, and even with limited edition models such as the Reventon, Veneno and the Centario, Lamborghini designers have always made it a point for it to look very Lamborghini – highly extraordinary, in other words.

For the longest time, Lamborghini has always pushed boundaries in creating exquisite and exotic looking cars that could catch anyone’s attention.

Italian designer Vittorio Serpetti created another Lamborghini masterpiece. The automotive designer is now working on the Aventador-based Lamborghini Raton, and it is slowly turning it into a head-turning artwork that Lamborghini fans would surely not want to miss.

The Aventador is designed to have the distinctive character and design that is especially Lamborghini. It has extremely powerful proportions with distinct lines and surfaces and a touch of muscularity in every detail.

It has a sharply refined front end and a low roofline as well as a distinct rear diffuser. Its form very much hints at speed and its lines highlight each functionality. The Aventador is truly an avant-garde and dynamic work of art.

The Raton on the other hand is the same as the low-slung Aventador but with a “Vision Gran Turismo” makeover. Serpetti’s Raton stands out because of its wacky shape that makes it all the more a spectacle for onlookers.

Raton is designed with out-of-this-world elements such as its spoilers coming out from the enclosed rear fenders, a smooth flowing engine cover that fuses into its bodywork, and aggressively scattered air vents and air intakes. It has a wedged proportion on top and a set of front wings just like the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante.

Serpetti’s take on the Raton will change the way we view it but will surely leave Lamborghini fans and critics curious. It will not look like the usual Raton and neither will it look like its platform Aventador save for a few giveaways like its glasshouse and the angular front fascia that is as usual covered by the number plate.

Other than that, the Lamborghini Raton Vision Gran Turismo is a new design that will set it apart from all others in its class. Sadly though, the Serpetti’s Lamborghini Raton Vision Gran Turismo is not set for production. Let’s just consider it as a constant reminder that art is everywhere, even in our treasured vehicles.

Not unless some rich and bored fan would pay cold cash in exchange for a limited-edition Raton Vision Gran Turismo, then we’ll just let our eyes feast on the magnificence of Serpetti’s art over our computer screens or in person if you’re lucky enough to get close to it.
