Locked away deep within cavernous buildings owned by automakers are teams of designers and engineers. They get little exposure to sunlight, short bathroom breaks and limited contact with the outside world. Yet these dedicated professionals sometimes create some incredible machines that inspire us, and never make it to production. This is for all of those awesome concept cars management thought nobody would buy, but we would and maybe you would too.

We’re not talking about the original car, of course, but the concept that was built as part of the Lamborghini brand’s 40th anniversary.
