    MonaroSS V12 (Espada) Front engined Coupe and Convertible Lambo

    So, Lamborghini are supposed to show a new front-engined V12 Coupe at Geneva.
    If it follows the Estoque, then here are my suggestions for it and a drop top...

    Those giant rear kick ups look terrible.

    I like the front side vent, but the rear one has to go.

    Other than that..me likey.

    Tat first one is very Espada. Which is ok by me
    One of my favourite Matchbox cars when I was a kid was of the Lamborghini Marzal (?). I think that was the show car that morphed into the production Espada. It had huge glass gullying doors I think.

    the first while quaint (and well done retro) would never sell - looks out of sync with what Lambo stands for today - that rounded greenhouse ...

    the last one I like but good luck looking behind you to back up - you'd have to go with a rearview camera haha baby got back!

    I've always liked the Estoque concept. A V12, in a sedan styled after the F-22. Poor awesome sauce.
    Looks fantastic as a 2 door/convert as well!
    Thank you troops.

    I've never seen one of these before!! Not the prettiest 60's Lambo concept, but I'm really digging the simplicity of it.
    Thank you troops.

    Yes the Espada was a request from another member in a Lambo news thread, but was a lot of fun doing.

    As to the reasoning for the high rear on the others, I was thinking about what have Lambo's been known for in recent times? Being all mid-engined they have all, especially the V12's, had massive rear sections and bad rear vision. It's almost a design feature now.... The rear mass of Lamborghini's seems almost to be pushing the rest of the car down the road...
