Not to mention that Lamborghini has used Spanish names consistently over its time as a car maker. Countach was an exception of course.

Looks good, esp from REAR 3/4 view. However, I'm getting a little tired of the giant-wedge body.

Now you know how I feel when every Porsche must be a caricature of the 911.

Yea, they're stuck. It seems like the design elements that are unique to Porsche aren't very flexible. For example, the round headlamps, very round body, and fenders atop the wheels that sit slightly taller than the rest of the hood. You change those, people won't recognize it's a Porsche. It's not like the Hofmeister kink and kidney grill on BMW's -you can slap that on anything and it would look like a BMW.

Bottom line: the more they keep the same design language the harder it is to change. ( Lamborghini !!! )

Bottom line: a long-nosed, front-engined V12 2+2 coupe would be a great Lamborghini
