Who can forget the wonderful wedge-shaped concept and production cars, initially from Bertone and then from Pininfarina, Italdesign and other studios in the late 1960s, and which influenced car designers from all around the world well through the 1980s? The most impressive of these wedge-influence cars where shaped like they could fit right under a gigantic door.Even today, young designers look at concepts like Bertone's 1970 Lancia Stratos HF Zero concept for inspiration in their work. Mohammad Hossein Amini Yekta is one such designer who wanted to bring "wedge: into the 21st centurywith a new concept study for a Lamborghini sports car named the Ganador.
Yekta created the project in collaboration with Lamborghini during his first semester of the 2011-12 Academic Year of the Masters Program at Milan-based SPD.
"The idea is very simple - designing a super sport, having in mind the design values of Lamborghini and at the same time keeping the simplicity while all the designs are going to be over complex," says Yekta.
According to the designer, the main feature of the concept is the division between the lower and upper section "with a very powerful line which goes around the body".
Yekta explains: "This line gives the pointy and aggressive look to the car and also appears as if the upper part is reflected on the lower. The transparent "see trough" upper body part with clean surfaces, sharp edge and crystalline volume in contrast with the muscular and athletic form in the lower part and a powerful heart underneath resemble a gentleman with a muscular body, wearing a tuxedo."
