In about 18 months from now, in October of 2013, Lamborghini will celebrate its Golden Jubilee. While we expect a fitting tribute from Lamborghini to mark the 50 years from the day Ferruccio Lamborghini launched the company that bears his name to challenge Ferrari, independent designers have already begun spinning their own tributes.
The Lamborghini Ferruccio concept pictured here is the work of Mark Hostler, a transportation design student at Staffordshire University.
Hostler's overly aggressive and hard-edged concept is said to blend the shapes and design details of various Lamborghini supercars from different eras.
These include the low windshield and read end design of the original Countach, the softer and more rounded front fenders of the Miura and the jet-fighter lines of the recent crop of Lamborghinis such as the Reventon and the Aventador LP700-4.
In Hostler's mind, a supercar like the Ferruccio concept should combine tradition with modernity and as such, he designed it to be equipped with a 5.0-liter V12 engine featuring twin-turbochargers and a direct-injection system.
You can take a look at the photos and the video of the Lamborghini Ferruccio concept right after the break.
