Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Is A Bat Crazy Concept You Have To See To Believe

Before Pagani entered its hat into the supercar segment with the radical Zonda, Lamborghini was the brand to beat when it came to over-the-top designs. Lamborghini’s more recent blueprints aren’t as insane as some of its older vehicles, but the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio brings crazy back.

Last November, Lamborghini unveiled the Terzo Millennio Concept, an electric hypercar that was the brainchild of a collaboration between the iconic automaker and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the concept in the flesh, but our photographer got to spend some one-on-one time with the vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show and the pictures are just too good not to share.

The Terzo Millennio – Italian for “Third Millennium” – is the brand’s way of looking into the future, and boy does the concept look like it belongs in a sci-fi movie. It’s got the wedge shape that we’ve come to love and the rampaging bull on the front, but other than that, the concept is more in line with a spaceship than a car.

The front end is particularly impressive with a snake-like front fascia, Y-shaped headlights, a front splitter that could double as a snowplow, and a windshield that looks like it’s from a plane. The wheels are also impressive.

As a concept, the car’s obviously a little farfetched. I mean, a self-healing energy-harvesting carbon-fiber body? That’s got to be fiction. But that’s what the Terzo Millennio’s all about – a look into the distant future.

Electric vehicles are starting to take over, and if you look at what automakers are doing, the electric future is going to have funny-looking cars that can operate on their own. It may just be a concept, but it’s nice to know that Lamborghini’s still thinking about enthusiasts.

As a Lamborghini fan, I don’t have a problem calling the Terzo Millennio my favorite concept from the brand. It might be one of the greatest concepts ever made, too.

  • I don’t know, I never really like the concept. Too over the top and I just felt that future Lamborghini shouldn’t be too complicated.

      disagree with you, lambos have always been over the top bonkers, until the germans made it a slick “exotic”. this is exactly what they should pursue, other wise no name Paganini and konigseafdfsdlfhkfasdf will take them down. you want slick and pansy cars look at audi r8 and such.

    You see this and I want to slap the Lamborghini designers on the back of the head and say: cut it out!

    Horrible, cartoonish, overworked, unbalanced… Lamborghini is installed into another universe of their own… Pathetic car design

    I like it, except for the greenhouse. My Photoshopped version is on top, the original below. My favorite parts are the open wheel well vents on the sides and at the rear.

      Well done, I definitely like your version better.

    • Astonman

      I like your version better. If they every built it – I’m pretty sure the A pillar will be like yours. Good job

  • SteersUright

    I don’t care what powers this, just make it!

  • “Lamborghini was the brand to beat when it came to over-the-top designs” No, they used to make extremely beautiful cars that were mad but not over the top. This however, is garish and vulgar. Lamborghini has the talent to make this looking extreme as well as beautiful but it’s clear to see that none of them work there anymore.
