The Lamborghini Diamante Envisions Lamborghini as an Ecofriendly Powerhouse by 2023
The Lamborghini Diamante Hints At A Greener Future
Updated September 26, 2018
In the year 2023 Thomas Granjard dreams of a world that is running low on fossil fuels, yet a world that is resilient enough to cope and rebuild. Granjard sees top automobile manufacturers turning to green energy and still produce quality cars. His most ambitious idea is a total overhaul of Lamborghini which he admires for its speed and performance. Rather than except a toned down green version, Granjard keeps the power and performance while going electric in his Lamborghini Diamante Concept.
Granjard is Lamborghini Diamante Concept is like a hand sculpted diamond, it has many ridges and sharp pointed edges. When moving the vehicle does not have a static design, with aerodynamics in mind the Lamborghini Diamante Concept uses movable wings on the back of the vehicle that the vehicle will automatically rotate to maximize speed in the given situation.
The interior of the Lamborghini Diamante Concept has driver interaction in mind. The vehicle wants the driver/passenger to not only get a rush from top speeds but also make them feel like they are an integrated part of it. To accomplish this, the vehicle uses an interactive center console, extremely snug and comfortable seating (most likely a premium leather). The windows enclose the entire vehicle leaving virtually no blind spots for drivers.
With sustainable development in mind the Lamborghini Diamante Concept uses 150 kg worth of 15 kWh Lithium Ion batteries in conjunction with biofuels. These batteries give the driver a maximum range of 900 km (559 miles) of range when on a combination of biofuels and battery and 150 km (93 miles) of range on all electric. The power of the car comes from 4 electric motors giving the car a maximum of 800 BHP and 1600 nM of torque. Drivers looking for even more power can upgrade to get a Kers (Kinetic energy recovery system) package that would be similar to those found in formula one, the extra energy recovered can crank the BPH to 965. Curb Weight of the vehicle should be around the Tesla Model S because of the weight the batteries bring, around 4,000 pounds would be imaginable.
In conclusion, the Lamborghini Diamante Concept provides an interesting look into the future. The roughly sculpted diamond design easily catches eyes, and the power coming from green sources will surely attract those that are eco-conscious. Thomas Granjard designed the concept for a 2023 release but with heads turning, Lamborghini may look to take attributes of the car and incorporate it in their current vehicle lines sooner!
