Lamborghini Ankonian Concept Photos


Lamborghini Ankonian Concept

Wowza! Last week was the week of multi Lamborghini Concepts matched by a pretty cool looking one-off Ferrari P540 Superfast Aperta! First we saw the Lamborghini Toro Concept, then the Lamborghini Madura and now the Lamborghini Ankonian Concept! The Ankonian is by far my favorite even if it’s only a outrageously murdered out looking Lamborghini Concept (for now). I definitely think it’s far sexier than the Lamborghini Reventon.
