2016 Lamborghini Ankonian
Slavche Tenevski is a Lamborghini’s designer, he took the “underground” and “hardcore” black. The car is named “Ankonian” is kind of a famous bull with black hair, and is in accordance with the tradition of Lamborghini.
Slavche Tenevski not choose midengine supercar cliches(extreme width, cab forward, aggressive graphical elements), but a rather narrow body, cab backward classical GT silhouette, and complexity/combination of soft and angular surfaces. Instead of showing power and aggression through some wild graphical elements (for example headlights) I achieved the same through the complexity of the main body which is rather softly designed, (and has a flair of the Italian elegance), and the angular, stealthy and sharp elements which remind of shields.
Concerning the design language, he put the Reventòn style to the next level, even more aggressive and crazy, but yet elegant, and more harmonious
As the design process he brought back the tradition (we do it old school), instead of clay modeling CAD modeling. It takes approx. 6 months to really build the model and it is a great opportunity to try different possibilities on the surface and the proportion of management. How does this design does not look ‘artificial’, but mature, and because of the fact that he has a constant support by theLamborghini and Audi Advanced designers, final design has a professional touch.
Even though very crazy and on first glance complicated, all Ankonian lines and intersections work together. Due to the tension in the lines and the concave and convex surfaces there is an impression of a strong and dynamic body. The big canyons and the fact that the tail was put on a diet give it a very light appearance. In addition, the hot-rod stance gives it a push forward, and the symbolic presence of wings and the arrow-like door graphic make the car very dynamical, even when it is in standing position.
By leaving the usual headlight graphics, and having very thin OLEDs embedded between the surfaces, an eccentric and mysterious feeling is achieved. The same principle was applied at the back too, by doing an alien-like face with two big exhausts as eyes, and diffuser as mouth. Again, the lights are put on a position man would not expect.
