Nessun Vada: No Retro Lambos

Nessun Vada: No Retro Lambos

Posted Image

Lamborghini will not build any retro-themed vehicles in the foreseeable future, according to CEO Stephan Winkelmann. "Retro design is not what we are here for. So we won’t do the Miura, even as a limited edition," Mr. Winkelmann told the U.K. Car magazine.

And old designs aren't the only thing the Italian automaker will be leaving in the past. The company also won't resurrect retired nameplates, according to Winkelmann. He said spiritual successors to the the Espada or LM002 could be built, but they would go by new names.

Because retro is retro and it's rather pointless. How is one able to go forward with it?

"No retro lambos" is a hilarious statement. The Countach was introduced on the show circuit in 1970 and was still being built as the diablo how late- 2000+? I don't know what some would consider worse: producing a modernized version of one of the best long-gone 'super' car designs ever penned or sitting on your fat lazy ass and letting a design stagnate & rot on the showroom floor for 30 years (oops- some might prefer 'resting on their laurels' here), unless you call tacking blocky federal safety bumpers & lights on, a mid-cycle refresh. :lol:
