This is the Monterossa Speedster and it could be the craziest Lamborghini Gallardo-based supercar ever conceived.
This unique creation has been built by a small company dubbed DRVN out of California. While this is currently the only example is existence, the company plans to build 15 units for customers.
To create the car, DRVN Concepts started by taking a Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale and stripping it back to its bare shell. The roof was then cut off and new bracing was installed into the doors to ensure the supercar remains nice and rigid. The entire supercar was then rebuilt with all-new parts and now barely even resembles a Lamborghini.
The front of the Monterossa Speedster incorporates a sculpted hood, an eye-catching bumper, and a forged carbon fiber splitter. It also features thin LED headlights and part of the hood is also finished in forged cabin. The car has then been fitted with a set of aftermarket wheels and all-new door panels.
Things are particularly striking at the rear where the engine and transmission have been left completely exposed. DRVN Concepts has also equipped the car with a stunning carbon fiber diffuser and a pair of small LED taillights.
DRVN Concepts took design inspiration from motorcycles in creating the Monterossa Speedster and has confirmed that it has a curb weight of just 2,808 lbs (1,273 kg) with a 47/53 front-to-rear weight distribution. It doesn’t appear as though any upgrades have been made to the Gallardo’s standard 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V10.
