It's limited to just 15 units.
No one would describe Lamborghini's creations as pedestrian or subtle; the brand prides itself on designing outlandish vehicles. Whether it's the high-riding Urus super SUV or the range-topping Aventador S, their cars are just as jaw-dropping to look at as they are to drive.
But for some, having an 'off-the-rack' supercar just won't do, even if it's a Lambo. DRVN Concepts have created a vehicle for people like this. Called the Monterossa, it's based on the Lamborghini Gallardo and features a completely redesigned body, eschewing the roof and windscreen in the name of more dramatic styling.
Starting with a Gallardo as its base, the Monterossa shares very little with its donor vehicle. The overall look is more in line with a concept car, with angular styling and intricate styling details. With the bright red paintwork and gorgeous forged carbon fiber, the unique design has a resemblance to the KTM X-Bow track day special.
At the rear, you'll find a carbon diffuser and... little else. DRVN Concepts have clearly gone for a minimalist approach, with the Lamborghini's 600-horsepower V10 motor and suspension components exposed to the elements. While it's certainly more striking than a 'regular' Gallardo, style wasn't the main reason behind the design - reducing curb weight was the goal. In his walk-around video of the car, YouTuber Speed Phenom notes the mass sits around 2,800 lbs. The vehicle retains its all-wheel-drive layout.
According to DRVN Concepts Instagram page, the company notes that the Monterossa is built on the chassis of a second-generation Gallardo. With the massive weight reduction, it now boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 4.8 lbs/hp. Adding a supercharger boosts power to 800-hp, improving the aforementioned ratio figure to just 3.75 lbs/hp. Weight distribution is also improved, sitting at 47%/53%, compared to the stock Gallardo's 43%/57%.
The company describes the DRVN Monterossa as a "supercar meets superbike". Tooling for production is complete, with the design house limiting production to just 15 examples. If you want one, you'll need to act fast.
