Nearly 50 years after their initial collaboration, these Italian carmakers are at it again, bringing us the Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato Concept — a dressed-up Gallardo with some of the most absurdly-beautiful curves we've seen in a while. With aggressive front fenders, a wind deflector placed in front of the windshield, wraparound glass, bubbles, and air intakes galore, the car pays homage to past collaborations with the Milanese coach-maker. Around back, it sports a shortened trunk to help show off some of the mechanicals emerging from its 5.2-liter V10 that produces nearly 600 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque through all four wheels.
Mixing classic Italian body construction with the bulldog-like looks of a Mini sounds like a recipe for disaster, but instead, the MINI Superleggera Vision is actually pretty striking. The result of a collaboration between MINI and Milan-based coach builders Touring Superleggera, this droptop features hand-shaped metal sheeting on the exterior, a high-end interior boasting materials like leather, aluminum, and black chrome, and an electric drivetrain that delivers a truly modern driving experience.
Most of us can agree that the Mini in its current iteration is a far cry from the Mini it draws its name (and increasingly less obvious design inspiration) from — but it goes on, building cars whose resemblance to the original doesn't go much beyond the badge. The latest in this trend is the MINI Paceman Adventure Concept, based on the Paceman — which is itself a two-door cousin of the Countryman — this Mini gets its rear cropped to form a sort of cute little truck. And though details are limited, the car does sport the same all-wheel-drive found in the Paceman, and likely a 1.6-liter I-4 engine. So while that does give it some truck street cred, we're not convinced you'd ever want to take it to the job site.
