The stunning Lamborghini Murcielago is pretty much out, and its replacement, the Aventador LP700-4, has entered the public attention at the Geneva Auto Show this month. Yet, those who at some level felt touched by the super car icon are already envisioning a revival of the nameplate.

Dubbed Murcielago Next Generation, the concept we present here was created by IAAD Transportation design student Salvatore Simonetti. Taking inspiration from both the Murcielago and the Diablo, the concept presents itself as more of a successor of the latter than the former.

The body of the model is to be built, according to the wishes of the designer, using carbon fiber and kevlar, some of the materials currently (or soon-to-be) used on a large scale be the super car maker.

What lies under the hood of the model can be anybody's guess. As usual in concept studies, the main focus of the designer was not to envision a new propulsion system, but to create the premises for the creation of a new design language and, who knows, a new car.

This doesn't stop us, however, from wondering what would happen with all that kevlar if we placed the 6.5l V12 engine found on the new Aventador under the body of the New Generation. Complete with the Graziano ISR 7-speed automatic transmission and coupled with the aerodynamic lines of the model, perhaps the 2.9 seconds naught to sixty acceleration achieved by the Aventador would somehow become a thing of the past.
