Loading...The FSX is a Ferrari concept car designed by Academy of Art University (San Francisco) graduate, Paul Kim. The name “FSX” stands for Ferrari Sedan Xperiment, because this is pretty much what this vehicle stands for, an unusual design experiment.

The vehicle is a four-door sedan powered by a naturally aspirated mid-mounted V12 engine. It is intended to be a car for people who enjoy going on road trips with friends or family, but also like the feeling of driving a sports car.

The FSX has floating A and C pillars that direct the airflow around the top of the car, into the engine bay, keeping the V12 engine cool. To provide downforce, air is passed through the revolving rear spoiler. Also at the front of the ride there’s an adjustable splitter, that directs air in the split radiators placed on each side of the Ferrari supercar.

Loading...After a number of special versions of the Murcielago, like the LP640, the LP 650-4 Roadster and the LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, it seems like the Italian designers are ready to bring in a replacement for the famous model: the Lamborghini Jota.

This new supercar has been seen in the cold lands of Scandinavia, where the Lamborghini engineers were testing the Jota. This car is apparently about the same size as the Murcielago and comes with a V12 engine with direct fuel injection, generating around 700 horsepower. It will also weigh less, thanks to the use of aluminium and carbon fiber for the body kit.

This model will also use all-wheel-drive, although this time Lamborghini could use a new system developed by Haldex. The design will probably be inspired from another Murcielago-based Lamborghini, the Reventon. Will the Jota be another upgraded version of the Murcielago, or the new supercar that will take its place? We’ll just have to wait and see!

Officially, only 20 Reventon units will be built, but keep praying, who knows? The new Lamborghini goes from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds, just like the Murcielago LP640. The beauty you can see in the pics attached to the article also includes most of the mechanical elements (plus engine) taken from LP640.

It’s got a 6.5 litre V12 engine with a total output of 650 HP and this 2 door sports car is a mid-engine four-wheel drive monster with a 6-speed e-gear.
