Monterossa Speedster has all the qualities of the perfect supercar
The DRVN Concepts team has created perhaps the world’s greatest Lamborghini Gallardo. The project, called the Monterossa Speedster, is a unique fully open car that has sacrificed body panels in the name of lightness and dynamism. The machine will be produced in limited edition, definitely offering a solid dose of what we want from Italian supercars.

According to DRVN experts, “the inspiration for Monterossa lies in motorcycle design”. The company’s founder Nick Renner dreamed of a supercar that embodies the mechanical beauty and inner experience of a superbike, with the raw emotion and appeal of an exotic car. “This combination creates a stark contrast between the smooth, sexy surface at the front of the car and the powerful V10, the suspension, the muffler and the rear components,” says Renner.

This means more than solid and deadly dynamics. To feel it, you will have to hurry and reach for it – the speedstar will be released in a limited series of 15 pieces. And for each of them you will need a helmet, because there is no windshield …
