Lamborghini has released images of its Embolado Concept. Penned by Luca Serafini -- an Italian design student -- the Embolado was inspired by the Spanish festival, Toro Embolado. "The choice of the name was the first step towards the creation of this concept," says Serafini. The festival of Toro Embolado involves putting flammable material on a bull's horns, lighting them on fire and then releasing the bull into the streets, which sounds more akin to the Lamborghinis of yesteryear.

While there has been no official word as to whether the Embolado will make production -- Lamborghini has yet to even announce at which auto show it will debut the concept -- the car could indicate the future styling for an entry-level Lamborghini. Giving further credence to the design exercise is the fact that Serafini has also designed a Superleggera version.
