inspiration: not comfortably functional or practical but who cares
I know this is a jewelry blog not a car blog, but this is the stuff that continues to inspire my metalwork. This car in particular is one of my favorites – the Lamborghini Countach – owner says this is a ’71 but I thought the first year was a ’74 – maybe this is a prototype… either way its incredible… outrageous, where form does not follow function. Yes completely impractical, but really who cares. Designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone (couldn’t love more), these crisp sharp lines look like a futuristic origami spaceship… PURE STYLING and absolutely HOT.
