Spatial calculation in design? This stunning Lamborghini concept car was designed entirely in VR Yanko Design

As a community of people who literally help build new technologies for the world, designers are not new to VR-based tools. AR/VR headsets have been around for nearly a decade now, and designers have formed perhaps one of the largest demographics to use these devices to sketch, model, render, and review designs. With the announcement of the Vision Pro headset, Apple takes a pivot towards spatial computing, and it only seems that VR/AR/MR tools will become much more democratized in the future, not only from a design point of view, but also from a visual sight. end of the aid, allowing consumers/customers to see the products before buying them. In this case, you wouldn’t have to travel to see a car like this Lamborghini Vision Event Horizon, you could just put on a headset and enjoy the car’s visual aesthetic virtually or spatially, as Apple would probably say.

Designed by Taiwan-based Lewis Lin, the Lamborghini Vision Event Horizon is a next-generation hybrid supercar underpinned by VRAD, or Virtual Reality Assisted Design, a natural progression of years of CAD or Computer Assisted Design. Lin modified his existing workflow, using tools like Procreate for sketching, Gravity Sketch for modeling, and then KeyShot for rendering. Using a VR drawing/modeling program like Gravity Sketch helped Lin experiment with the overall design of the car as he built it. Proportions and details made much more sense when viewed to scale, and the overall design of the car stood out much more when viewed beyond the confines of a flat 16:9 desktop monitor or laptop screen.

The Lamborghini Vision Event Horizon is a stunning car that amplifies the Italian marque’s design language in an effort to differentiate itself from the company’s older ICE cars. A common trend with electric or even hybrid cars is to adopt a simple metallic paint job, which the Vision Event Horizon does too similarly to the Polestar cars or most Prius seen on the road. However, unlike the above, the Vision Event Horizon also embraces Lamborghini DNA, with an edgy and aggressive exterior, angular panels and a distinctive wedge-shaped side profile.

What stands out about this car is the treatment of the headlights and taillights, which feels slightly different from other Lamborghinis. The front of the car gives me Acura NSX GT3 Evo vibes, albeit with crowbar-shaped LED strip headlights. The rear highlights Lamborghini’s Y-shaped taillights with a more contemporary redesign. The twin exhausts right below it also scream power, though given its hybrid drivetrain, there’s a sense of reassurance that the power too is complemented by clean energy.

The Vision Event Horizon can accommodate two people in its spacious and comfortable interior. Lin only modeled the exterior, so it’s hard to tell what the interior looks like or what’s under the hood. If it’s a real modern Lamborghini, the engine will be located at the rear, just below the three fins which help with downforce and cornering, as well as act as antennas to help amplify the cellular/radio signal inside the car. ‘car.

Lin explained her entire design process on her Behance page. In this project, I used GRAVITY SKETCH to enter virtual reality after drawing and used the sketch as a basis to quickly produce a realistic scale three-dimensional model in space. The sensory stimulation provided by the 3D spatial model is not accessible in 2D sketches. It allows me to extract more distinct thoughts and ideas early in the design, giving me a more holistic picture, she said.
I draw a rough sketch in Procreate and this is used as a foundation to create the basic structure in Gravity Sketch using the stroke function and arranging the uneven surfaces. After completing the exploratory model, I imported the model into Rhinoceros to satisfy the final model.
