This week, Lamborghini debuted its latest art car in Milan, Italy. Artist Paolo Troilo used a Lamborghini Huracán EVO as his canvas to create "Minotauro" (Minotaur).

The car's design was created to depict myth, the body of a man and a bull. Its black-on-white nature delivers an expression of "dynamism, power, and innermost emotions that the artist experienced while driving the Huracán EVO" according to a press release.

"Time. I am enamoured with the idea of slowness, and I have always championed it as a key to pleasure, culture, beauty and success. But there are some encounters that change you," explained Paolo Troilo, creator of the work.

"Seeing the Lamborghini Huracán EVO and trying it out suggested to me that there are also things capable of releasing the same energy with acceleration, with speed, with momentum. I heard the sound of the wind picking up as the space narrowed and time distorted: I felt a flowing wind and used it to paint on the muse itself, the inspiration of these emotions: the Huracán, my Minotauro."

Troilo's painting evolves as the eye moves over the car, representing the male body as a means of communication, according to the release. The man is fused with a bull, the symbol of Automobili Lamborghini.

A combination of the two is meant to express the "concept of myth expressed in the indomitable – supernatural and almost animalistic – force exuded by the man's figure".

The clenched fists on the hood of the car are meant to parallel the look of a bull's horns.

"It was inspiring to meet Paolo Troilo and his artistic expressiveness. In our company we are accustomed to art and the way it has always influenced our cars," commented Christian Mastro, Marketing Director at Automobili Lamborghini.

"However, when our product and the emotions it brings come together with the sensibilities of an artist like Troilo, something different and exceptionally unique like 'Minotauro' is created, and we are very proud of this."
The car will be on display through November 13 at Palazzo Serbelloni at Corso Venezia, 16 in Milan.
