WIP Lamborghini Pipistrello Spider.... 1989 batmobile turned into a Lambo concept

UPDATE (24 Feb 2020)

I thought I had completed the body... shape coming up nicely

added headlights...

but so many people have pointed out that the big air-intake looks wrong, that I have decided to do something about it. So while I was about ready to lay down the base coat... its back to the chopping mat and watch this space!

ORIGINAL POST

My current project is turning one of the classic batmobile cars from the 1989 movie into a Lamborghini concept car, which i am calling the Pipistrello (italian for Bat).

I have chopped off the wings off the rear, opened all the vents, covered all the gun turret holes etc, taken off the roof (its goingo to be a spider). 

I've also sourced some sport seats and new rims as well - here are some initial mockups post the first coat of primer as well. 

here is one with the rims but pre primer. 

Still lots of work to do on shaping the body - I'm going to add embedded headlights on the front, and some rear-view mirrors. So a long long way to go to ge this super smooth. 

Will keep you posted!

So I was going to leave it, but a few people have commented on this (including on finescalemodeler).... so I am now thinking of goingback to the drawing board and changing the front end. watch this space!
