The designer of the latest supercar from Lamborghini found his inspiration for the car’s design in what can only be described as a stream of consciousness. According to Forbes, lead designer Mitja Bokert attached images of fighter jets, venomous snake, and spaceships to a “mood board” while he worked on the Aventador S, the luxury automaker’s latest supercar.

Focusing the design on aerodynamics, the Aventador S also comes packed with a power-punch of speed, sporting a V12 engine that outputs 740 hp and does 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. The car’s top speed is 217.5 mph.

According to the company, the Aventador S will retail for $421,350.
