The Lamborghini Athon is a concept car designed by Bertone for Lamborghini. It was first displayed at the 1980 Turin Motor Show.

Widely praised, the design was based on the, then out of production, Silhoutte chassis. It was a sleek topless roadster, with a finely detailed, futuristic interior and powered by a 3L, 260 bhp (194 kW) V8 engine. The vehicle was never intended to be put into production, but Lamborghini's financial troubles at the time didn't help matters any. It did the show car circuit and then was sent to the Bertone museum.
