Say Hello to Lamborghini’s Sesto Elemento… Italian for ‘sixth element’ the Sesto Elemento is an explosive two-seater, high-performance, limited edition supercar from the luxury sportscar manufacturer.
This particular model’s name, ‘Sesto Elemento’, is a reference to the sixth element on the periodic table – Carbon – in recognition of the car’s extensive use of carbon fiber. Everything from the prock-shaft, to the suspension and even the wheel rims are forged from Carbon.
Engineers at Lamborghini’s design house in the province of Bologna were so obsessed with reducing weight that the Sesto Elemento doesn’t even come with paint – Instead the car is covered in specs of crystals embedded in the body, from which it gets its color. The body too, is nothing to sneeze at… It’s made from a revolutionary blend of carbon and plastic developed jointly by Lamborghini Automobili and aircraft manufacturer Boeing.
Weighing-in at less than a ton, the Sesto Elemento is the lightest Pasta rocket the company has ever produced. Powered by a monstrous 5.2 liter, V-10 engine borrowed from the Lamborghini Gallardo, the limited edition supercar produces a staggering 570 horsepower. Boasting a 0 – 60 mph time of just 2.5 seconds, many claim it’s faster than both the Bugatti Veyron and the Hennessey Venom GT.
But the most nimble, sharp and mental Lamborghini ever produced doesn’t come cheap… The ludicrous $3 MILLION dollar price-tag ensures the truly limited-edition supercar is only produced for the Lamborghini ‘elite’.
