Well, here a piece of news for those Lamborghini fans out there. The Italian super car brand has just given the nod to produce the Sesto Elemento (Sixth Element) in limited numbers. The news was actually reported by a reputed French automotive program Auto Moto’s website. We can only hope that this news turns out to be true.
Lamborghini had displayed its Sesto Elemento concept at the Paris Motor Show in September/October. Officially it was meant to be a demonstration of Lamborghini’s new guiding philosophy of lighweight components and reeled in engines. The car featured a naturally-aspirated 5.2 liter V10 engine from the LP 570-4 Superleggera with 570 PS (419 kW / 562 bhp). The car has a curb weight of just 999 kg due to its extensive use of carbon and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics which includes a carbon-fiber monocoque structure.
The Sesto Elemento comes with a permanent all-wheel drive transmission and a power-to-weight ratio of 1.75 kilograms per horsepower. The 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint time clocks in at 2.5 seconds, while top speed will be well above 300 km/h (186 mph) – reported as 350 km/h (217.5 mph) prior to the Paris unveiling.
And here comes the best part. We had earlier in the blog mentioned that the car would be produced in limited numbers. By limited numbers, we mean 7 – 10 units only. Now that we have highlighted the exclusiveness of the car, here is a sticker shock attached with the car. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will be priced at around €2.5 million/$3.44 million/£2.15 million.
