Finally, the moment we’ve been waiting for…after 6 teaser images and one leaked image, we have finally come to a point where we have good photos of the brand new Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, or Sixth Element.

At just 999kg (2,202 lbs), the brand new Lamborghini features 0-62 mph takes only 2.5 seconds and top speed is well above 186 mph – reported as 217.5 mph.

Lamborghini claims to be the worldwide leader in carbon-fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) technology and with the radical extreme lightweight concept as its proof.  In the press conference Lamborghini states they are, “the only vehicle manufacturer in the world to have mastered the complete CFRP process across a range of technologies, from 3D design through simulation, validation, production and testing – all in a state-of-the-art industrial process that stands for the very highest quality standards.”  The result, “an unbelievable degree of driving fun, concentrated on absolutely sensational dynamics.”

The carbon fiber body not only has the monocoque cell but also to the front frame structure, exterior panels and crash boxes.  Elsewhere, carbon fiber is used in major suspension components, wheels and the drive shaft.  Materials such as Pyrosic, which is an advanced glass-ceramic matrix composite, is used in the tailpipes.

They say the Sixth Element uses triangles as the theme of the car, as you might see diamond cut headlamps, deep openings in the hood, door handles, side panel openings and mirror stalks.

See we’ve got just pure greatness in this car. Waiting until the reviews come in…
