Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

“The excellent feedback and the numerous requests we’ve had from our customers have really convinced us to embark on the challenge of producing a vehicle with unique characteristics. We are proud that what a year ago was just a ‘technology demonstrator’ of future super sports cars, even though in working order, will become a small series reality. Only 20 units of the new Sesto Elemento super sports car will be produced, and will be destined only for track use. We’re planning to deliver the first cars at the beginning of 2013,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini’s CEO, in Frankfurt.

The Sesto Elemento has been in the rumor mill for quite a while. Like Stephan mentioned above, it will be limited to 20 models — for street use only. It is much faster than the brand new Aventador, which can go 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, in comparison to the Sesto Elemento which can do 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds and is probably a lot more expensive as well, though there’s no word on pricing yet.

UPDATE: Stephan Winklemann has said in an interview that the starting price of the new Sesto Elemento will start at $2 million (€1.6 million), according to Washington Post (link will open in new page.)





Lamborghini Sixth Element Teaser Photo 6

Finally, the end of the Sixth Element photos...I hope

Once again, I believe, this is the final teaser image Lamborghini will be giving out. What makes me think so, along with a load of others?

The car’s name. It’s called the Lamborghini Sixth Element, or Sesto Elemento Italian for Sixth Element, which represents the sixth element in our periodic table of the elements.

You notice this is #6. Carbon. This will represent the main car, carbon, Sesto Elemento.

Well Lamborghini clearly has done a good job on this. Just time we await the final release of the car, which shows in my previous post.
