Lamborghini Sixth Element Headed for Production

Lamborghini is planing to bring the Sesto Elemento (Sixth Element) into producing, with company executives approving a plan that will see a limited number of units coming to the world, as reports. This has to be one of the most important supercar news we’ve ever released. But what makes this vehicle so special? Here’s the answer:

One common issue with modern cars is the fact that the ever increasing need for safety and comfort has lead to a dramatic weight increase. This can be seen in all the segments of the market, but one of the most affected species are the supercars, as weight spoils all-over performance, affecting acceleration, handling and deceleration.

Automotive producers are fighting this through the use of lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber and aluminum, but we’re still far from an era of true lightweight monsters. However, at this year’s Paris Auto Show, Lamborghini showed the world that such an achievement is possible, presenting the Sesto Element Concept.

The vehicle, which is a cold-blooded ultra-beefy beast tips the scales at only 999 kg (2,202) lbs, making Lamborghini’s Gallardo LP 570-4 Superlegerra’s (superlight) 1,340 kg (2,954) weight seem like a figure from the XXL department. All this was achieved through the use of carbon fiber for the monocoque structure and other elements, as well as carbon fiber reinforced plastics.

The Sesto Elemento borrows the by the LP 570-4 Superlegerra’s 570 hp 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 powerpalnt and four-wheel drive system. The 1.75 kg per hp power-to-weight ratio allows the slim beast to cover the 0 to 62 mph sprint in 2.5 seconds, offering a top speed that exceeds 186 mph (300 km/h) by a hefty value.

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will have a price of around EUR2.5 million ($3.44 million), with only 7-10 units being scheduled for production.
