Widebody Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Looks Like a Pro Racer, Needs Explaining

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento hardly strikes one as the kind of machine that requires assistance in any department (more on this in the form of a reminder, below). However, given the Internet's appetite for modding these days, I've recently come across a rendering that portrays a Sesto Element taken down the aftermarket path.

Remember when Lamborghini released a Performance Manifesto back in 2010? Sant'Agata Bolognese talked about extra performance being achieved though making machines lighter rather than adding power alone.

Truth be told, the showroom translation of the said intentions were only partial, as, for instance, the Huracan and the Aventador aren't the lightest machines in their classes. Nevertheless, we at least got the Sesto Elemento.

Only 20 elements of this Gallardo-era toy were built, but with each one tipping the scales at just 999 kg (2,202 lb), it received plenty of attention.

With that out the way, we can return to the rendering sitting before us. This pixel play comes from Khyzyl Saleem, a digital artist who constantly likes to do away with norms and conventions.

Motivation for the Sesto Elemento comes from the Gallardo's 570 hp 5.2-liter V10 and it looks like the said pixel wielder decided to let the engine alone (read: no twin-turbo kit was added). Given the fact that the Sesto Element is a track car, the linear power delivery, instant throttle response and the aural brilliance of a naturally aspirated engines are assets that can't be ignored.

Speaking of circuits, the toy seems to have been taken closer to the racecar look, with this being a brilliant occasion to remind you of the V10 racecars the Italian automotive producer builds.

However, there's no reason for purists to fret about this contraption  - the artist was asked if this render had been done as a comission for an actual build and the answer was negative, so no actual Sesto Elemento will be modded in this fashion.
