Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Concept

There are times when you’ve seen so many incredible super cars you just have to wonder “can it get any better’? Well, Lamborghini has an answer to that question and it’s a big “Yes!”. Check out the newly leaked pics from our friends at MotorCrave.com of the Concept Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, which means Sixth Element . I have to say the design level of this piece of art is a GrandSlam!

After yesterday’s leak, we figured Lamborghini would have no choice but to unveil its new concept today, and indeed it has. After dropping the sixth and final teaser, which we won’t waste any more time on, Lamborghini released photos and information on the concept.

The Sesto Elemento, which means Sixth Element, uses a carbon fiber monocoque tub and carbon fiber all over–front end frame, body panels, suspension parts, rims–pretty much everywhere you look. As such, it cuts hundreds of pounds over other Lamborghinis and comes in at a featherweight 2,202 lbs. (or 999 kg if you want to be catchy). The 570-hp 5.2-liter V10 engine has no problem pushing that light, skeletal body to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds on up to around 218 mph.

The car’s distinctive exterior is made with a fashion-out-of-function ethic, and the interior is stripped down to the most basic of basics–essentially an empty carbon tub with controls and padding in key places. Drop down below to see some more pictures and read the full story from Lamborghini’s press release.
