Ever since the Lamborghini Sesto Elemnto was introduced back in 2010 the whole world was waiting to see if it will finally hit the streets as a production car. As outlandish as it first seemed, Lamborghini signed off the Sesto for a strictly limited production run, but it took them a long time to prepare it.
Now as the brand is celebrating its 50th birthday, the Sesto seems to be finally ready.
The Sesto Elemento being a very special car with limited production number, Lamborghini had to devise a whole new production method for it. The traditional way of putting the car together does not work for this 1.5 million Euro hyper car.
Lamborghini is apparently producing the Sesto in the same facilities, and using the same methods, they make the prototypes. The technicians are putting together no more than 20 Sesto Elemento models, each featuring an advanced carbon fiber monocoque structure and carbon reinforced plastic body panels.
Despite the high-tech body, the Sesto has the same, rather old, V10 engine as the Gallardo Supperleggera with 570 horsepower. It is a much better performer, though, seeing as the Sesto weighs no more than 2,200 pounds or 1,000 kg. As a result it is capable of hitting 100 km/h from zero in 2.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of over 320 km/h.
