When during the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show Stephan Winkelmann officially confirmed that Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was going to be produced, we couldn't be more excited. A year and a half later new details on the super sports car made in Sant'Agata Bolognese have finally emerged: the production version should be unveiled at the end of the year to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Italian brand. Only 20 units will be built and each one will be coming with a staggering price tag of an estimated one million and a half Euros.
Thanks to the extensive use of CFRP Lamborghini Sesto Elemento has a power to weight ratio of only 1.75 kilograms per HP and an overall curb weight of just 999 kg (2,202 lb), which propel the ultra performing 570 hp V10 from standstill to 100 km / h (0-62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds at top speed of more than 320 km / h.
Each Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will be produced and assembled entirely at the new Lamborghini centre for advanced prototyping and assembly study, in order to give customers even higher quality than the standard sportscars. Each unit will be meticulously inspected by Lambo's engineers in order to guarantee absolute perfection.
The production Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will ultimately remain very similar to the concept unveiled almost three years ago at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, with the exception of its stiffness, which will be increased to improve handling. The architectural structure will boast better safety features and the interior – identical to the concept – will include individually moulded seats, which are part of the carbon fibre monocoque and specifically padded for extra comfort.
It is not yet clear when the Sesto Elemento will be unveiled. The 2013 Geneva Motor Show 2013 might be the perfect stage to unveil the limited special edition, considering that last year Lamborghini presented the one-off Aventador J at the same event.
