The Sesto Elemento is an extremely rare car with only 20 units produced. The body, wheel rims, and major suspension parts are made of carbon fiber. It also uses glass-ceramic brake discs.
Winkelmann calls the Sesto Elemento a technology demonstrator and says it moves away from the machismo of 2007’s million euro Reventon special into new territory. Its recurring design theme is triangles; they guide cooling air to the front and are carried on to the roofline. Visit for more information.
Powered by a 5.2 liter V10 engine
The 5.2 liter V10 engine is the most powerful that Lamborghini has ever made. It pumps out 570 horsepower and is capable of going from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds. That is a lot of power for a car that is almost completely made from carbon fiber.
Virtually everything on the Sesto Elemento is made from carbon fiber, including the chassis, drive shaft and suspension components. This cuts the kerb weight to less than 1000 kilograms, or 2,200 lbs. That is a lot lighter than most cars, even super cars.
The designers at Lamborghini wanted to take the emphasis off horsepower and put it on power-to-weight ratio. With a curb weight of just 999 kilograms, this car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.5 seconds, which is faster than the Bugatti Veyron. The design is also focused on aerodynamics. It has sharp lines and precise angles that accentuate the wedge-like stance of the car.
Extremely light weight
Taking the name of the sixth element on the periodic table, the Sesto Elemento is Lamborghini’s ultimate effort to make their car as light as possible. Despite having a Gallardo Superleggera engine and all the other components required for driving, this extreme track-only vehicle weighs just 2,202 pounds.
Almost everything on the car is made out of carbon fiber and combines to form a monocoque that is as strong as it is lightweight. This includes the frame, suspension components, rims, and even the wing and the tail spoiler.
The resulting weight is so low that the car has an incredible power-to-weight ratio and can rip up the track with the best of them. This is especially true when it comes to the 570 horsepower V10 engine that powers it; a fact that is reflected in vesuvius TOH’s video of its debut on the track. The front and rear bodyshell are also manufactured as a single piece using forged composite technology.
Lamborghini is no stranger to carbon-fiber technology, but the Sesto Elemento takes it to the extreme. This concept, which takes its name from the sixth element on the periodic table, weighs just 999 kilograms (2,202 pounds). It is powered by the same 570-horsepower V10 engine that was used in the Gallardo Superleggera. Its front and rear are formed into a single carbon-fiber monocoque structure.
The car is able to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of over 300 km/h. Its lightweight frame and powerful engine make it a true game changer. Although the Sesto Elemento was not produced in large numbers, it remains a true symbol of innovation and power.
The Sesto Elemento (sixth element) is an astoundingly fast vehicle. It can accelerate to 60 MPH in just 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 221 MPH. It also has low fuel consumption due to its extreme lightweight engineering. The Centro Stile at Sant’ Agata Bolognese designed a car that is light years ahead of the competition.
The chassis, body and suspension are all made from carbon fibre. This allows the car to weigh just 999kg. This gives it rocket-powered performance, with a power-to-weight ratio of 562bhp per tonne. This is the equivalent of a Veyron, which is impressive considering that it is a go-kart.
The exterior of the car is finished with a new clear-coat finish that displays the carbon fiber construction proudly. Lamborghini has also used a special Nano Technology to add a red dazzle on the surface of the car, which glows when it is illuminated. This makes the car look almost like a living thing.
