Richard Hammond from Top Gear remarked on how Lamborghini has been in the business of making “the best bedroom-wall-poster subjects in the world. Always looking forward, never back.” And they’ve been pulling off this trick for the past five decades. Releasing some of the most unique, flamboyant machines the world has ever seen. Each car, more amazing than the last, doing extreme year after year after year.
We’ve already seen the Veneno, so no surprise when Lamborghini develops a single-seat cockpit, Apache helicopter inspired concept car called the Egoista next. It’s made from aluminum, carbon fiber, and aeronautical-spec antiradar materials and is powered by the Gallardo’s 5.2-liter V10 engine that has been tweaked to produce 600 bhp.
But now Lamborghini has released a new exciting supercar for us to fawn over, The Sesto Elemento. Made from an extremely lightweight blend of plastic and carbon fiber, it weighs less than 1,000 kg, about 2,202 lbs. With its overall 570 hp from it’s V10 out of the Gallardo, this supercar hits 0-62 mph in 2.5 seconds. One of the most insane track cars we’ve seen to date.
