It’s hard to comprehend that it’s been over two years since the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was released at the 2010 Paris Motor Show after numerous teaser shots were released and after much speculation that the car would in fact be the much-anticipated Aventador.
However, the Sesto Elemento still managed to stun crowds as did Lamborghini’s later announcement that the car would be produced in limited quantities just like the Reventon and Reventon Roadster. Well after two years of further development and research, Lamborghini has finally kicked off production for the 999kg supercar.
Lamborghini will produce the car in a new Pre-Series Center at the company’s Sant’Agata headquarters, in a department specifically created for limited run production cars which require extra attention than the Gallardo and Aventador.
Production of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will take place across five different workstations with 24 bright lights being utilised to check for any imperfections in the car’s unique matte carbon fiber finish.
Similarly, it’s been confirmed that the production variant of the car is almost identical to the concept, meaning the outlandish interior is also being maintained.
As we already know, the Sesto Elemento is the lightest production Lamborghini ever produced, tipping the scales at just 999kg and producing a power-to-weight ratio of 1.75 pounds per horsepower thanks to the 570hp engine borrowed from the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera.
Consequently, the car can rocket from 0-100km/h in just 2.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 320km/h. With just 20 units being produced, perhaps all the technology, performance capabilities and exclusivity of this car makes its 1.5 million euro price tag seem justified!
