Lamborghini is one marque in the supercar sector that defines what every insanity and creativity in its purist form. The brand is adored by toddlers who can barely speak and pensioners who reminisce about the legendary Muira alike. Over the last decade we have been treated to some of the brands greatest creations, it seems Audi’s input have just made the team stronger. Lamborghini make brilliant road cars, certainly some of the most desirable, but they also build a handful of ultra-rare, outrageous speed machines and they have both been photographed in their natural habitats, the track. Welcome back the Sesto Elemento and the big boy on the block, the Veneno!
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is one of Lamborghini’s most extreme and brutal creations to date. The stripped out 570hp concept car was unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and it was thought to be just that, a concept. Lamborghini, however, had other plans and now the Gallardo based track car has been scheduled for limited production, twenty cars are being sold, each at cost of a cool $2.2 million. Of course, the entire limited run has already been sold.
When presented in Paris, the Sesto Elemento featured the V10 engine from the Gallardo Superleggera, tuned to an output of 570bhp. It features a sprint-time to 100km/h (62mph) of just 2.5 seconds thanks to a low weight of 999 kilograms (2,202lb). The Sesto Elemento uses an extremely lightweight carbon fibre construction which allows for a power-to-weight ratio of 1.75 kilograms per hp.
Next up is a very impressive car, one of the most spectacular beast ever to wear the golden Bull on its hood. Only three unique units of the Lamborghini Veneno will be built and sold with a 3 million Euros plus tax price tag. Despite the extreme price tag all three units have already been sold! With a maximum output of 750 hp from a 6.5 litre V12 engine, the Veneno accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and the top speed for this street-legal racing car stands at 355 km/h. The complete chassis is produced as a CFRP monocoque, as is the outer skin. The name of the Veneno originates from a legendary fighting bull. Veneno is the name of one of the strongest fighting bulls ever.
