The Sixth Element.
Carbon. Plenty of it. Lamborghini is giving a ‘multipass’ sneak peak to the next generation of it’s supercar at the Paris Motor Show this week.
Details are emerging from all shadows of the interwebs. Rumors stipulate that the new concept is made entirely out of carbon fiber, weighing in at only 999kg. Combined with a 570 hp naturally aspirated direct-injection V10, an engine shared with the current Gallardo Superleggera, the power-to-weight ratio could accelerate this work of art to as high as 350km/h (217,5mph) and sprint from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.5 seconds.
The downgrading, to put it mildly, from a V12 to a V10 engine also suggests that not only does Lamborghini have weight savings on its mind, but also handling.
The hint of retro design flourishes the inspiration of raw grit that was attributed to the Countach. It was a menace so powerful and raw for its time that the mere shifting felt like workout worthy for a Spartan soldier. Mixed with a pinch of Reventón, the hottest thing from Italy since Elisabetta Gregoraci, the Sesto Elemento is sure to defile the dreams of the every unfinished man.
