A Look at the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
Succeeding ‘A Surreal Look into Lamborghini’s Egoista,’ the Italian carmaker delivers yet another video highlighting one of its adventurously designed supercars. Officially debuted at 2010’s Paris Moto Show, the Sesto Elmento – Italian for “Sixth Element” – is a two-seater coupe with a 6-speed paddle shift semiautomatic transmission and a 5.2 liter V10 engine that matches Lambo’s highly-circulated Gallardo. Constructed mainly from carbon fiber to reduce its total weight down to a size comparable to that of a subcompact – thus becoming the lightest Lamborghini ever made – its name is appropriately in reference to the atomic number for carbon. The automaker announced late last year its plans to produce just 20 Sesto Elementos exclusively for track use and today we get our first look at the performance of this wonderful piece of engineering. Watch the rare footage below as the limited edition coupe travels around a Las Vegas track.
