Back in 2010, Lamborghini revealed the Sesto Elemento (“Sixth Element”) – a carbon fibre based supercar, powered by the Gallardo’s 562bhp V10, but weighing less than 1,000kg. The car reached ‘very’ limited production (less than 20 cars), which is hardly surprising given its $2.2 million price tag.
Another guaranteed star of this weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will be Lamborghini’s Sesto Elemento, seen here in a behind-the-scenes image taken at the Sesto Elemento photoshoot in Monterey prior to the weekend.
Lamborghini’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed this evening they will build just 20 units of the Sesto Elemento, the carbon-based super sports car that first appeared at the Paris Motor Show last year.
Well, here it is. Over the past few days more and more leaks have sprung from the Lamborghini embargo pump, so to avoid any further loss of thunder the release has been brought forward to… now.
