The Sixth Element superb Lamborghini concept car, presented in the last Paris Motor Show, will actually be produced. Yes: The manufacturer has confirmed that will carry between 7 and 10 of these supercars. The enthusiasm of those who were ready to put hands in their pockets to pay some 2.5 million but was quickly subdued. The sixth grade will be produced so seriously, but only as a track car. This futuristic prototype will then be admired only on the track. A real shame.
Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini CEO, said: “We are currently testing the sixth grade and if all goes well we could assemble a small amount. In any case it will not be approved due to complications with accessories such as air bags. We will keep only for track use. ”
The Lamborghini sixth element is a new course in the philosophy of the Italian brand: to improve performance is not massively increase the power of the engines, but we need to work intensively on weight reduction. The new supercar in fact has a total mass of 999 kg by using a special material called Forged Carbon.
The car is so lightweight and is powered by the same 5.2 V10 engine from 570 hp and 539 Nm of the Lamborghini Gallardo. The result is acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.5 seconds. As the 2.5 million needed to buy it. If you have a such a figure and a track on which to run, then this is definitely the car for you.
