Lamborghini Sesto Elemento: Start Ruling The Road
Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is a 2-door, 2-seater, high performance limited edition car produced by Lamborghini. The car made its debut in the year 2010 at Paris Motor Show. Lamborghini has used the carbon fiber extensively in the vehicle, and Sesto Elemento is powered by a 5.2 L V10 engine borrowed from Gallardo, mated to a 6-speed auto transmission that comes with AWD system and paddle shift.
The 5.2L power plant can deliver total output power of 570 hp and develop torsion of about 400 lbf·ft. Components like chassis, driveshaft, body, and suspension are made of carbon fiber, which reduces the overall weight of the vehicle body. The overall body weight is comparable to the subcompact cars across the range. Sesto Elemento is the lightest car produced by the automaker.
The plentiful output power combined with the overall weight translates to an amazing power-weight ratio of 0.57 bhp per kg. The automaker claims a 0-100 km acceleration time of just 2.5 seconds, which is simply staggering.
Sources reveal that the company is planning to sell Sesto Elemento in small numbers for the year 2013, and just as usual, Lamborghini would be offering it in only limited numbers.
