LaFerrari races a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento in Qatar

Article by Andrew Christian, on July 10, 2014

Ok, we knew that the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Concept will enter production and it will cost around $3.44 million. Still, nobody saw such a vehicle on the streets, until today, when TheCarHotel Photography posted on their Facebook page the first photo with such a car spotted in Qatar. What’s more interesting is that the same source posted a video where a LaFerrari races a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.

This is epic! For those who don’t know, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that develops 570 hp, which is not quite impressive comparing it with the V12 engine that powers the LaFerrari.

What is impressive is that the Sesto Elemento weighs only 999 kilograms (2,202 lbs). Featuring a permanent all-wheel drive system, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 320 km/h or 200 mph.

LaFerrari uses a 6.3-liter V12 engine that generates 800 hp and 700 Nm of torque, but also an electric motor that delivers 163 hp (120 kW). The total output developed by the hybrid system found on the LaFerrari is 963 hp.

As a result, the Italian hypercars can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds. Looking at the video, we can see that the Sesto Elemento is a little bit faster than the LaFerrari but still, the video doesn’t have the best quality.
