Lamborghini Sesto Elemento production rumored again

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 24, 2010

Lamborghini’s Sesto Elemento concept featured in the recent Paris motor show might be put into production as a track-only special, according to company boss Stephan Winkelmann in an interview with Autocar. Of course, this is not something new to 4WheelsNews readers as we already repoted it here.

Furthermore, Winkelmann said that Lamborghini will probably build several examples of Sesto Elemento. The vehicle uses Superleggera running gear but is made from forged carbon, a new material that helps to keep its weight down to 999kg.

Winkelmann said that testing of the Sesto Elemento is underway and that if it turns out well, the vehicle could be in for a limited production run. However, he said that it won’t be homologated and it would be for track use only since there are complications with issues like airbags.

He explained that the company doesn’t want to “produce and show cars just for a museum.” The price of the Sesto Elemento is expected to exceed the one million euro (£850k) Reventon. Winkelmann also said that the new car would have 20 units made (at the maximum), similar to the Reventon’s run.

“The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento shows how the future of the super sports car can look – extreme lightweight engineering, combined with extreme performance results in extreme driving fun.

We put all of our technological competence into one stunning form to create the Sesto Elemento,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
