Lamborghini Sesto Elemento super sportscar worth $2.5 million – Sold Out (Photos)
Lamborghini Sesto Elemento or the Sixth Element, was first introduced by the Italian sportscar manufacturer back in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show. Planning of Sesto Elemento began even earlier, in 2006, when Lamborghini decided to have an even faster variant of their street legal Gallardo. The result was Sesto Elemento. Thanks to its distinctive looks, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento made its way to famous racing video games like Need for Speed and Asphalt.
Made strictly for the track, Sesto Elemento is powered by a Gallardo borrowed 5.2L V10 generating 570 bhp and 540 Nm torque. Thanks to extremely lightweight of 999 kgs (2,200 lbs) due to extensive use of carbon fiber, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento had a power to weight ratio of 0.57 bhp per 1 kg. This also helped the sportscar to do a 0-100 kmph (0-62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds. Lamborghini Sixth Element has a topspeed of 350 kmph (219 mph). Transmission is taken care by a pedal-shift 6 speed semi automatic gearbox. Other feature that helps the Gallardo powered supercar to attain such incredible speeds is the hexagonal shaped air vents on the engine cover, keeping the 5.2L heart cooler.
During the unveiling itself, Lamborghini sources had notified that Sesto Elemento will be a limited edition run spanning to just 20 units which will never be street legal. Though price was never revealed, speculations suggested the price of Lamborghini Sesto Elemento to be between $1.7 – $2.5 million (Rs 9.45 – Rs 13.89 crores or £1.08 or £1.59 million or €1.34 to €1.97 million).
That’s a lot, considering the fact that you will never be able to show with this beauty publicly. But being a limited edition fast car from Lamborghini, its worth every penny. It was revealed earlier this week Lamborghini has managed to sell all 20 units of Sixth Elemento to anonymous buyers across the globe.
