It looks like the carbon fiber concept Lamborghini Sesto Elemento (Sixth Element) may be up for a short production run of 10 vehicles, if a German auction offering proves true. An exotic car dealership in Germany is listing the car for sale. Although the reported original listing on famous European car sales website mobile.de online marketplace is no longer there to be found, Auto Salon Singen still has it up on its website with an approximately €2 million ($2.63 million) list price.
Even more, the alleged seller claims that Lamborghini will build 10 examples of the Sesto Elemento, but they won’t be street legal. The retailer doesn’t say if the ten models are its slice of the pie or all of the models to be manufactured.
If you’re willing to take a $3 million gamble, however, you can be one of the first to find out.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento comes with an overall curb weight of just 2,202 lbs, a V10 power unit, and permanent all-wheel drive, as well as innovative carbon-fiber technologies. The concept is the only vehicle manufactured in the world to have mastered the complete CFRP process across a range of technologies, from 3D design through simulation, validation, production, and testing
The V10 engine delivers an amazing 570 hp and has a power-to-weight ratio of only 1.75 kilograms per hp. This allows the concept to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a sensational 2.5 seconds, while top speed will be higher than 186 mph.
The Sesto Elemento features a lightweight carbon-fiber structure with the entire front frame, exterior panels, and crash boxes also made of CFRP. The major suspension components and the rims are also made from carbon fiber and the tailpipes are made from Pyrosic, which is an advanced glass-ceramic matrix composite. Carbon fiber is also present in the interior on the floor and roof of the monocoque, on the doors, and on the cockpit and center console.
