Lamborghini Sesto Elemento won't be the last big-money limited edition car from the Italian firm

The £2 million limited edition Lamborghini Sesto Elemento won’t be the last big money limited edition Lamborghini to be built, according to company boss Stephan Winkelmann.

The car, which is limited to 20 track-only sales, weighs just 999kg, and will hit 62mph in only 2.5sec thanks to its 562bhp V10 powerhouse. The acceleration figure matches that of the 1183bhp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

"Once in a while we should do one-offs or special editions," said Winkelmann. "In this case we made the concept and then got enough interest in it to make a limited run. If the car meets the image of Lamborghini and there is demand, we will build them."

Winkelmann added: "The key is that every car we build meets the emotional standards of our company, and that it is profitable. We build the cars of dreams for car lovers, and that must stay core to the brand."

However, future one-offs are unlikely to be as extreme as the Sesto Elemento. "We have stretched the limits of weight with this car," said Winkelmann. "To build something lighter with a car such as this would be too expensive."
