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."

    The DS 5 is hard to pigeonhole but it works as a package. Impressive French-style long-range cruiser, albeit at strong money for an unproven brand

    The 4C improves, and the Spider is a good conversion, but it remains dynamically troubled and absurdly expensive

    More traction and nothing separating Jag's monstrous V8 mouthpiece from your ears. It's the shoutiest, priciest F-Type on sale, but is it the best?

    The C63 may have lost its big V8, but its replacement makes it difficult to mourn
