Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed at the Frankfurt motor show that the Sesto Elemento concept car will make it into low-volume production of just 20 units.
Weighing just 999kg, the new supercar will hit 62mph in just 2.5sec thanks to its 562bhp V10 powerhouse. The acceleration figure matches that of the 1183bhp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
To keep to this self-imposed and ultra-ambitious weight limit, and as previously reported in Autocar, the Sesto Elemento will have to stay within the confines of the race track. Its extreme nature, stripped-out cabin and highly experimental forged carbonfibre construction mean that homologation issues preclude the possibility of a road-going version.
The only thing likely to be more breathtaking than the way the Sesto Elemento gets around a race track is the amount of money Lamborghini will ask its customers to part with in exchange for one.
