  • Looks like: Bruce Wayne’s daily driver  
  • Defining characteristics: Ultra-lightweight design, stealth bomber exterior looks 
  • Ridiculous features: The most extensive use of carbon-fiber construction we’ve seen from Lamborghini  
  • Chance of being mass-produced: As is, none; but the concept’s philosophy will likely trickle into future Lamborghinis 

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Concept car has similar shapes to the company’s Reventon, but its looks aren’t the concept’s show-stopping feature: It’s all about engineering.

The Sesto Elemento uses carbon-fiber construction extensively. The entire front frame, exterior panels, wheel rims, drive shaft and major components of the suspension are comprised of carbon fiber. Going along with that, the tailpipes and brake discs are made out of glass-ceramic material. All this gives the concept an extremely light 2,202-pound curb weight, and when combined with its 570-horsepower V-10 powertrain, it gives this sports car concept a zero-to-62 mph time of 2.5 seconds, which would make this as fast as or faster than a Bugatti Veyron and McLaren F1.

All that carbon fiber and ceramic doesn’t come cheap, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see this thing costing as much as a Bugatti or McLaren, but most likely this car will never be made in this form.

According to Lamborghini, “Every future Lamborghini will be touched by the spirit of the Sesto Elemento,” which doesn’t sound like a production green-light. Instead expect these even sharper Lamborghini lines to be the norm for all Lambos.
