Lamborghini Sesto Elemento: Hypercar Track Day Dreams

Lightweight carbon fiber is a must on any so-called “hypercar,” but what about a car that was named after the element carbon itself? How does it stack up against the rarefied competition? You needn’t worry, because it will probably smoke any other car away, thanks to its awesome power-to-weight ratio.

The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento’s name simply means “sixth element” in Italian, and it’s a two-door, two-seater, lightweight limitededition hypercar. Naturally, it makes extensive use of carbon fiber. Its chassis, body, drive shaft, and suspension are made out of the durable, lightweight stuff. The whole car weighs an astonishingly light 999kg (2,200 lbs), which is comparable to a subcompact car like the Honda Fit.

The car has an all-wheel-drive system, which is mated to a 5.2L V10 engine generating 578 HP. The six-speed, semi-automatic transmission comes with paddle shifters, of course.

All of this engineering helps the Sesto Elemento go from 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds. Holy speed demons, Batman, better hold onto your shorts!
