Lamborghini's Sesto Elemento (sixth Element), the carbon fiber beauty that debuted at the Paris Motor Show two months ago, has reportedly been given the green light for production according to Auto Moto’s website, a French automotive program.

However, only a limited production of 7 to 10 units will be built. At the Paris Motor show, the concept show car was featured with a naturally-aspirated 5.2 liter V10 engine from the LP 570-4 Superleggera with 562 bhp. The car has a curb weight of just 999 kg due to its extensive use of carbon and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics, which includes a carbon-fiber monocoque structure. The Sesto Elemento comes with a permanent all-wheel drive transmission with a power-to-weight ratio of 1.75 kilograms per horsepower. The 0 to 100 km/ sprint time is clocked in at 2.5 seconds, while top speed is reported as 350 km/h prior to the Paris unveiling.

The Sesto Elemento comes with an estimated price tag of €2.5 million. Who knows, a unit of this exotic supercar might end up in the garage of a Singapore’s millionairs :D

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
