Rare Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Let Loose On the Track

The Sesto Elemento represents what Lamborghini does best – cars which look outrageous and also sound phenomenal too. Sure, over the years, they’ve refined their style considerably and some of their models aren’t as daring as they could have been, especially since going under the tutelage of Audi, but when it comes to concepts, they always get people talking.

In fact, the flat black Sesto Elemento got so many people talking that it is now no longer a concept, but also an ultra-exclusive toy for 20 very lucky owners.

The $2.2/€1.67 million supercar, was test-driven on track, at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, in Nevada. This video allows us to see this all-carbon fiber supercar stretch its legs, and let the 562 hp V10 engine do its thing.

It sounds predictably good, and really seems to run through the gears well – given its lightweight construction we would count on it to maintain the pace one would expect of a 2.5-second to 60mph (96km/h) car at higher speeds too. In addition, the video partially reveals the interior that looks extremely tidy, even if the car is a prototype.

This car reminds me how different from jet fighters Saabs were. If there would be one manufacturer that would be able to justify advertising its car next to some sort of streamlined jet-propelled aircraft it would have to be Lambo, with the Sesto Elemento. However, unlike Saab’s approach, the Italians would have to borrow an F-117 Nighthawk ground-attack plane, have it alongside, and take it from there…
