Ultra-Rare Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Hits The Streets

Ever since Lamborghini confirmed that the Sesto Elemento would reach the production line in 2011, the supercar has remained notoriously hard to see in the flesh.

Unlike the Lamborghini Veneno and Reventon which are occasionally seen on the streets, the 20 units of the Sesto Elemento are are limited to private track use.

However, this little “detail” didn’t dissuade one owner from taking the car out onto the streets in the Middle East. It wouldn’t be a hyperbole to claim that this $3 million marvel makes the Aventador look almost ordinary.

There’s not much to say about the engine, which is a 5.2-liter V10 engine from the Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera. But thanks to its carbon fiber construction it weighs just 999 kg, thus it is much faster, hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in a mere 2.5 seconds.

The cabin is outlandish, too, with custom carbon fiber composite throughout, a fully digital gauge cluster – why, it doesn’t even have real seats, making do with pieces of foam stuck to the carbon tub.
