Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Concept Is A Supercar For The Third Millennium

Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the futuristic Terzo Millennio concept.

Created in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Terzo Millennio concept is a supercar which has been designed for the third millennium. As a result, the car has an advanced electric powertrain, an ultra lightweight structure, and an extremely aerodynamic exterior.

Speaking of the powertrain, the concept has four electric motors which are powered by supercapacitors and energy storage devices which are built into the concept’s body panels. In order to achieve this, Lamborghini envisions the car would use carbon fiber nanotubes and ultra thin batteries that can be formed into various shapes and sandwiched in between two panels.

Lamborghini didn’t go into specifics but said the setup promises to provide fast recharging times which are aided by an advanced kinetic energy regeneration system.

Given the combination of carbon fiber and high-tech batteries, it seems certain that some of the panels would eventually form cracks and potentially break. To prevent this, Lamborghini and MIT are working towards developing carbon fiber that can effectively heal itself. As the company explained, the car would continually monitor itself and look for any signs of damage. If a crack is detected, “micro-channels filled with healing chemistries” would release to fix the faulty panel or component.

The technology is definitely futuristic and shouldn’t expect to see it on a Lamborghini anytime soon. However, Lamborghini’s research and development boss noted the technology is a work in progress and some components are closer to becoming a reality than others.

    WHOA. I didn’t expect it to look so cool. Whoever the designer/s are that worked on this, I applaud you. Very nice!

      Seriously? This looks light years ahead of the Valkyrie design wise.

  • Denzel

    that looks so mean, they really have out done themselves.

  • AxlRock

    The design is definitely striking, but the tech is what really stands out. Impressed by the innovation of MIT & Lamborghini engineers!

    What’s that shit? From the Countach to this… no!

  • RDS Alphard

    I thought it’s a Vision Gran Turismo machine, lol

    • LWOAP

      Wouldn’t be surprised if it got added to the game.

  • Dariush

    This is a nice evolution. It just need to be a tiny bit softer and tamed, with less fins and aero crap. A bit of the elegance back would be cool.

  • Mind Synthetic

    wow, coolest lambo in two decades. finally going back to what lmbo stand for, bonkers styling to pickup g-strings

  • klowik

    It looks great as a conceptual supercar on the track but not as a road car. I still like the existing road car look.

  • Honda NSX-R

    The first two words I said when I saw this car:
    Holy Shit.

  • IMPRESSIVE TECHNOLOGY. CAB FORWARD TO THE EXTREME.

  • Eagle By Singer

    Reminds me of the Aston Martin DP-100 concept. Didn’t expect it at all.

  • Bash

    I don’t even know what to say, its mean, its cool, its striking, its everything i like!!!

  • Balcis

    lamborghini’s are always somewhat distracting-appealing-attracting.

  • Ary Wisesa

    Wow! Excellent concept.. Good job Lambo and MIT team!

  • disqus_83g6mJmr6l

    GOD! it looks so cool

  • disqus_83g6mJmr6l

    where is the interior?

  • Michelin

    Very good concept, style is right evolution of Murcielago, Centenario and Terzo Elemento.
    Great job Lamborghini!!!

  • smartacus

    i like the look of the Turdzo but the 4 electric motors would be very heavy
