Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelman surprised everyone when, on the eve of the Frankfurt Motor Show, announced that the Italian company would put the impressive Sesto Elemento concept into production.
The carbon fibre-bodied Sesto Elemento is powered by a 570HP V10 and, thanks to its low weight of 999 kg (2,202 pounds), accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.5 seconds.
Now, if you thought that this was a surprise, here comes another one: Winkelmann revealed that the very limited-production Sesto Elemento (20 units) is only the beginning.
“Once in a while we should do one-offs or special editions. In this case, we made the concept and then got enough interest to make a limited run”, said Winkelman. “The key is that every car we build meets the emotional standards of Lamborghini and is profitable.”
He admitted though that future models will most likely not be as outrageous as the Sesto Elemento. “We have stretched the limits of weight with this car. To build something lighter would be too expensive."
Considering the price for "normal" Lamborghinis, "too expensive" probably means a price tag out of this world...
