Lamborghini‘s Sesto Elemento hypercar is such a special vehicle, that Lamborghini had to make a unique factory just to produce them. The Italian exotic car maker has brought one along to Pebble Beach just to show how special it really is.

By extensively using carbon fiber, the Lamborghini achieves a tiny 2,202-lb curb weight. Combined that with a 562-hp V10 engine and the Sesto Elemento can propel the car from 0-60 mph in only 2.5 seconds.

Sesto Elemento means sixth element in Italian, indicating that the car is made up of so much carbon fiber. Only 20 of the $2.2-million Lambos will be made, making this quite the rare sight. Check out the full gallery below
