One of the most innovative and groundbreaking creations to come out of the Lamborghini think tank — the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento — has been delivered to its lucky owner in Hong Kong via Kingsway Cars Ltd.
When it comes to the Sesto Elemento – which gets its name from the periodic table – less is more. The feather-light super sports car utilizes advanced carbon-fiber technology, bringing the weight down to an impossible 999 kilograms (2,202 lbs). It’s the first time a car has used carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) technology, a testament to the expertise of Automobili Lamborghini.
The performance numbers deliver exactly what the car’s extreme look promises: it outputs 570 hp, its power-to-weight ratio is a sensational 3.9 pounds per hp, and the car accelerates from zero to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds. The top speed is well over 186 mph, and fuel consumption is improved thanks to the car’s lighter weight, not that fuel economy is what Lamborghini buyers are looking for.
Add permanent all-wheel drive and the naturally aspirated V10 engine to the carbon-fiber tech upgrades, and you’ve got one seriously fun – and flashy – sports car to drive.
Hong Kong drivers seem to be fans of rare and hyper expensive Lamborghinis. Just last month, two Lamborghini Veneno Roadsters were delivered on the Asian island.
