Sesto Elemento 0

The latest edition of the Lamborghini range was introduced in 2011 as the most expensive car in the world. At a price of £1.77 million, £280,000 more expensive than the Bugatti Veyron the car is not even roadworthy due to its extreme lightweight body made of carbon fibre.

In fact is the lightest car that has ever come off the Lamborghini production line with a curb weight of just 2,202 lbs. Body parts including the wheels and body panels are made of carbon fibre.

Powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine, the car’s brake horsepower can generate about up to 600, which is a scary thought considering its tiny lightweight frame. Compared to the Bugatti Veyron the car doesn’t reach the same high speeds as its rival but does beat it slightly by accelerating from 0-62mph in the timeframe of under 2.5 seconds. Other sources have claimed that the car matches the Bugatti Veyron by reaching 0-62mph in exactly 2.5 seconds. Either way it must be said that the acceleration record is an impressive feat, considering that the Bugatti Veyron is the fastest car in the world.

The Sesto Elemento’s tailpipe is made of out a material called Pyrosic, which differs from a conventional metal exhaust system. The exhaust can endure a much higher temperature compared to normal, giving the car better performance. Many would expect the vehicle to utilise excellent handling so the enormous power generated by the car is not at all compromised. This particular feature has not disappointed with the car possessing outstanding handling ability.

The Sesto Elemento’s stunning looks have got it praise from many different experts and car enthusiasts alike. The car has excited many, with Maurizlo Reggianiln, who is the companies engineering boss saying that the car “Represents a revolutionary way of building a car. This method is a true breakthrough, and we are extremely excited about what it means for our future.”

It all sounds exciting but many would wonder the point of purchasing it if you can’t drive it on Britain’s roads? It would seem that the car is just for car enthusiasts who use race tracks. However having the gloss of being the world’s most expensive car and with a reported 20 of them being made, the Sesto Elemento will certainly be a very exclusive car and certain to have takers.   Developments of the car are already in progress at an advanced stage. The pure expense of the car will mean it will have lot to live up to.
