2011 Frankfurt: Lamborghini Sesto Elemento approved for production, only 20 units to be made for track use

Following a huge positive feedback and requests from customers, Lamborghini has finally announced that it will built a production version of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.

For those of you that don’t remember, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is all about lightweight design and construction.

Weighing in at just 2,202 pounds, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is powered by a V10 engine making 570-hp. That allows it to have a power-to-weight ratio of only 1.75 kilograms per hp and a 0-62 mph time of just 2.5 seconds.

“These values are possible due to the use of a carbon fiber monocoque made of Forged Composite and extensive use of carbon fiber throughout the car, illustrating Lamborghini’s international leadership in composite materials technologies,” Lamborghini said in a statement.

“The excellent feedback and the numerous requests we’ve had from our customers have really convinced us to embark on the challenge of producing a vehicle with unique characteristics,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “We are proud that what a year ago was just a ‘technology demonstrator’ of future super sports cars, even though in working order, will become a small series reality. Only 20 units of the new Sesto Elemento super sports car will be produced, and will be destined only for track use. We’re planning to deliver the first cars at the beginning of 2013.”
