So let’s be realistic for a second and be aware of the fact that we will never own one of these cars:
Why will we never own one? Well, because there are only 20 of them in existence. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, which was recently revealed at the 2010 Paris Motor Show has been put into production with a retail price tag of $2.2 million.
Think you’ve got the cash to bring one of these exotic cars home? If you do, you certainly won’t get to drive it home! The production models of these cars won’t be much different than the concept car, which means they won’t be street legal.
Manufactured without air bags or many other safety items required to make it street legal, this wallet buster is strictly intended for racing. The exterior of the Sesto Elemento is built with a lightweight carbon fiber material so the car weighs in at only 2200 lbs., which less than many compact vehicles. With this exterior and the drive of a 570 horsepower V10 engine, this Lamborghini can get up to 60 miles per hour in only 2.6 seconds.
This may not be the car for your average driver to take home, but this car certainly changes the way manufacturers are thinking about design and weight when it comes to fuel efficiency and performance.
