One of the first big pieces of news to come out of the Frankfurt Motor Show has come from Lamborghini . Hold on to your seats, fellas, because the Italian automaker has officially - we reiterate that: OFFICIALLY - given the go-signal for the production of the Sesto Elemento supercar.
The word comes straight from the mouth of Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann - doesn’t get any more official than that - confirming what has been rumored for a few months now.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is a special supercar along the lines of the Reventon, carrying a massive 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 570 horsepower while boasting of a 0-60 mph time of just 2.5 seconds.
Winkelmann also announced that the production version of the Sesto Elemento will come with the same bodywork as that of the concept version. Modifications will still be added to the production version that will allow the supercar to satisfy road safety guidelines.
Anybody interested in making a run for the 20 units Lamborghini is going to make available will have to shell out around $3 million for the limited edition supercar.
