Oh the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento , how we love thee. At $2.5 million and not even legal for street use, it is a pipe dream for 99.9 percent of the world. And only about 1 percent of that 0.1 percent would actually buy one. So that makes it one of the sickest cars to date.
There have been very few videos of this ultra-rare, ultra-expensive supercar and even fewer that actually show this beast running and moving. We got to see only a few seconds of it running and revving when Jay Leno met up with the Lambo Brass, but that just wasn’t enough for us. Now a fine videographer, BrianZuk, has managed to get us the shot we all want – The all carbon-fiber, 999 kg (2,202 lb) Sesto Elemento running and moving.
In the video, you not only get to hear its 570-horsepower race-tuned Gallardo engine, which makes a phenomenal noise, but you may also notice the taillights doing a little strobe deal. No, Lambo isn’t planning on rolling out the Sesto rocking strobe lights in full rave-party fashion. Rather our investigative skills discovered that LED lights actually multiplex (flash) when they are run at 60 Hz, which helps save power. The average camera’s frame rate is too slow and actually picks up this flashing though you will never see it in person.
Disclaimer: We know precisely jack squat about LED lights. We got this information courtesy of some dude that claims he owns an LED shop.
What makes the video is at about the 54-second mark we also get to see the Sesto Elemento hit the streets, though the driver never gets it over about 20 mph. It’s funny to see the driver needing guided over a very, very low bump in the road – no larger than two No. 2 pencils laying on top of each other. That just shows how low this car really is.
What an impressive hunk of machinery. We can’t wait to see these things on GT Circuits around the world. We wonder how long it’ll be before someone puts up a hoon video featuring this multi-million-dollar beast.
