When the Sesto Elemento Concept first debuted at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, there was plenty of discussion as to whether or not Lamborghini would send it to production. It’s been several months later and questions are still be raised to that effect, although production seems almost certain with the hits taken by some of the major automakers. How can Lamborghini not take advantage of a vehicle that has been built using a masterful complete CFRP process? In fact, how can they not build this vehicle and build a Spyder version as well?
It may seem a little far-fetched to some, but creating a concept that has drawn as much attention as the Sesto Elemento and then not building on it further with a Spyder version seems a bit ludicrous. This is especially true considering every other Lamborghini in the lineup has its drop top brethren added to the mix. If and when the Sesto Spyder is developed, it will feature the same technology as the coupe version and will be powered by a massive V10 power unit with an output of about 570 HP. While the 0 to 60 mph sprint won’t be made in the same 2.5 seconds thanks to the added weight of a convertible top, the Sesto Spyder will still be one of the most impressive roadster models offered.
As far as its debut and availability are concerned, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Spyder should be showing its face in some way shape or form in 2013. It will more than likely follow along the lines of its Coupe version with a limited run and a hefty price tag. The future Sesto Elemento (Coupe) will be limited to just 20 units, each carrying a price tag of 1.9 million euro, or about $2.8 million at the current exchange rates.
