The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento has entered production at the company’s facility in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
The 999 kg supercar production has finally started and the model in question requires extra attention than the Gallardo and the Aventador. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is being assembled across five different workstations and 24 bright lights are being used to check of imperfections in its matte carbon fiber finish. The final production version of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will be almost identical to the concept and this means that its interior design will also be kept.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is powered by a large 5.2 liter V10 engine, the same one used on the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4, which is producing a total output of 570 horsepower and 540 Nm of torque (398 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a six-speed semi-automatic transmission with paddle shifters which is sending power to the all-wheel drive system. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is over in just 2.5 seconds and the supercar can reach a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
