Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Lamborghini Sesto Elemento The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento ("Sixth Element" in Italian) is a two-door, two-seater, V10 high-performance lightweight limited edition car produced by Italian automaker Lamborghini, which debuted at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The Sesto Elemento's name is a reference to the atomic number of carbon, in recognition of the car's extensive use of carbon fiber. Design[edit] The Sesto Elemento is equipped with a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission with paddle shift and all wheel drive system, mated to a 5.2 litre V10 engine borrowed from the Gallardo, generating 578 PS (425 kW; 570 hp) and 540 N·m (400 lbf·ft) of torque. The chassis, body, drive shaft and suspension components are made of carbon fiber, reducing the overall weight to a mere 999 kilograms (2,200 lb), a weight comparable to subcompact cars such as a Honda Fit.[1] It is the lightest car Lamborghini has ever produced.[citation needed]
