Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

After months of teaser shots and speculation, the Sesto Elemento has finally been unveiled. Recent Lamborghini design language is immediately recognisable, but it's taken to a logical extreme in this hardcore carbon-fibre road racer.
The 562bhp V10 as found in the Gallardo Superleggera powers a machine that weighs an absurdly minimalist 999kg, enabling frankly ridiculous performance. 0-60mph is despatched in just 2.5s - it's basically a four-wheeled Italian superbike. You can draw your own parallels with the KTM X-Bow...

'Sesto Elemento', incidentally, means 'sixth element', representing carbon's position on the periodic table. Nice touch. Time will tell whether this sleek sliver of carbon will inform the design of the Murcielago's forthcoming replacement.
