In Early 2013 we heard a surprising rumour of a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento being spotted in Delhi . Though initially we didn’t believe that the 2.2 million dollar car was in India , we were all surprised when we saw the pictures . But on closer inspection and some research we realized the spotted car was actually an inch perfect replica of the original Sesto Elemento, made by DC . Though the car is a replica, it is modeled on the Gallardo LP560-4 which was also quite a surprise as genuine Lamborghinis are seldom used to make a replicas (especially in India). The actual Sesto Elemento is a track only car and is based on the LP570-4 Superleggera , which is similar to the LP560 and hence the perfection of Mod . It took almost 3 months for DC to complete this car.
The original Sesto Elemento is a non street legal car made by Lamborghini to show of its prowess in the use of Carbon-Fiber. Only 20 of the cars were made and according to Lamborghini all them sold of instantly . The Sesto Elemento has an overall curb weight of 999Kg thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre and moves on a Gallardo V10 powertrain producing almost 570hp . The car can do 0-100 in less than 2.5 seconds . The power to weight ratio of this incredible car stands at a mere 1.75 kg per hp, which explains why it is street illegal .
