Lamborghini Sesto Elemento – Click above for high-res image gallery

It sounds like we can forget all about cruising South Beach in the upcoming Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. According to Autocar, The Raging Bull is planning to build the carbon-fiber terror as a limited production model for track duty only. Thanks to its unique construction, the Sesto Elemento should hit the scales at less than 2,200 pounds, all while boasting the same drivetrain as the wicked Superleggera. This promises to be one very fast machine, but chances are it will carry a price tag to match. Autocar is reporting that the newest addition to the Lamborghini stable will likely go for Reventón money. With an MSRP of over $1.6 million, you certainly won't be seeing these parked in every paddock.

That's all the more true given that Autocar suspects that Lamborghini will build less than 20 examples of the Sesto Elemento. Who knew that rare birds were built from forged carbon fiber?

      Crash testing crashes plans again.

      Must be nice to be able to afford $1million+ track-only cars like this. And to top it all off, you KNOW a girl like the one in the photo comes with the car right?

        I'm sure she's just a one-off.

      Of course it is for track only. There is no way they could build a 600 HP 2200Lbs car that meets any safety or emissions regulations.

      The problem is that if you are in the market for track cars you could find a lot of used race cars that would blow this out of the water for a lot less than a million.

      Oops. Sorry about the double post. Computer malfunction.

      Interesting considering Lamborghini's long history of not racing. Even if they've veered from this a bit recently, Lambos are still for the street, not so much for the track.

      Since it's track only, guess I'll just get a McLaren instead...

      2200lbs? Incredible! Lamborghini has really outdone themselves. I love how it shamelessly displays its mechanical nature, rather than hiding it behind luxury. Forget the Bugatti Veyron. To me, this is a beautiful car.

      I'm actually glad it's for track use only. That way, only people who are serious about driving will buy one. To cruise down South Beach in this car would be to waste it, and to insult those who so carefully and expertly built it.

      Well, for starters, it doesn't have anything in terms of sound deadening..or an interior at all for that matter..so it makes sense it's for track only.

      I still want it even if I cant drive it on the street.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I'll bet it does *not* come in with a curb weight under 2,200 pounds. Any takers?
        • 4 Years Ago
        It has a good chance. Being a track car means no crash stds to hit, no insulation, and no electronic doo-dads. Just a basic car.

      Which would you guys rather take the car or the girl? Both look damn sexy!

        Unfortunately, at this price, exclusivity, and track-only limitations, it's highly likely that these cars will not see any road time at a track or otherwise. They'll be trophies in someone's trophy room. While it would be a shame to have this car be someone's accessory on a South Beach cruise, at least it would be driven.
