Lamborghini is there to make extreme supercars. That's what it's always done and that's what it always will do. But even for the Raging Bull marque, some of its supercars have been more extreme than others. It broke new ground when it produced the Reventón, and then followed up with the Reventón Roadster, giving those with the scratch on hand a chance at owning a machine even more exclusive than the company's "standard" offerings.

Sant'Agata is preparing to tap back into that customer base with the Sesto Elemento, a Gallardo-sized concept car that is set to enter limited production as an exclusive track toy for those with the means. But will Lamborghini stop going down this road when all 20 examples of the Sesto Elemento are signed, sealed and delivered? Hardly.

According to the latest reports from the Old World, the Reventon and Sesto Elemento are destined to go down in history as the first in a long line of million-dollar exotics from the Bolognese automaker.

So what will the next billionaire's Lambo entail? Far too early to say, but according to reports citing CEO Stephan Winkelmann, don't expect it to follow the same extreme-lightweight approach as the Sesto Elemento, as improving on that formula would be too much even for Lamborghini. Given that a good three years separated the debut of the Reventón from the debut of the Sesto Elemento last year, it'll be 2013 at the earliest before we have any idea.

      I think its a cool concept (Sesto Elemento), but the proportions aren't quite right. Its just not as polished as the Aventador or the Reventon. Its too stubby and cartoon like, more like a matchbox car then a real supercar. Can't quite put my finger on it. But they might iron out the details a bit before production.

      Sorry, but the Huayra is way more extreme than anything coming out of Lambos camp. Active aero dynamics, hand crafted interior, etc. No I would rather it didn't have turbos and just retained the Zonda's naturally aspirated AMG. The next Lambo should implement an all electric, extremely powerful drivetrain. In supercar territory, cost is no object and electric motors offer more torque and more reliabilty ICE. Range is not an issue seeing as how most buyers of Aventadors and Murcielagos don't do road trips in them. Extreme looking battery packs could be shown in the place of intake covers, designed with Lambo flair. And did I mention the torque?! Oh yeah, I did. Instant torque!

        +1 I think this is a wonderful idea. I think if money is no object then Lamborghini should showcase the latest and most extreme in electric vehicle technology. I would love to stare at a Lamborghini design influenced by electric nature of its drive train. The idea of Italian design in combination with CNC milled metal battery pack in place of an engine

          I know right? But apparently people are stuck on ICE, knowing good and well the power of the electric motor and the thrill it can bring to the supercar arena, sans the the ICE hybrid garbage. That's why humans progress so slowly. Look at the 102ex. Not production but cool nonetheless. Lambo should at least have a go at it.

      I love the philosophy behind the Sesto and the look reminds me of how Cadillac's looked at the beginning of their knife-edge-y look only sleeker and sexier. But an all-electric Lambo would be awesome! Gas is going to be real expensive soon and gone not too long after that, let the uber-wealthy subsidize some of the bridge technology that will get us all kick-ass electrics. Save the rare gasoline for only the diehard 'petrol heads'!

        and a limited run Super car isn't applicable to "die-hard petrol heads"? im pretty sure this is a car only petrol heads would be interested. Also gas isn't going anywhere for a few decades, and by the time we are running low on gas the newer technology like hydrogen, electric, turbine etc... will all have been developed well past the point where it is commercially available. So thats why this whole gas scare IMO isn't a big deal. let technology take its course and we will be fine and centuries forward will laugh at our generations :P

          So diehards in 4 decades don't get any petrol? It is NOT renewable. Why do we get to squeeze out every last drop of oil from even the tar sands such that no one else ever gets any? There are other useful products that come from oil and no one else will get them because we insisted on burning it all. I don't want to argue this endlessly, it isn't too interesting for most, but don't forget we aren't making any more oil. We should be happy to see as many other people/drivers to get off it as possible ASAP. Hook these idiots up to one another, electronically, on the freeway slogs and the rest of the lanes will be open for us! Or better yet, put them all on light mono-rail systems. And yes the new lambo is hard-core. There are nothing but ICE Lambos right now so I thought 1 new electric model might help the world see that electric isn't all about hyper-milers and ELF wanna-be's. An all electric super Lambo could really make inroads towards a heavily electric near future in the minds of the masses.

      They said they won't have manual transmissions anymore. I don't like lamborghini, and it will join ferrari, hyundai, kia, lexus, toyota, and china in the few words that I refuse to capitalize the first letter of.

      Reventon looks like a Diablo with Aventador front and Countach back.

      It's a little busy - but I like the proportions better than the new Aventador, which seems a bit squashed to me, more similar to the Gallardo, (which I still love,) with the faceted surface. The Huayra just doesn't do it for me - it just looks weird from pretty much all angles. The active aero is interesting, like on the new Mp4-12c, but I am not sure I would like it while driving, (wouldn't it keep changing how the car feels?) I think these one off models from Lambo are a great idea - something for the sheikhs and moguls to blow their cash on, keeps the company alive and well, and it pushes the engineering envelope.
