Lamborghini is the future of the super sport with a unique technology demonstrator to redefine. Account with an extremely lightweight construction with the technology of carbon, Lamborghini-Sesto-element concept has a weight of only 999 kg (4500 lb) – including food and pavement wheel v10. This makes the Lamborghini-Sesto element a unique demonstration of the technological know-how of Automobili Lamborghini. The innovative carbon fiber technologies used here for the first time in an automotive application. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Audi AG, Italian manufacturer of also of the German manufacturer profits undisputed experience when it comes, lightweight.
With his incredible power of 570 hp makes sensational relationship / weight of only 1.75 kg per HP 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph)-Beschleunigung in just 2.5 seconds, Lamborghini-Sesto element guarantees fun of unprecedented drive. At the same time fuel consumption due to the extreme lighting technology.
The name of this technology demonstrator come out of the periodic table, where the carbon as the sixth element is arranged. The experience of the leader shows the element Lamborghini Sesto so, glass fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) in the world of the Lamborghini in the technology of carbon to. Brand super sports the Sant’Agata Bolognese is the only producer of vehicles in the world, the them the entire process of CFRP in a variety of technologies, 3D simulation, validation, art direction have dominated and tests-all in a State of industrial art of processes provides the highest quality standards.
Lamborghini driving the development of technology in its investigation of the two centres of ACRC (advanced composite Research Center) and ACSL (advanced composite structures laboratory) through cooperation with organizations such as Boeing, with the resulting technology backed up and stored on a variety of patents.
“How can the future of the Super Sport in Lamborghini Sesto element extremely easy technology, combined with extreme fun of driving licences extreme performance shown.” We put all our technological competence in an impressive way to the Lamborghini Sesto element, “, says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.” “It’s our capabilities in carbon fiber technology, which have facilitated such thinking concept, and of course also benefit from the undisputed light experience of Audi AG”. Systematic lightweight super sport is crucial for the future: for more dynamic and low emissions. This technological advantage in our whole range of the application. “No future affects Lamborghini by the spirit of the Sesto element.”
Innovative basic technology package
With the concept of element of Sesto, Lamborghini have r & an innovative package meet d engineers. As radical and pure concept Sesto element the only synthesis of extremely low curb less than 1000 kilograms, huge weight 570 of hp, was rapid and sensitive response of the v10 engine high acceleration of naturally aspirated and outstanding traction and stability of the wheel it never a super sports car look like a thoroughbred. Lamborghini Sesto element provides an incredible pleasure driving, focused on the dynamics of absolutely beautiful.
Systematic use of carbon fiber
The basis is carbon fiber one extremely solid, hard, secure and easily structured: the Lamborghini Sesto element monocoque-cell concept. The front of the frame, tables of accidents and external CFRP panels is also. The main components of Sesto element suspension and wheels are made of carbon fiber. The wing is composed of Pyrosic, which is an advanced ceramic matrix composite and remain very high temperatures up to 900 ° Celsius. Even the propeller shaft consists of CFRP.
Incredible power to weight ratio
Lamborghini Sesto element concept shows the extraordinary Automobili Lamborghini experience in all aspects of the technology of carbon fibre. Carbon composites are a key technology for the automotive technology of the future, especially for high performance sports cars. These carbon glass fibre reinforced plastics combine low weight with excellent characteristics: are extremely hard and very accurate.
