Lamborghini Hong Kong has delivered a rare Sesto Elemento to a wealthy customer. Originally unveiled as a concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the Sesto Elemento was an instant success and Lamborghini confirmed plans to offer 20 production models in 2011. Lamborghini Hong Kong declined to say much about this particular model but all Sesto Elementos have a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and carbon fiber reinforced plastic bodywork. The fight against fat continues elsewhere as engineers equipped the supercar with carbon fiber wheels, a carbon-ceramic braking system, and advanced glass-ceramic matrix composite tailpipes. This, along with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic propeller shaft, enable the car to have a curb weight of just 2,202 pounds.

Lamborghini Hong Kong has delivered a rare Sesto Elemento to a wealthy customer.

Originally unveiled as a concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the Sesto Elemento was an instant success and Lamborghini confirmed plans to offer 20 production models in 2011.

Lamborghini Hong Kong declined to say much about this particular model but all Sesto Elementos have a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and carbon fiber reinforced plastic bodywork.  The fight against fat continues elsewhere as engineers equipped the supercar with carbon fiber wheels, a carbon-ceramic braking system, and advanced glass-ceramic matrix composite tailpipes.  This, along with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic drive shaft, enable the car to have a curb weight of just 2,202 pounds.

Power is provided by a naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 562 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque.  That doesn't sound like much by today's standard but it gives the Sesto Elemento an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 3.9 lbs per hp.

The engine is connected to a six-speed e.gear transmission and a permanent all-wheel-drive system.  This setup enables the car to rocket from 0-62 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 186 mph.
