$3.3 Million Buys You a Super Rare Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
To the supercar aficionado with money to burn, you’d be hard pressed to find a better shape to fill your garage with than this–a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.
Lamborghini shocked the world when it rolled out the brooding machine at the 2010 Paris auto show as a concept car, and shocked it again when it announced it would build a few for customers. A scant 20 Sesto Elementos were ever produced, and according to the forum 6speedonline, one of those hallowed supercars is currently for sale…for a whopping €3 million, or about $3.3 million at today’s rates.
The international listing was posted by user “Hayabusa” and despite adding the pictures you see here, there aren’t too many details to speak of. Though the one detail that is listed certainly does pique interest. This Sesto Elemento is said to show only 12 miles on the odometer, which are noted to be from the vehicle’s delivery only. Effectively, it’s a brand new car. Hayabusa notes that they will be acting as an intermediary between both buyer and seller, and due to a set of non-circumvention non-disclosure agreements, it’s likely that seller’s identity will remain unknown. Rock star? Head of state? Whoever it may be, they we’re lucky enough to get on Lamborghini’s good list in order to score one of these 20 rarified supercar specimens.
The Sesto Elemento, or “Sixth Element,” draws its name from the atomic number of carbon–an element which gives this carbon-fiber intensive Lamborghini a significant weight savings. The supercar tips the scales at a mere 2,202 pounds, which is a frankly tiny sum when you consider the 5.2-liter V10 and all-wheel drive system it houses. These ten cylinders develop a raging 570 horsepower and can rocket the Lamborghini from zero to 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds. Blisteringly fast. Inside, the Sesto Elemento is a lesson in what you need… and what you don’t get. Conventional seats join the latter category. In this car, individual seat cushions are affixed to the car’s chassis in strategic places to support your backside. You also won’t find any dashboard to speak of. If it isn’t necessary, it simply isn’t there. Interested? Better rustle up that $3.3 million quick.
