      That Lamborghini earlier in the thread - why are they using the V10 from the Gallardo?

      Wouldn't it hit 260mph+ with the V12 from the MurciƩlago LP640?

      Lambo Sesto Elemento unleashed
      The sensational Lambo concept has hit the Paris motor show. And it's Awesome...

      Posted by: Vijay Pattni, 30 September 2010 Back to Car News
       

      Lamborghini has officially announced a Cessation of Horsepower Hostilities: the war is over!

      Today, in a big showroom surrounded by lots of pretty girls and paunchy gentlemen with notepads sits a concept Lamborghini called the Sesto Elemento. It is made entirely of carbon fibre. Carbon, if you were unaware, is the Sesto Elemento on the periodic table: the 'sixth element'.


      This concept signals Lambo's intention to withdraw from the Top Speed War which the world's supercar makers have been embroiled in for some time, and instead focus on something much more doable - power-to-weight.

      As such, this Sesto Elemento gets the Gallardo's 5.2-litre V10 wrung out to 562bhp, but sits on a carbon-fibre body weighing a paltry 999kgs, meaning rocket-powered performance in a go-kart shell. 0-62mph is sliced in just 2.5 seconds, which, as you've guessed, is the same as a friggin' Veyron. Top speed is 'over 186mph'.

      But, says Lambo, "what the figures cannot convey is the Sesto Elemento's razor-sharp handling, voracious turn-in and huge braking power". An understanding of basic physics will tell you this is right. So, so Right.


       

      The concept gets four-wheel-drive, Lambo's E-Gear auto box and, alongside the extensive carbon fibre, carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), including the insides, which are as spartan as the looks are outrageous.

      We've got the full lowdown and exclusive access to this pivotal moment for one of our favourite carmakers, so check out next month's mag for the full scoop.

      Lamborghini wants to refocus the idea of extreme performance with this. Are they heading in the right direction, or should Lambos be about big power, big speed and big drama?


      In something the size of a Gallardo they have gone for making it lightweight and gone for handling/performance over brutal horsepower.
      I reckon the chassis is too small for the V12 engine to give usable power

      It's a special edition "Monte" with different interior, wheels gear stick etc..

      The engine isn't standard it's been mapped, green injectors and some other bits on a stage 3 which is about 320bhp
