The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was debuted at the Paris Motor Show just two months ago, and now, it is given a green light to produce about 7 to 10 units only. The Sesto Elemento (Sixth Element) is built for speed with jet-fighter styling and lightweight materials.

The Sesto Elemento will feature a 5.2 liter V10 engine from the LP 570-4 Superleggera with 570 horsepower. The car has a light curb weight of about 2,200 pounds due to the use of carbon material and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics in a carbon-fiber monocoque structure and other parts of the car. This enables the Lamborghini Elemento to clock in from 0-62 miles in just 2.5 seconds with top speed at around 217 mph.

The use of carbon-fiber monocoque structure and light weight materials throughout the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is not cheap, which set a price tag of about €2.5 million ($3.4 million).
