Included in the deal is the chance to make this the only street-legal Sesto Elemento, for a price of course.
It translates to the “Sixth Element” in English, and only 20 examples were ever built. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is the track-only, carbon-fiber rich, V10-powered extreme machine that debuted back in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show. And now just one of those 20 is for sale, listed on James Edition through Dubai-based Knight International. This one is, like all of them, a 2011 model. Not at all surprisingly it’s in factory condition and has zero (yes, “0”) miles on its clock.
Its naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 is good for 570 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, with power transferred to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. Carbon fiber is the material of choice for the body, chassis, drive shaft and many suspension components. Total weight is only 2,202 pounds. Acceleration, as you’d expect, is nuts. Zero to 60 mph happens in a mere 2.5 seconds and top speed is over 210 mph. These pictures also reveal its bare, race car-influenced interior, sans air conditioning and stereo system. Even the seats are made of a foam-like material and are bolted directly onto the chassis.
This particular Sesto Elemento was originally bought for 3 million Euros, but the asking price is now 2,400,000 Euros, or around $2.615 million. What’s equally interesting and tempting is that Knight International is offering to do a street legal conversion, in collaboration with a “high profile engineering firm,” that would effectively produce the only street legal Lamborghini Sesto Elemento in the entire world. Only serious buyers will be given the time of day, of course. Photos courtesy of Knight International/James Edition.
