Every so often Lamborghini releases a special edition model that breaks away from the norms of their current lineup. Back in 2010, they introduced the Sesto Elemento. Its name was inspired by the massive amount of carbon fiber used throughout the car. “Sesto” is Italian for sixth, and “elemento” is Italian for…element. And, if you look at carbon on the periodic table, you’ll see that it’s the sixth element.
Only a proposed 20 examples of the Sesto Elemento were made, which makes this video that much more special.
