Then there's the way it looks. Granted, if you prefer your favourite Italian supercars to be shaped like, er, your favourite Italian women, then the Sesto Elemento is probably not for you. They're pushing the limits here too. There's not much in the way of sensual surfacing going on, and rather a lot of extreme edges and sharp creases. It's not particularly pretty, but it looks outrageous, which is part of Lamborghini's job description. Its body is finished in a new clear-coat paint with a shimmering matte effect. Its CFRP structure features a red weave that shows through, and gives the whole car a red glow. Unsurprisingly, it looks this way for a reason.
