It's functional, too. There are pronounced vertical ribs on the bonnet, which help stiffen it but also guide cooling air to the radiator and brakes through the triangular openings ahead of the windscreen. The headlights have been minimised too; they're bi-xenons with four LEDs in each pod. At the rear, a huge spoiler tops a series of aero treatments: there's a central air deflector and an unusually proportioned diffuser. Speculatively, the Sesto Elemento should have serious stability and fat downforce numbers. The exhaust exits through a pair of periscopes under the rear wing and hot air escapes upwards through 10 hexagonal holes in the engine cover, while two further air scoops funnel air into the V10. It's worth looking at this car from above.
