Lambo Sesto Elemento at TG
It came to TG, it saw, it conquered: more track pics of the hardcore Lamborghini
Posted: 13 Aug 2013
This is the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. A few episodes back on Top Gear telly, you'll remember we managed to steal a few precious moments with this sensational lightweight concept car; a car that weighs just 999kg, boasts a direct-injection 5.2-litre V10 engine producing 562bhp, will get from 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds and is made almost entirely of carbon fibre.
It looks scary, but as Richard, Jeremy and James told you in TopGear.com's exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Lambo, it's anything but. Once they decided that this Lamborghini was indeed very brilliant, we handed it over to our tame racing driver, a man unafraid of its riotous V10 and pointy, fighty angles.
And as you'll remember from its scorching power lap, the Sesto was ruddy fast. We sensed however, that you wanted more from this special edition, and thus, have provided a few extra snaps from its track time down at TG.
Enjoy. And be sure to check out next month's issue of Top Gear magazine, where Richard Hammond brings you more from the £2,000,000 hypercar.
