It's not that far away
It’s easy to dismiss the Terzo Millennio as a fanciful concept that will never see the light of day; a vehicle laced with technology we struggle to even understand let alone have the vision to identify as the direction for next-generation performance. Yet, if you dig deeper into the project, it’s obvious that it’s very significant.
“This is a revolution,” said Reggiani. “It can be risky. You are right, but if you want to be a visionary, you must also take risks. When we created the first Aventador, people said to us, ‘Are you crazy? It’s not possible to have a sustainable project with a full monocoque in carbon fibre.’ We have proved it was not only possible, but it was a big success, and we just now produced chassis number 8,000.”
It takes someone to lead not to follow in this industry, to look beyond the current thinking and define where to go next. The Terzo redefines our understanding of every aspect of the hypercar, as we understand it. It challenges convention, breaks new boundaries and, if the team can deliver, it will redefine our understanding of performance in every parameter, while delivering a future for the apex predators of speed. And for that we should credit it and the automotive brains developing it.
