The Sesto Elemento is a disappointing and not very impressive concept from Lamborghini. When you've got independent designs for new Lamborghini's like the Insecta concept - which are perfectly Lamborghini in style, and jaw droppingly good looking - then a mismatched and disjointed looking rebodied Gallardo just don't cut it.

Technologically and engineering-wise the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is nothing to be sniffed at. But in the looks department, the 2010 concept looks like something a 1st year transport design student knocked up in the early '00s.

Under the all carbon fiber bodywork of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento lies a 5.2 litre V10 which produces 570 horsepower. Coupled with an overall weight of just 999 kgs (2,202 lbs) this powerplant can propel the car to 62 mph (100km/h) in just 2.5 seconds - which is unbelievably quick, and way faster than any current Lamborghini.

The name of the Sesto Elemento translates into English as "Sixth Element", a reference to the fact the car uses a ridiculous amount of carbon fiber in its construction. The monocoque chassis of the Sesto Elemento is made from the stuff, as is the entire front frame, the exterior panels and crash structure. The Sesto Elemento's major suspension components and the rims are also made from carbon fiber. The tailpipes are made from Pyrosic, which is an advanced glass-ceramic matrix composite, able to reach and stand very high temperatures up to 900 degrees celsius. Even the propeller shaft is made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic.

Basically what it boils down to is the fact the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is one hell of a fast car which features the latest in supercar technology. But it's all wrapped in a very tacky-looking package.
