A reputable dealership specializing in exclusive supercars and luxury models and based in San Diego, California has listed the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento as “incoming inventory”. This is the clearest indication yet that the stunning supercar will in fact be built, and backs up previous reports that suggested the car was to be built in limited numbers as a new track-toy for wealthy individuals.
The dealership in question is Symbolic Motors, the same one, you may recall, as taking delivery of the very first Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in the country, a one-in-five ‘World Record Edition’ model.
As for the Sesto Elemento, it’s thought that only around 10 cars will be built and only three will make it to the U.S., all sold through Symbolic. If you have to know, pricing is set at a cool $3.44 million, making this significantly more expensive than Lamborghini’s last carbon fiber infused limited edition model, the Reventon.
No specs were revealed other than what we saw with the original Paris Auto Show concept; the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4’s 5.2-liter V-10, which rates in at 570 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque, and is matched to an E-gear six-speed automated manual transmission. Lamborghini predicts that with its lightweight carbon fiber body and stripped interior, the Sesto Elemento should be able to rocket from 0-60 mph in a Veyron-like 2.5 seconds.
One very interesting tidbit that we did get, however, is that the car is scheduled to arrive on July 15. Stay tuned for an update.
