Lamborghini has unveiled its new 570hp supercar concept at the Paris Motor Show. Powered by a V10, it touches 62mph in just 2.7 seconds. The supercar concept has a special coating and a special assembly procedure. As you can see from the images, the car is all carbon fiber. Sesto Elemento serves as a demonstrator of what Lamborghini can do with a load of carbon fiber and will never see the light of production. There’s carbon fiber not just for the panels, but for the seats and suspension as well. More images after the jump.
The Paris Motor Show is going full swing, and there are a lot of noticeable cars on show. Jaguar C-X75 supercar concept boasts a 205mph top speed, and it will run from zero to 186mph in just 15.7 seconds, touching the 62mph mark in just 3.4 seconds. Power for that kind of performance comes from four 195hp electric motors. Electric batteries on the car can keep it running for 68miles; beyond that, the supercar can make use of two small turbine engines to extend its range. These engines can burn compressed natural gas, diesel, biofuel and LPG.
At the Paris Motor Show, Ferrari will show the SA Aperta, a super exclusive car that will have a production run of 80 units, all of which have already been sold. The supercar also marks the relationship between Ferrari and Pininfarina, who has designed a number of cars for Ferrari and is turning 80. In fact, the SA in the car’s name stands for Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina. The car is based on Ferrari 599 but has a few touches to account for the open top. While Ferrari hasn’t really been up with the details yet, you can expect the V12 from 599 to produce 620 hp.
Reports say Bugatti, the creator of the fast, powerful and expensive Veyron is working on a supercar that will go easier on the environment. The brand new supercar will likely have an all-electric, 800hp powertrain inspired by the Audi R8 eTron concept. Since Volkswagen AG is one huge family, the Bugatti prototype has chassis belonging to the Bentley Continental GT. Speculations say that the concept/ prototype actually exists, but is unlikely to be made public. Bugatti’s engineers are working on the prototype to checkout the performance that can be juiced out from an electric car.
Lego enthusiast Sheepo has created the well known supercar in Lego, and not just that, the Bugatti Veyron even gets a working sequential seven speed transmission. The fully remote-controlled car also has a fully independent suspension and a retracting spoiler. Video after the jump.
