Lamborghini Sesto Elemento £2.3m Hypercar – First time in London
The day the Shmee150 Facebook page reached a giant 20,000 fans (http://www.facebook.com/shmee150) just so happened to coincide with the arrival of a rather special car in London, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.
The Sesto Elemento (or 6th Element) was introduced at the 2010 Paris Motorshow as a track going weapon weighing in at just 999kg. Its thought that a total of 20 could be built with a price tag in the €2 million region.
The car arrived here where it will be on show in the Lamborghini London dealership in South Kensington, London however its behind closed doors to the public so it was fantastic to not only see the car again in person but at home.
A lot of questions have been asked as to why the car is not started, the explanation is that it had just arrived at London Heathrow from Saudi Arabia. For transit, vehicles must be emptied of fuel and therefore on arrival it would need to be connected to a race pump to re-fuel and there was no time/access to one available, hence the engine could not be run sadly for me filming this!
A lot of elements of the Sesto Elemento helped in the development of the new £3.1m Veneno.
Thanks for watching, Tim
