Lamborghini boss Stefan Winkelmann has confirmed the company’s carbon-fibre intensive Sesto Elemento concept car, as revealed at the Paris auto show, will likely be placed into limited production as a high priced, track only model.Speaking at the unveiling of the company’s Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante at a media presentation during the Los Angeles auto show, Winkelmann told TheAutoInsider: “We are evaluating the Sesto Elemento and if it all goes well then we’ll look at a limited production run. But it is unlikely to be homologated for road use due to the high cost of meeting various safety regulations.”
“If it is built we will urge customers to take it to the track. We don’t want to produce cars just for the museum,” he added.
Nothing is official, but the development and production of the Sesto Elemento is likely to based around similar processes used for the Lamborghini Reventon, of which 20 were produced in 2009. Lamborghini is thought to be considering a similar number of Sesto Elementos as the Reventon at a price that's unlikely to provide customers with much change from a cool $1 million.
