Lamborghini Setso Elemento Details Surface

It's not often that Lamborghini unveils a new automotive model. The last new Lamborghini that we saw was the slick Sesto Elemento concept car back in 2010. Lamborghini fans were even more excited when word came in 2011 that the Elemento would go into production.

Some new details on the supercar have been unveiled. The most important detail was the only 20 will be produced. That probably means those 20 are already spoken for and will be exceptionally expensive. The car is also being produced for track use only.

That means these cars won't be certified to drive on public roads. I'd wager the majority of these cars will never be driven at all and will simply sit in some rich collectors garage. Other details include that the car will be made completely from carbon fiber and will use a 5.2 L V10 engine and AWD. The cars expected to sell for about $2.6 million.
