This could be the only road-legal version in the world.
With just 20 units in existence, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is a quite a rare sight, and now an example that allegedly still has the delivery mileage is for sale in Dubai. The asking price of £2 million seems somewhat reasonable when you consider the rare models original roughly £1.7 million sale price.
According to the showroom selling this special supercar, neither of the two owners so far have put any distance on this Sesto Elemento. The 123 miles on the odometer is reportedly still the coupe’s original mileage. If accurate then it’s a tragedy that no one has fully experienced this Lambo’s impressive performance.
More surprising, the seller claims to have a contact with an engineering company that could convert this generally track-only vehicle into being road legal. If the buyer completes this process, he or she would have the only street-registered Sesto Elemento in the world. The listing doesn’t offer any details about what this process would cost, but for reference Lanzante Motorsport charges £240,000 for performing a similar transformation on the McLaren P1 GTR.
Lamborghini launched the Sesto Elemento first as a concept in 2010, and rumours right from the beginning suggested the launch of a production version. The model available to customers featured a 5.2-litre V10 with 562 horsepower. Extensive use of carbon fibre gave the coupe a weight of just 999 kilograms. The high output and low mass let the coupe reach 62 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds.
The last time we saw a Sesto Elemento for sale with alleged delivery mileage of just 12 miles – far less than the newly listed example – was in 2015, and the seller was asking £2.5 million for it.
