Despite the mid-engine layout, this concept of Lamborghini Sesto Elemento seems compact, with a very short rear overhang.

Wedgy shapes are typical for Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, but this car is even more extreme than the super-angular Reventón, the ultra-low-volume Murciélago spinoff from a few years ago.

A plethora of spoilers, air vents, and triangular elements protrude from or perforate its body. There is a racing-type quick-refueling system.

The rear end is open, to give spectators a clear view of the transmission and the exhaust system, the latter of which, remarkably, exits through the engine cover above the taillights.

The front end and roof are marked by sharp, seemingly folded creases, and the rear part of the roof is graced by two intake ducts and two parallel lines of five holes arranged above the cylinder banks.

The hexagonal shape of these elements is a nod to an obsession of former Bertone designer Marcello Gandini, who penned the Miura and Countach.

Despite an overt familiarity to Lamborghini Sesto Elemento shape, the Sesto Elemento is nevertheless detached from the brand's current styling language.

The wild details turn it into something you’d expect only in a video game, or in some crazy tuner's showroom,

but not quite from Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, not after the brand has been working hard to overcome the styling clichés of its past.

One of the most striking features of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is that its entire body is constructed from visible, matte-finish carbon fiber

as expensive a material as it is light. In fact, the curb weight of the entire car is claimed to be a mere 2200 pounds.

In fact, we hear there was a considerable amount of discussion within Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and at parent Audi about showing such an extreme concept car.
