The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is a concept car that was revealed by Lamborghini at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. A total of 20 examples were built but purely for track use similar to the Pagani Zonda R. Deliveries of the car began in early 2013.
The total weight of the Sesto Elemento is very light due to the car's chassis, body, suspension, and driveshaft components being constructed near-exclusively from carbon-fibre.
The name "Sesto Elemento" is Italian for sixth element and refers to the position of the chemical element Carbon in the periodic table, where it is positioned as the sixth element.
Need for Speed: World
The performance of the Sesto Elemento is up to par with the fastest Class A cars in the game, as it benefits from its low weight. It is capable of reaching a top speed of 214 mph (344 km/h), which can be attained quickly thanks to its fast acceleration. Its steering is reminiscent of the Lotus Elise 111R, which is predictable in every corner and is very precise.
Compared to the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640, the Sesto Elemento has more power and better handling, but lacks a powerful nitrous boost, although it can be improved with the addition of three star skill mods.
The Sesto Elemento is one of the best cars the players can purchase for multiplayer races, but can be beaten by cheaper Class A cars with similar performance. In police chases, it can manoeuvre around obstacles quickly too. However, the chassis of the Sesto Elemento is not strong enough to sustain damage well.
