The Bugatti Veyron has led the market for sometime now as one of the most expensive and fastest supercars in the world, but now it has a rival. The German designed Lamborghini Sesto Elemento has come along with a price tag higher than the Veyron and its so fast that it is illegal to drive on the roads in the US.
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento first premiered as a concept car at the Paris auto show last year and now Lamborghini bosses have given it the go-ahead for production but with a price tag of $2.92 million, thats $280,090 more than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
Powering the Sesto Elemento is a 5.2-litre V10 engine that kicks out 600hp, but what gives this supercar it’s edge is the fact it has a revolutionary carbon fiber chassis that brings the weight down to less then one tonne making it 1,870lbs lighter than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
It can accelerate from 0-62mph in less than 2.5 seconds and can hit speeds well over 200 mph but due to this excessive power it will only be available as a track car.
This is truly one magnificent machine but the fact it wont be road legal turns me off! To spend almost $3 million on a supercar which you cant drive on the road, no thanks. I would rather buy a Veyron, its cheaper, faster and you can drive it on any road legally.
Which would you rather?
