The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is also in Paris.
The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio, the design concept of a possible future Lamborghini electric super sports car, is displayed at the 33rd edition of the Festival Automobile International in Paris from 31 January to 4 February.
Presented last November in the USA, the Terzo Millennio, realized by the Lamborghini Centro Stile, physically imagines design and technology theories of tomorrow, while sustaining the visual intrigue, breath-taking performance and, most importantly, the visceral emotion found in every dimension of a Lamborghini. It is made for future super sports car enthusiasts.
The technological goal of the project is to enable Lamborghini to address the future of the super sports car in five different dimensions: energy storage systems, innovative materials, propulsion system, visionary design, and emotion.
The first two dimensions are conceived together with two laboratories at the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in Boston.
