Every time Lamborghini decides to create and release a concept, we take proper measurements and sit to avoid falling over in awe. Their latest concept, the Terzo Millenio comes in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is a full-on climax of technological features and design cues.
Let's start with the looks of it, but where can you possibly start. At first glance, an aggressive front end seems to be hugging the ground with its low clearance height and huge air intakes. The headlights are neatly tucked under a carbon fiber panel that resembles the stare of a hungry predator. In the back, the rear lights are comprised of LED strips moving in the vertical and horizontal plane and beautifully angling upwards.
For a company deeply rooted into the petrol engined market, Lamborghini has decided to switch up the electric future of their cars by introducing a new layout for the electric motors. Lamborghini claimed that batteries aren't intense enough for their car so they are developing a supercapacitor with electric motors in each of the wheels. That means that the car will be four-wheel drive and it will have much more space for design and aerodynamics. Electric motors usually mean that the car sounds like an electric razor but Lamborghini said that they are doing their best to evoke the sound of the Terzo Millenio; it might not be the typical N/A V10 sound but it is bound to be good.
Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects about this car is its carbon fiber structure. While that is not news by itself, the structure could possibly be self-healing. It is unclear how that will be achieved; Lamborghini explained that micro-channels connected to sensors will generate heat when damage is done. This will help seal up the torn fibers and prevent further damage to the vehicle. While remaining a far fetch from reality, it is amazing to see how a company like Lamborghini envisions the electric future of automobiles.
