Lamborghini Terzo Millennio concept revealed

Lamborghini Terzo Millennio concept revealed”

Ever since Ferruccio told Enzo Ferrari where he could stick his temperamental cars, and chose to build his own, it's been going its own way.

Lamborghini has revealed the Terzo Millennio concept at EmTech; the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's in-house tech conference. To begin with, it is obviously nothing else but a Lamborghini. Through air channels present everywhere, the vehicle will be kept planted.

There's some advanced tech here, too, as you might imagine with MIT's involvement.

The prominent feature of the auto is its supercapacitor energy storage technology, as supercapacitors are very expensive and not quite energy dense. They are envisioning a supercar not from the next generation, but the generation after that, wrote CNET.

And blast away it will thanks to incredible supercapacitor electric technology that will deliver brutal acceleration. Not in the short term future per se, but electric Lamborghinis are on the cards, but don't expect to see any before 2025.

The company is also exploring carbon composite batteries utilizing nanotechnology, which the company claims would reduce weight and increase the discharge capacity of the batteries.

Though the concept of supercapacitors may still be vague, power will be sent to all four-wheels with a four-motor setup at each wheel instead of the motors being mountend on the body.

Consequently, while it may have four fairly recognisable electric motors - one housed in each wheel for the betterment of the car's aerodynamic design - they would not be driven by anything as mundane as conventional batteries. It's too early to tell; for now, this concept is AWD.

These store and release energy in a different way to that of batteries. This technology deserves more explanation than we have room for here, and we'll get a deep dive on it as soon as we can.

"The adoption of an electric power train requires to define a sound able to substitute the one of today's V12", Lamborghini admits, although it does not go so far as to explain what kind of sound will be produced by the concept. Frankly, the company doesn't even sound like they've figured out how to solve that particular puzzle, stating that "a$3 deep investigation is needed" to determine what it should sound like.

Stefano Domenicali, chairman and chief executive officer of Lamborghini, said: "Collaborating with MIT for our R&D department is an exceptional opportunity to do what Lamborghini has always been very good at: rewriting the rules on super sports cars".
