Lamborghini unveils the self-healing supercar of the future

Lamborghini unveils the self-healing supercar of the future”

This is an electric Lamborghini. Today they revealed something new to pin up on your wall - the Terzo Millennio.

Lamborghini has peeled back the curtain on an audacious concept that offers a rough outline of the supercar manufacturer's pathway into the future.

Lamborghini, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, marks the first steps of a possible future Lamborghini electric super sports vehicle. The technological goal of the project is to enable Lamborghini to address the future of the super sports auto in five different dimensions: energy storage systems, innovative materials, propulsion system, visionary design, and emotion.

Lamborghini hopes the collaboration with MIT scientists in creating the all-electric Terzo Millennio will bear fruit in the form of "radical innovation" across five key areas.

"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".

What comes of the concepts within for the next generation Lamborghini road cars we'll have to wait and see. Lamborghini says it is even investigating self-healing properties, where the vehicle detects and fixes cracks to its sub-structure automatically by way of micro-channels filled with healing chemicals. The body work would also have a monitoring system that can detect cracks or any accidental damage and initiate a self-healing process, potentially saving owners tens of thousands of dollars for minor fix work.

It makes for an incredible feat of engineering if it works as planned... but can we have it with the V12, please?
