Lamborghini reveals bonkers Terzo Millennio concept

Lamborghini MIT

The head of Lamborghini Stefano Domenicali during a conversation with journalists said that the electric auto Lamborghini Terzo Millenio Concept shows the direction of technological development of the brand. There's even a "deep investigation" into how the Terzo Millennio could sound like a proper Lamborghini. Anastasios John Hart, Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology conceived and developed energy storage system and material science. MIT's Hart will investigate the new manufacturing routes for carbon fiber materials constituting the bodyshell of the Terzo Millennio, which will also act as an accumulator for energy storage and enable the entire body of the auto to be used as a storage system.

Described as a supercar for "the third millennium" - hence the name - the Terzo Millennio concept uses supercapacitors instead of conventional lithium-ion batteries, delivering power to the motors more quickly and handling more charge cycles before deteriorating.

The car's aero has been maximised to take advantage of the new electric architecture. And we'll admit, we're excited. According to Lamborghini, what's impossible today will be realizable tomorrow.

Saudi's Kingdom Holding says has support from government after chairman detained
In addition to locking down bank accounts, the Saudi government said it will seize any property linked to corruption charges. Prince Alwaleed's father was the kingdom's finance minister during the 1960s.

At the same time, Lamborghini is looking to find a way to store electrical energy in the carbon composite chassis of the auto through the use of nanotechnology like carbon nanotubes, aiming to improve upon the battery capacity while keeping the vehicle lightweight.

Trading batteries for supercapacitors and lightweight aluminum with self-healing, energy-storing carbon fiber, the Terzo Millennio is full of pie-in-the-sky technology promises, but its declaration is clear: some future Lamborghinis will run exclusively on electrons. This is Lamborghini's frankly bonkers view of what its hypercars will be like in the future. MIT's Dinca Research Lab and MIT's Mechanosynthesis Group are focused on the development of energy storage systems as well as the use of these forward-thinking materials. Bear with us here, but Lamborghini has started developing carbonfibre chassis components with the ability to accumulate energy for storage in the body itself. Here are some of the state of the art features that have been incorporated on the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio.

Lamborghini builds some of the most powerful automobiles on the planet, and like several other automakers, the Italian company has plans of releasing an electric vehicle (EV), too. A highly advanced monocoque based on Lamborghini's Forged Composite technology can be modelled, containing only the energy accumulation system and driver's and co-driver's seats, inspired by race cars.
