Lamborghini Unveils Electric Supercar

New supercar received four electric motors located at each wheel, and in tandem with the battery for energy storage will be the responsibility of the capacitors located under the body, and "intelligent" recovery system.

The new Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is a "dream" concept auto meaning there is no chance of production whatsoever, but it does offer plenty of clues into possible future electrified Lamborghinis as the evolutionary name suggests - in English, it's the Lamborghini Third Millennium.

Lamborghini said the target is "to provide the Terzo Millennio with the ability to conduct its own health monitoring to detect cracks and damages in its substructure derived from accidents". It uses supercapacitors instead of conventional batteries, for example, which, while less dense, can charge, harvest, and discharge energy much quicker.

It's also looking to find ways for the chassis to monitor the degradation of the carbon composite and find a way for it to self-heal. To counteract the resulting danger, the Terzo Millennio will apparently have a self-repairing exterior structure thanks to "micro-channels filled with healing chemistries". So it will likely never make it onto public roads in its current form.

Asked if he might have to delay some votes, McConnell said: "I haven't had a chance to check with him (Paul) yet today about it". David Habich, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation , said the agency was aware of the incident concerning Paul.

In terms of energy, Lamborghini noted the importance of veering away from gasoline engines to electric systems. Lamborhini says it wants to address the future of the super sports vehicle in five different dimensions, including energy storage systems, innovative materials, propulsion systems, visionary design, and emotion.

The vehicle was designed in conjunction with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in America and was unveiled at its EmTech conference this week. 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.

An overarching Terzo Millenio priority, according to Lamborghini execs, is that any electric super cars achieve the same emotional connection and response that Lamborghini owners are accustomed to today. It will be electric, have a body that houses and distributes energy, and meet Lamborghini's legacy performance and design standards, the company's Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Maurizio Reggiani explained at an MIT press roundtable. Should fractures be detected, "micro-channels filled with healing chemistries" will proactively fix the structure. As Lamborghini points out, this tech allows for confidently using carbonfibre for "high-fatigue" parts, meaning weight savings in regions usually reserved for heavier, more durable materials.

Translated from Italian, terzo millenio means "third millenium".
