Lamborghini has unveiled a visionary hypercar concept, arguably unlike any other.
The Terzo Millennio uses innovative selfhealing materials for its body, supercapacitors that power electric motors integrated into each wheel, and the ability to store energy in its carbon fiber body.
No easy task, which is why Lamborghini is partnering up with two laboratories of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The partnership, realised in the Terzo Millennio, is taking automobile technology away from conventional batteries to harness the potential of supercapacitors, and investigating new manufacturing routes for the carbon fiber body shell, which will enable it to be used as an energy storage system.
The project also aims to combine the technology to continuously monitor the whole carbon fiber structure, with the concept of “self-healing”. 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.
So it acts smart, goes fast and looks bonkers… very Lamborghini!
