Lamborghini Terzo Millennio: A visionary electric hypercar

The Terzo Millennio from Lamborghini
LONDON: Lamborghini has revealed details of its electric hypercar concept, Terzo Millennio (Third Millennium).
The concept, developed in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, addresses key areas of electric technology including energy storage, innovative materials, propulsion systems and design.
The Terzo will use electric supercapacitors instead of traditional batteries to give it extra power. More advanced carbon-fiber structures are used in the Terzo Millennio and the body shell will gather energy for storage purposes.
The project also aims to develop a “self-healing” carbon-fiber structure, which contains materials that can repair cracks and other structural damage automatically.
Each wheel will be driven by an integrated electric motor.
Thanks to the four supercapacitors and the lack of an internal combustion engine, the designers have had more freedom when crafting the hypercar.
Lamborghini officials insist that this concept does not mean that Lamborghini is going fully electric or even hybrid, and said that it will continue to produce its cylinder engines.
