Lamborghini is collaborating with laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on a possible future electric super sports car. The design concept of the Terzo Millennio is a physical representation of that collaboration. It “physically imagines design and technology theories of tomorrow, while sustaining visual intrigue, breath-taking performance and, most importantly, the visceral emotion found in every dimension of Lamborghini.”
Lamborghini is using the concept to explore the “five dimensions” of a super sports car of the future:
- Energy storage systems
- Innovative materials
- Propulsion systems
- Visionary design
The role of MIT in this project was to cover the first two dimensions, energy storage and innovative materials. The departments of chemistry and mechanical engineering at the prestigious school designed the underlying elements of the Terzo Millenio.
