    Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    This may be an indication of the styling direction of the Aventador's successor in the same way that the Sesto Elemento gave a hint of the look of the Huracan. The low cabin and high front wheel arches would be too extreme for a road legal car as vision would be seriously hampered.

    Autocar Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    Lamborghini has revealed the Terzo Millennio concept at EmTech, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s in-house tech conference.

    The Terzo Millennio - meaning third millennium - is all-electric, with in-wheel motors providing power, and the ability to control how much torque each wheel has. Lamborghini has not specified how much torque the motors produce, however.

    Two main focuses are present - next-generation energy storage systems and future innovative materials. Lamborghini worked with two separate MIT labs on the two, financing the projects itself. The former is worked upon by the Dinca Research Lab, named after and led by chemistry professor Mircea Dinca, while the latter is dealt with by the Mechanosynthesis Group, with by mechanical engineering professor Anastasios John Hart leading the department.

    A kinetic energy recovery system is also used, to give extra power to the lightweight supercar, and a super capacitor is planned for the model, although the brand admits that battery technology is not currently where it needs to be. It aims to develop a super capacitor for a leap in power density.

    Structural components double up as the car’s battery pack to shed weight - another area where Lamborghini alleges the current technology isn’t up to scratch. The rest of the car is made of carbon fibre, although sensors allow the car to monitor the structural integrity of its own body, detecting damage and cracks in the bodywork. The car can then 'self heal', thanks to chamicals in the micro-channels of the carbon fibre bodywork. Lamborghini's work with MIT looks to develop new and alternative methods of producing carbon fibre.

    Without a traditional four-wheel drive drivetrain running the length of the car, Lamborghini was able to design the car’s body to suit aerodynamics. This is another area highlighted for further development, as is the sound of the car.

    “The adoption of an electric power train requires to define a sound able to substitute the one of today’s V12,” Lamborghini admits, although it does not go so far as to explain what kind of sound will be produced by the concept. The only detail about the interior is the car's virtual cockpit, which allows the driver to be virtually taken around famous circuits, and through augmented reality, follow a 'ghost car' akin to racing video games.

    Lamborghini chairman Stefano Domenicali said: "Collaborating with MIT for our R&D department is an exceptional opportunity to do what Lamborghini has always been very good at: rewriting the rules on super sports cars. Now we are presenting an exciting and progressive concept car. We are inspired by embracing what is impossible today to craft the realities of tomorrow: Lamborghini must always create the dreams of the next generation.”

    Re: Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    Yeah, it's awesome looking. I mean, it's sits flat on the floor haha, but it sure is awesome looking.

    I'm not sure the design language is compatible for road cars like the Sesto was. The Sesto still just looked like a normal car that could be built 1-to-1. This looks like it quite literally could not be used in most regards.

    Doesn’t look like a Lambo to me

    I'd say it has a lot to do with the fact that he always gives positive reviews to cars he puts on his channel. I cant remember a time I heard him make negative remarks about a car he was showcasing. I'm not a huge fan of his but sometimes he puts very thorough walkthroughs of cars that there's mostly no media coverage out yet, so I end up watching his channel just to get more info.

    Good point. Probably the reason why he is so well connected in the car industry.

    He is a nice chap, I have met him a few times. The JWW creature on the other hand is just smug, slimy, and vacuous. We are definitely not the target market for Shmee150 and I agree he is popular with the manufacturers because of the number of followers he has and the fact that he is always enthusing about the products rather than given a truly objective and informed review. I think its more the younger aspirational people he appeals to.

    Re: Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    I find Schmee objective in the sense that he's logical. It's logical to be enthusiastic and give praise to just about every high-end car. The only real downside to any high-end car is value for money and reliability. Think of the newest, worst high-end car. If it was free, would it not be an amazing car?

    So yeah, he gets access to stuff because he always gives praise and good reviews. He never says anything is bad. And really, that's probably the most honest thing anyone could do. Nitpicking the most minute, subjective things is actually more dishonest than not.

    People on the forums will tell you a $400K brand new Aventador S sucks for A, B, and C. They'll tell you why a 720S sucks. They'll tell you why a 488 sucks. We're all guilty of exaggerating. I don't think there has been an exotic car made in the last 20 years that actually sucked.

    Actually, I want to hear that cars suck because this is honesty, not what Shmee does. Smiley

    I cannot take anything useful from non-critical reviews, this is basically the same as reading the brochure. Smiley

    Then, with the criticism I take from honest car reviews, I take that specific car for a spin and make my own impressions.

    Shmee's reviews are visually interesting (as long as I don't have to look at his teeth... Smiley) but from a potential buyer's point of view...useless. I get it why manufacturers support him but they make a mistake. Those 12-20 years old followers won't buy their cars, people like me do. I prefer a different type of review, with all the positive but also some negative stuff. If a review sounds too good to be true, it usually isn't. No trust here, sorry.

    Re: Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    What sucks about your R8?


    Re: Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    noone1:

    What sucks about your R8?

    1. Chassis setup (too many compromises to maintain comfort, even in the sportiest setup)

    2. Tire choices (optional Cup 2 sucks, Trofeo R not certified for the R8 but for the Huracan)

    3. Virtual Cockpit (no individualization possible, GUI design similar to "bread and butter" Audi models)

    4. Shifting Paddles (plastic, they feel that way and are too short...would love the Huracan paddles more)

    5. Interior: No navigation display for passenger, which is sometimes frustrating for the passenger.

    6. Engine power: 650 hp would have been perfect.

    7. Gearbox: Torque limited (artificially) for whatever reason.

    8. Weight: over 50 kg heavier than Huracan (mostly HiFi system, dampening material and leather) but was that really necessary?

    9. Dealers are not "prepared" for the specific clientele of the R8. I have a good mechanic and my dealership also is a Lamborghini dealership, so I guess I'm lucky but usually, the R8 is sold in dealerships with little experience with such cars/customers.

    10. I could continue but I just got bored... Smiley Smiley

    Re: Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    LOL. Aside from the shifting paddles and maaaaaaaybe a passenger not having a center screen, nothing there is even remotely important or bad.

    Chassis is an issue, probably also the reason why the R8 lost a few reviews (vs. the Huracan or 991.2 Turbo S) and while always achieving "good" track times, it never set records.

    Of course, from a comfort point of view, it is an excellent setup but not if you want to track the car. Also, the car gets very nervous at the limit (track for example) if you don't keep it "under load", which can be challenging for some drivers.

    The Huracan has basically the same chassis setup (with a few differences) but it benefits from the excellent Trofeo R tires, which aren't available for the R8 and Pirelli doesn't provide a R8 certification for these tires for various reasons (one reason seems to be the heavier front axle of the R8 due to the water cooled front axle, which isn't available for the Huracan). Of course I could use them anyway but then I'd compromise my warranty (AWD, etc.).

    I always find a fly in the soup, no matter how much I like something. Smiley Smiley

    Re: Lamborghini Terzo Millenio

    RC is complaining about one of the best cars ever created. Think about that for a second and tell me how it makes sense. When that R8 debuted, it was probably better than almost every road car in existence.
