Lamborghini’s Terzo Millennio concept car, unveiled at the recent EmTech conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is the first product of a partnership between the automaker and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The “third millennium” supercar is just the beginning for the Lamborghini/MIT team – their future plans include the development of supercapacitors powerful enough to drive a vehicle, which could be incorporated into the carbon fiber panels that form the body of the car. The team is also working on in-wheel electric motors.
“A lot of the innovation that came and made its way into consumer cars started with things like Formula 1 and supercars,” says MIT Associate Professor Mircea Dinca. “I think that if Lamborghini – and we – deliver on this promise, it will be really cool for the future of all transportation.”
