2018 Lamborghini Terzo Millennio; The Electric Future Supercar
Lamborghini has embraced the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for the development of this Terzo Millennio! With this car the brand wants to show how it sees the supercar future for itself.
The name of this very extreme-looking concept car betrays all the objective that Lamborghini had in the head when the first lines of the Terzo Millennio were put on paper. With the MIT developed study model, Lamborghini shows how “a possible electric supercar” of the brand could be designed.
Although the Terzo Millennio so at first glance in nothing similar to what we know of Lamborghini, the extreme number of sharp lines and aggressive folding is indeed a hallmark of the brand. Also the way the light units are equipped with the distinctive Y-classification reminds of the lighting of, for example, the Aventador. The Terzo Millennio is fully electrically powered. In each wheel, an electric motor is placed, which makes the concept-car a four-wheel actuator.
MIT has interfered with the energy storage and the development of innovative materials. Among other things, the Aventador already uses supercapacitors to make the start-stop system function quickly and in the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio that is reflected to a greater extent, although it is not yet quite clear how the fork is in the stem. In any case, it means that Lamborghini, together with MIT, wants to steer the avenue of the regular battery pack and has a more efficient form in the development chambers, a new system that also has a longer lifespan. For some time now, MIT has been developing new lithium-oxygen batteries with lithium iodide as an addition. Batteries with this composition should be able to store up to three times as much energy as regular lithium-ion copies. In this concept, energy storage is dried up in another form. The carriage of the car is the battery.
Together with MIT, Lamborghini concentrates on the development of new carbon fiber components. It becomes completely unreal when we read about the application of the carbon carriage as a storage device for electricity. In this Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is that-on paper at least-namely the case. The volume of the Future music is still a tooth screwed up. The carriage of the car is ‘ self-healing ‘, which means that smart software detects cracks and other damage and repairs it yourself.
Also, autonomous techniques are not ignored. This extremist is able to chase the driver himself over a circuit. If you take the wheel yourself, ‘ see ‘ The optimal lap you drove through the car itself. Handy for replacing your lap time.
Fancy or viable future images? That is difficult to say at this stage. MIT is a very serious player and Lamborghini gives a clear signal with this remarkable study model. Together with MIT, the brand seems to want to grab both hands in the future
