The Day a $2.2 Million Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Came to My Hood

Though most cars on the lot at 1425 W. Baker St., Costa Mesa, sell in the $150,000-$500,000 range, the Lamborghini Newport Beach's recent grand opening featured a $2.2 million ride.
Lamborghini Newport Beach's blog features photographs of the Sesto Elemento being gently unloaded for the party. This was a rare sight indeed because the first time the car had been shown in America was in Pebble Beach the week before.

So, what's the big whoop? Built by Lamborghini's Advanced Composites Research Center, the sports car weighs just 2,202 lbs., has a 570hp V10 engine and accelerates from 0-62 mph in 2.5 seconds. That's faster than it takes to wait for the green on those damn freeway meters!
It's reported on the Lamborghini Newport Beach blog that the Sesto Elemento sits so low to the ground that it's difficult to pull it off a truck on an incline. Boards had to be strategically placed, over and over, to get the sports car into the Costa Mesa showroom.
Once it was fired up, onlookers got a treat.
"The sound was just incredible, something that you only could dream of hearing in person," reports the blog.
