Lamborghini has revealed a new design concept, in collaboration with two laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), to push forward the future of electric super sports cars.

The concept focuses on a different dimension of technology and design including energy storage system, innovative materials and propulsion systems. In a time when the high-end automobile industry is moving away from traditional energy storage systems and conventional batteries, Lamborghini is investigating the potential of supercapacitors. 

Five years ago, Lamborghini applied low voltage supercapacitors in the popular V12 Aventador. The potential for this storage system needs to be able to deliver high peak power and regenerate kinetic energy with a limited influence on ageing and cycling during the vehicle's life. At the same time, the system must be able to symmetrically release and harvest electric power. The system requires the utilization of new materials and produce carbon fibre structure and parts – taking lightweight materials to the next level.  

The Terzo Millennio aims to combine technology and self-healing, that's the cars ability to conduct its own health monitoring to detect cracks and damage. This is conducted through microchannels filled with healing chemistries. The energy system relates directly to the performance, it allows the Terzo Millennio to embody the Lamborghini spirit while taking steps towards the direction of creating 'Lamborghini Electric'; focus on high torque, reversibility and the possibility of moving energy by wire. The overall design utilizes the entirely new architecture to perfect airflow. 

Have a look at the image gallery above and be amazed at another level of automotive engineering, and don't forget to leave your comments below.
