Default Re: Lamborghini Sesto Elemento in India? UPDATE: It's a DC modded LP560!

Yea I echo some of the sentiments in this thread. Why ruin a wonderful car for another car that you desire, of which you only will have an imitation of?. I would definitely see it differently if the donor wasn't a Lamborghini.
I wonder how this individual will feel if Lamborghini go ahead & put the Sesto into production and it ends up looking different that the concept, which it most probably will...

Btw, where are the number plates on the Sesto? Also i don't spot any DC badges? They must be somewhere!
Yeah, that is the very same car which went under DC's knife unfortunately. That used to be EM's TDV once upon a time in Delhi :P

It's completely ILLEGAL and breaking the RTO rule and sections thus rendering it a criminal offence to be operated on public roads.

It's hideous but only DC could have done it what with all his cars falling into this aesthetic category, read comic book color by technicolor schemes. DC now has a twin whoever the sesto dude or company is

OT Would not take an Einstein to figure how the wealth came to be, given this specific nature of indulgence in our country where there is an ever growing acute skew in individual economics.

Again OT did my individual research on some of the names of the folks who own these type of cars and barring a few true passionate folks, bulk have several cases related to cheating, misappropriating funds, BIFR, bank recovery pending in several courts. India Shining SAR

Apart from the awkward, oversized fake triangular exhausts, this looks perfect to the hilt. Terrific workmanship, would have loved something more original though.

When I first heard about the Sesto Elemento in India I couldn't believe it because the ten units were booked already and none of them had a link with India unlike the Veneno owned by Kris Singh.But by replica standard it is a job well done by DC. Ofcourse the side profile, the length and the height makes it look weird. But rest of the design is spot on. The front looks amazing so does the rear. The exhaust in the original model also pops out in this way. The dash and the windscreen wipers do give us an idea oof the donor car being a Gallardo but considering Gallardo as a donor car is pretty offensive and expensive to me.

He has not modified the exhausts completely to pop out on the top which is what everyone is referring to.

Please refer to the pics below.

Thanks mate for correcting me. I had skipped it but later on i realized that those upward protruding pipes are fake and they have yet another set of exhaust pipes.

The first two pics look fine, Sesto Elemento alright,

Coming to the third, it seems heck lot short to be a Gallardo. Maybe its the angle, the brake callipers and the dash matches, but hey, it's DC.

Reliable sources still says it's a Gallardo itself, now for someone to come up with a video or engine bay shots!

That red thing (gear box or whatever) looks like the red bright butt of a baboon. Seriously sad. And yeah, it does look a bit too short and less wide like the real Gallardo.

This is how good she looked before going under DC's knife.

PS- The front lift and the low angle of the pic makes the car look really awkward

Heard this replica is actually on its way to Kerala.
Seems my state is doing a pretty good job of living up to its nickname "mod's own country".

There are lots of other replicas of the Sesto being made all around the world. Now only if Lambo actually decided to put it in production, then there would be no need for making replicas like these anymore. Would make it a worthy competitor to the Mclaren P1, Porsche 918 and the Ferrari Laferrari.
