New Lamborghini concept is the electric supercar we all want

Though the concept of supercapacitors may still be vague, power will be sent to all four-wheels with a four-motor setup at each wheel instead of the motors being mountend on the body.

Lamborghini has taken the wraps off its latest concept auto - the Terzo Millennio.

In terms of the powertrain, Lamborghini is developing an all-wheel drive system placing the electric motors in the wheels, in order to maximize torque and free up space and possibilities for the designers to create a highly aerodynamic silhouette that slices through the air better than any previous auto.

The Terzo Millennio, as we suspected, incorporates the knowledge MIT has acquired on solid-state battery technology, as well as cutting-edge composite materials - though it does so in an extremely unique way.

Lamborghini builds some of the most powerful automobiles on the planet, and like several other automakers, the Italian company has plans of releasing an electric vehicle (EV), too.

There's a new keyword: "recruit" which will see cards with the keyword pulling minions from your deck and dropping them into play. They also showed off a legendary weapon called Dragon Soul, which summons a dragon after casting three spells in a tour.

It was 12 months ago when Lamborghini and MIT started their mission to "rewrite the rules on super sports cars" for the future.

At Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) EmTech conference last week, Italian luxury auto manufacturer Lamborghini unveiled a new concept electric supercar - and they weren't kidding when they called it "the future of sports cars". The head of Lamborghini Stefano Domenicali during a conversation with journalists said that the electric vehicle Lamborghini Terzo Millenio Concept shows the direction of technological development of the brand.

Another innovative feature of the Terzo Millenio is the integration of energy storage technology into its carbon fiber body and structures. It will be electric, have a body that houses and distributes energy, and meet Lamborghini's legacy performance and design standards, the company's Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Maurizio Reggiani explained at an MIT press roundtable. Lamborghini's latest innovation is "Piloted Driving" - allowing the driver to be taken around a track by a "virtual expert" before taking the wheel to follow a virtual ghost auto.

In essence, this virtual driver's aid will allow you to complete a lap of a race track before you even take command of the auto. Should fractures be detected, "micro-channels filled with healing chemistries" will proactively fix the structure. This would allow further weight reduction with increased use of carbon fiber or the application of CFK to high-fatigue parts.

In other word's, the car's own body is the battery, which in theory sounds somewhat unsafe.
