Lamborghini introduced supercar the future of 2040

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.

The auto is still a concept, and the company would spend few more years on R&D, so, you that you can earn enough to get one.

In addition to its highly anticipated Urus SUV, Lamborghini is now developing an electric sports vehicle in a joint venture with two Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) laboratories.

While the out-there styling retains a number of recognizable Lamborghini cues, it's what drives this EV supercar that indicates how far forward the Italian manufacturer is looking, and the reason it chose to team up with MIT. Electricity is Lamborghini's future as much as it is everyone else's.

The Italian vehicle firm unveiled its design concept for the auto, billing it as "made for future super sports auto enthusiasts". More on this in a bit.

Feeding these electric motors is a new form of energy storage system, created to improve the efficiency of the power being drawn and replenished from the batteries. Mircea Dinca and the other by Prof.

At first glance, the results are fairly spectacular.

From a design perspective the designers at Lamborghini were given a lot of freedom to give the Terzo Millennio its extravagant silhouette. The front wings that house the wheels then appear to float off this main body, giving the front-end hints of Aston Martin Valkyrie in profile.

In fact, there's nothing really conventional about how power is developed in the Terzo Millennio.

Another innovative feature of the Terzo Millenio is the integration of energy storage technology into its carbon fiber body and structures. But unlike current battery technology, these elements would function more like a hybrid between that technology and supercapacitors, which can store and discharge energy much more quickly.

How all of this gets done is the really really interesting part of the concept - to put it simply, the body panels themselves become the battery, instead of some large, unwieldy, and heavy pack stuffed in the floor.

Its energy storage capabilities don't end there, though.

Lamborghini is the process of tinkering with some wild technology too. Much like self-healing paint on some Infiniti models, the resin, which forms the glue holding the carbonfibre together, will detect and fix cracks in the material substructure, eliminating the risk of a structural crack then forming from it. Should fractures be detected, "micro-channels filled with healing chemistries" will proactively fix the structure.
