Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Project Unveiled

Lamborghini MIT

Furthermore instead of batteries, the concept will use "supercapacitors", which are capable of delivering peak power at any time and recover kinetic engery more efficiently. While the self-healing, energy-harvesting carbon-fibre body (yes, really) was styled by Lamborghini's in-house design team, the vehicle teems with technology honed together with MIT.

The new electric auto made its debut in Lamborghini's Italian hometown of Sant'Agata Bolognese whilst simultaneously being unveiled in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to highlight the development partnership between Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It has always been the aim of the company to "create the dreams of the next generation".

Having formed an unlikely partnership with MIT, Lamborghini recently unveiled the Terzo Millenio, a vehicle the pair envision as a supercar for those with enough money to afford one in two generations from now. Lamborghini is looking well into the future, claiming that conventional batteries aren't energy-dense enough - and says it will develop a new kind of supercapacitor.

Despite previous statements that the company has no interest in self-driving features, Lamborghini flirts with autonomous technologies in the Terzo Millennio. Lamborghini also noted the added benefit of additional freedom for designers and aerodynamicists.

Isner, Sock in contention for ATP Finals
The victor had to be decided in the tie break and Isner opened it with a mini-break, following a big forehand error from the Serb. The 77th-ranked Krajinovic had only won 17 matches in his whole career - thwarted by a wrist injury - before this tournament.

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 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. There's nothing really unusual about that as many cars nowadays have individual wheel motors - what is much cooler and more interesting is the way electricity is stored on the auto. However, the joint plan is apparently for the carbon panels to also act as an accumulator for energy storage.

Lamborghini has been using low-voltage supercapacitors for about five years in its V12 Aventador, and calls the use of more energy-dense examples for electric drive "the next logical step".

Another Third Millennium concept is development of a self-monitoring and self-healing carbon-fiber body to "detect...damages in its substructure caused by accidents" and begin a "self-repairing process via release of micro-channels filled with healing chemistries" to fix the faulty panel. This would allow further weight reduction with increased use of carbon fiber or the application of CFK to high-fatigue parts.
