This new design concept came as a bit of a surprise, after the Asterion LP910-4 hybrid concept, today we get to see a glimpse of the future in the form of an all-electric hypercar, the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio a preview of the Lamborghini for the third millennium.
The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is a showcase for five different areas, energy storage, innovation materials, propulsion, design, and emotion the Dinca Research Lab and the Mechanosynthesis Group at MIT took care of the first two as part of the agreement between Automobili Lamborghini SpA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology signed a year ago.
The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is a test bed for the use of supercapacitors to store power instead of traditional batteries, this will allow the new Lamborghini boast a storage system that can deliver high peak power and regenerate kinetic energy at the same time while avoiding the aging and cycling effect of current batteries.
The actual bodywork of the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is made from evolution in carbon fiber structures created by Lamborghini, in fact, the entire body of the car will be able to store energy as an accumulator and furthermore, the Terzo Millennio can ‘self-heal’ the structure of the body contains micro-channels that contain healing chemistries, after the system detects damage on the body it will be able to repair itself to avoid further cracks of the carbon fiber structure.
The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is still a four-wheel drive Raging Bull, each wheel contains an electric motor to take advantage of high torque and is able to deliver power by wire, thus resulting in a massive weight saving and freedom of design for the Lamborghini Centro Stile.
The Terzo Millennio is equipped with a virtual cockpit, which allows the driver to take a stint on one of the world’s famous race tracks with the help of a virtual co-pilot before attempting this drive by himself trying to keep up with the ‘ghost’ car.
The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is clearly a preview of how the Lamborghini design will evolve over the upcoming years, the successor to the Aventador surely has to be in development already, and while it has been confirmed the V12 will remain, for the Huracan successor a hybrid has been mentioned too, it is also certain the Urus will receive a Hybrid power plant in the near future too with the Terzo Millennio being all-electric, it is a glimpse of the Raging Bull after the Aventador successor.
Terzo Millennio: A New Chapter for Lamborghini
The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio, translating to “Third Millennium,” is an ambitious concept that pushes the boundaries of innovation and design. Unveiled as a result of the partnership between Lamborghini and MIT, the Terzo Millennio is an electric vehicle (EV) that challenges conventional design principles and performance standards for supercars.
As part of its electric vehicle efforts, Lamborghini and MIT recently filed a joint patent for a material that will serve as the technological base for a new generation of supercapacitors. This new technology aims to significantly enhance energy storage capabilities, making the Terzo Millennio more powerful and efficient than other EVs on the market.
The Terzo Millennio exhibits a futuristic design, with aggressive lines and an aerodynamic shape reminiscent of Lamborghini’s signature aesthetic. Despite its electric nature, Lamborghini has expressed its desire to maintain the brand’s emotional appeal and driving experience, which are integral to its identity.
In addition to the advanced supercapacitor technology, the Terzo Millennio features an innovative powertrain that boasts four electric motors, one at each wheel. This allows for precise torque vectoring, enhancing handling and performance. The electric motors also provide rapid acceleration, enabling the Terzo Millennio to compete with its internal combustion engine counterparts in terms of speed and power.
A Glimpse into the Future
The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio represents a bold vision for the future of the supercar industry. It highlights the company’s ability to innovate, adapt, and embrace new technologies while maintaining its commitment to performance, design, and emotion. As Lamborghini continues to explore the world of electric vehicles and further its collaboration with MIT, the Terzo Millennio serves as a stunning symbol of what the future may hold for automotive enthusiasts and the industry as a whole.
As an exclusive and highly advanced concept vehicle, its price is estimated at around $2.5 million US. However, it is essential to note that the Terzo Millennio is not a production vehicle, and its availability for purchase may be limited or subject to change.
