The Future of Lamborghini Supercars – Electric and Self-Healing

Nov 09, 2017

The newest generation of Lamborghinis has been revealed and you might be surprised to know that they will not only be superpowered but also able to repair themselves. The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio concept car was unveiled at the EmTech conference this past Monday in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

This car is the result of a three-year partnership created between Lamborghini and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Terzo Millennio features a stylish, windswept design accompanied by the brand’s Y taillights. It also features orange-tinted wheels that look like something coming from a sci-fi movie.

The biggest part of the newest line of Lamborghinis is what you can’t see yet. Plans are in the work to develop supercapacitors that will provide powerful energy from an all-electric model.Unlike the traditional lithium-ion batteries in most electric cars, supercapacitors store their energy and don’t get as hot as lithium-ions. These supercapacitors will also be made from carbon fiber panels that are normally used to form the body of the car. That means the Terzo Millennio will be capable of drawing its own energy from the body. Essentially, the car is the battery.

Doing all of this in itself is quite an accomplishment, but the Terzo Millennio will offer even more. The concept is offering a way to continuously monitor the overall well-being of the structure. It can detect its own damage and wear plus implement micro-channels within the carbon fiber body to repair any small cracks.

Finally, the concept is also boasting of the ability to develop in-wheel electric motors. This would, in fact, eliminate the need for any single large engine. Essentially, Lamborghini, with the help of MIT, are planning to rewrite the future of sports cars forever.
