Lamborghini Terzo Millennio - Full Electric Concept

Bill Liu													Founder and CEO Royole Corporation					2017 Innovator Under 35 His flexible components could change the way people use electronics

So-called "roboracers" aren't new, but Lamborghini said that its Terzo Millennio could be loaded with an ideal line around a racetrack such as Imola, shuttle its driver around the track first, then act as a virtual ghost vehicle for successive laps. As such, we can expect to see all manner of interesting cars come out of Volkswagen Group-owned Lamborghini in the near-future.

Let's get one thing straight right away, though, about that third millennium bit. All-wheel drive will still be a hallmark with future electric vehicles, Lamborghini said in the statement. More on this in a bit.

With the help of two labs at MIT that specialise in chemistry and mechanical engineering, Lamborghini has funded the project to lead the way in energy storage and material science.

At first glance, the results are fairly spectacular.

Michigan State's last-second field goal sinks Penn State's playoff hopes
Penn State's College Football Playoff hopes likely went down with the loss, having lost their last two by a combined four points. Penn State coach James Franklin has a 0-10 road record against ranked opponents, including five losses with the Nittany Lions.

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. 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.

Finally, the Terzo Millennio will be autonomous. This set-up also promises quick recharge using kinectic energy gathered when the auto slows, plus energy transfer and storage is very efficient with little lost during the various charge and discharge phases. Lamborghini thinks batteries won't work in a supercar as they're simply too heavy, and is working with MIT to "overcome the limits of today's technology and close the gap on conventional batteries' energy density, while preserving the high power, symmetrical behaviour and the very long lifecycle related to supercapacitor technology". The concept was unveiled as a part of MIT's EmTech conference. That is the reason why some of Lamborhini's engineers are in Massachusetts-the Italian supercar company is collaborating with two laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on an electric super auto concept called "Lamborghini of the Terzo Millennio". However, the joint plan is apparently for the carbon panels to also act as an accumulator for energy storage.

These technological innovations allowed Lamborghini's designers the ability to create a body around an entirely new architecture. 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.
