Lamborghini's Terzo Millennio concept is a supercapacitator-powered future supercar

But unlike conventional batteries created to mete that electricity out in a measured fashion, a supercapacitor can deliver a huge amount of power all at once to provide, for example, the kind of juice that will enable supercar acceleration. New supercar received four electric motors located at each wheel, and in tandem with the battery for energy storage will be the responsibility of the capacitors located under the body, and "intelligent" recovery system. The car's carbon fiber body allows the entire vehicle to work as one big energy storage medium - nearly like a battery on wheels.

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.

"We are embracing what is impossible today to craft the realities of tomorrow".

The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio (which is Italian for the "third millennium") certainly does look like it belongs to a future era.

But more than anything else, the vehicle probably previews Lambo's near future design direction; it also confirms the Audi-owned automaker's commitment to eventually move to electric powertrains. As such, we can expect to see all manner of interesting cars come out of Volkswagen Group-owned Lamborghini in the near-future.

Trading batteries for supercapacitors and lightweight aluminum with self-healing, energy-storing carbon fiber, the Terzo Millennio is full of pie-in-the-sky technology promises, but its declaration is clear: some future Lamborghinis will run exclusively on electrons.

Another innovative feature of the Terzo Millenio is the integration of energy storage technology into its carbon fiber body and structures.

Naturally Lamborghini is all about the theater of the supercar, and the Terzo Millennio, with its responsive electric motors and four-wheel torque control, promises blistering performance combined with its active aerodynamics.

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".

An element of the Terzo Millennio that may not take a generation to develop could be the car's "Piloted Driving" systems. This would allow further weight reduction with increased use of carbon fiber or the application of CFK to high-fatigue parts. 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.
