Self-Repairing Lamborghini Terzo Millennio EV Concept Bets on Supercapacitors

In fact, the two entities joined up back in 2016, intending "to write an important page in the future of super sports cars for the third millennium", and the Terzo Millennio (Third Millenium in Italian) is the first fruit of their cooperation.

Smack in the middle of congested Boston, Massachusetts is far from where I imagine myself when I think about hanging out with the Lamborghini team. That is part of the reason why Lamborghini is working with MIT-it wants to revolutionize the approach to energy storage by moving away from conventional batteries and investigating the potential of supercapacitors. Lamborghini and MIT even said they are also looking into using the car's carbon fiber body as an energy storage medium. Lamborghini also says putting the motors in the wheels allow 'freedom for designers and aerodynamicists'.

Automobil Lamborghini has finally put out their announced electric super sports auto in their new designconcept "Lamborghini of the Terzo Millennio". The collaboration is substantially financed by Automobili Lamborghini and meant to lead to radical innovation in energy storage systems technology and material science. As such, we can expect to see all manner of interesting cars come out of Volkswagen Group-owned Lamborghini in the near-future.

Then there's the Terzo Millennio's "self-healing" capability, as the auto is supposed to be able to detect cracks and carbon fibre damage, and fix itself with "via micro-channels filled with healing chemistries". 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.

Use editorial freedom wisely in public interest, Media should maintain credibility : PM
Veteran actor Rajinikanth , who is speculated to enter into politics, was also present in the audience. He also added that vernacular newspapers continue to be important even today, as it was back then.


Besides bulky battery packs, Lamborghini is more interested in the application of supercapacitors in its future supercars, which promise high power and high durability.

On the driving front, the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio will follow suit with vehicle makers like Tesla, having all four wheels powered by independent electric motors to retain Lamborghini's all-wheel-drive hallmark in its future electric cars. Naturally Lamborghini and MIT are developing an answer here, too - let the carbonfibre "heal" itself. To keep the weight down, the monocoque is built using Lamborghini's Forged Composite technology. Also in the works is a "self-healing" mechanism, whereby the auto can automatically detect any damage to the frame and activate chemical reactions to fix it before it spreads.

In other word's, the car's own body is the battery, which in theory sounds somewhat unsafe.
