The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is a dream concept auto exploring the possibilities of electrified supercars of the future, that can fix their own carbon fibre...
But even stubborn Lamborghini knows the days of pure combustion-engined cars could be numbered, and so it's revealed a concept auto that embraces electrification. 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.
It's also looking to find ways for the chassis to monitor the degradation of the carbon composite and find a way for it to self-heal. The Terzo Millennio has been stripped to the core of a performance driving machine, with an ultra-lightweight structure, totally optimised for aerodynamic efficiency and allowing for just driver and passenger. So it will likely never make it onto public roads in its current form.
The first two were met with the help of the Dinca Research Lab (headed by MIT Department of Chemistry lead Mircea Dinca) and the Mechanosynthesis Group (run by John Hart of the Department of Mechanical Engineering).

Developed in conjunction with MIT, the Terzo Millennio Concept is Lamborghini's take on a future EV that is created to push the technology far beyond current levels.

In essence, this virtual driver's aid will allow you to complete a lap of a race track before you even take command of the auto.
One of the highlights is its energy storage capacity.
So far, famed Italian vehicle brand Lamborghini has refused to entertain the notion of electrifying its cars. 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. This is presumably achieved with the use of liquid-filled micro channels in its body construction which can detect opened channels before releasing a bonding agent in order to fix a damaged body part's integrity - yes, like Wolverine. In other words, much of what's being worked on in a lab here in Boston will be applied to future road cars, but perhaps not just one auto, all at once.
The Lamborghini Terzo Millenio was unveiled in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in the automaker's hometown of Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.
