Terzo Millennio is one of the very ambitious project by Lamborghini, it is a futuristic electric car
of this sports car giant company.
This car is a collaboration product between Lamborghini and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Researchers of MIT and Lamborghini are working to develop a carbon fiber material which can heal itself from any crack or scratch.
In this car supercapacitors will be used instead of batteries as supercapacitor can store and release energy simultaneously to increase performance.
Supercapacitors are used in applications where many rapid charging and discharging cycles are required. They fill the gap between batteries and capacitors. In automobiles , buses and trains it is used in regenerative braking.
As per information share on Lamborghini official website " Lamborghini aims to reduce weight and to increase the availability of electric energy using structural electric energy storing composites as a rechargeable battery. The target is to improve the nanomaterial technology, diffusing nano-charges in CFK-based panels able to store electric energy and in the meantime to form the body and structures of the car. At the same time, the project aims to combine the technology to monitor continuously the whole carbon fiber structure, both visible and invisible, with the concept of health-monitoring: the goal is to provide for the Terzo Millennio the ability to conduct its own health-monitoring, to detect cracks and damages that might occur after accident, throughout its substructure, while limiting or reducing to zero the risks correlated to the presence and propagation of cracks in the carbon fiber structure."
As this vehicle have electric power-train, four motors will be used each on a wheel to make it a all wheel drive. Also using motors on each wheel will give a better torque control.
Lamborghini is working on technology which will help this car to charge itself during its run with its body. The battery will store at the place where generally you can find engine of a Lamborghini.
They are known for the engine roar, the crack of engine and in this electric vehicle it is also taken care of, a vent is made from front to tail in this car which will bypass the air and on basis of the air flow artificial sound will be produced just like Lamborghini. This car will be light in weight due to carbon fiber material.
This lights of this vehicle are designed in Y , which really looks cool, in wheels you can see winding of wire which represent it is an electric vehicle.
We can say that now everyone is realized that the next big thing in automotive sector is electric vehicle, even in sports vehicle, and moving with the trend keeps the business growing even if you are Lamborghini.
