MIT Collaborated with Lamborghini to Create Electric Super Car ‘Terzo Millennio’

Lamborghini has announced a new design concept in collaboration with two laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The theory focuses on different dimensions of design and technology, such as energy storage systems, advanced materials, and propulsion systems. In a time once the high-end automobile business is moving away from traditional energy storage systems and traditional batteries, Lamborghini is investigating the potential of supercapacitors.

Five decades ago, Lamborghini employed low voltage supercapacitors from the favorite V12 Aventador. The potential for this storage system has to have the ability to deliver high peak power and regenerate kinetic energy using a limited influence from biking and aging during the car's life. At the same time, the system needs to be able to symmetrically release and harvest electric power. This system requires the utilization of new materials and produce carbon fiber structure and components -- carrying lightweight materials to the next level.

This is conducted via microchannels filled with recovery chemistries. The energy storage system right relates to functionality. It allows the Terzo Millennio to embody the Lamborghini soul while taking steps towards the path of producing 'Lamborghini electrical' -- focusing on large torque, reversibility, and also the possibility of transferring energy by wire. The overall design uses entirely new structure to ideal airflow.
