Only 20 models were ever made when it went on sale in 2011, with loyal Lamborghini customers the only people to receive an exclusive invite from the company to purchase the vehicle.
This rare footage of the car in action was filmed by British car enthusiast David Jeffrey, who documents car culture in Qatar.
He said: “With a large majority of the population being wealthy, car culture differs only due to more exotic vehicles being affordable.”
Capable of reaching a top speed of 210 mph the Sesto Elemento boasts an impressive 5.2 litre V10 engine however is still relatively lightweight weighing in at just 999 kg (2,202 lbs).
With the chassis, body, drive shaft and suspension components all made from carbon fibre the car can accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 2.5 seconds.
Every aspect of the vehicle has been geared towards performance including the 10 hexagon shaped holes in the engine cover, which are not just for aesthetics as they allow for air to be released from the engine.
The design of the car was made to be as streamlined and light-weight as possible with basic aspects such as a dashboard and conventional seats succumbing to requirements.
David said: “Comfort is provided to the driver and passenger through small cushions mounted to the chassis of the car.”
The light-weight design of the exclusive Lamborghini has left little space for amenities with only a stereo and air-conditioning to speak of, the interior has been left bare.
Despite the lack of amenities the Sesto Elemento is one of the most sought after Lamborghinis partly due to the limited release of the vehicle as well as its distinctive design.
The Sesto Elemento meaning the ‘sixth element’ in English, gets its name due to the fact that it is mainly made from carbon which has an Atomic number of 6.
