Just to recap, the Terzo Millennio utilizes high-capacity supercapacitors instead of batteries, due to ability for rapid storage and discharge of energy. In other words, they’re made to simultaneously capture and release energy to give the car an increase in performance, without having the depend on chemical reactions.

The Lamborghini Miura P400S , also known as the Miura S, made its debut at the Turin Motor Show in November 1968, where the original chassis had been introduced three years earlier.

In the near future, we may see 3D-printing being used to manufacture everything from smartphones to even cars, but physicist Sterling Backus and his son couldn’t wait for the latter. So, they started work on a 3D-printed Lamborghini Aventador. They’ve spent around $20K on parts, with most of the body parts, including the panels, taillights, headlights and air vents, being 3D-printed, while others had to be ordered so the end project can actually be driven – frame, suspension, engine, etc. Read more for additional pictures and information.
