MIT and Lamborghini team up to create electric car of the future

In a time when cities are getting more and more crowded and the bulk of research seems to be aimed at making cars more sustainable and smart, the good old fashioned sports car seems to have lost some of its identity.

Tesla Motors changed all that with the Roadster, an electric car that manages to stand its own against the sleekest and fastest of cars. Now, Lamborghini wants to take things to the next level. They teamed up with MIT engineers to create a prototype for the Terzo Millenio (the Third Millenium), an electric, self-healing car which can deliver high peak power and regenerate kinetic energy.

Lamborghini will provide the sweet set of wheels and the technology they have developed so far, while MIT boffins will ensure its ability to harvest and save energy.
