“the terzo millennio is the visionary outcome conceived by the lamborghini centro stile to express future design elements, taking into account the radical changes in technology and anticipating elements of forthcoming lamborghini design. an example for a very strong statement is the evolution and further development of the lamborghini typical y-signature in the front and rear lights.”
