Sesto Elemento Production, Uconnect At CES, Lexus Carbon Fiber: Today’s Car News

Carbon fiber is no longer the extremely exotic material it once was, but despite its appearance as trim or even structural elements of attainable, real-world cars, it’s still capable of being built into truly special vehicles, like the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento–which is made almost entirely of the stuff. Now it’s going into production, and though some of the details are changing, it’s sticking to its carbon-heavy theme.

Chrysler’s Uconnect system is getting some updates, unveiled today at CES. The first system that can add navigation functionality after purchase–or even after being sold as a used car–the new Uconnect offers some intriguing possibilities, as well as a likely boost to resale value of models equipped with it going forward.

Back to carbon fiber, Lexus says it plans to use the methods and lessons learned for production of the limited-edition (and now out of production) LFA supercar for other cars, too. We like.
