Tech Details MIT and Lamborghini started work on the Terzo Project in 2016. By 2030, they are expected to reach maturity and unveil the world's first fully developed self-healing car, the Terzo Millennio. The team is using nanotechnology, specifically nanotube tech, to create strong, lightweight and self-healing car bodies.  Simultaneously, they are embedding supercapacitors into the car b
