Release Date: 09 June 2017
Sant’Agata Bolognese, 9 June 2017 – Automobili Lamborghini has significantly expanded its prototype and pre-series vehicle development areas, as part of the ongoing production facility growth in readiness for its Super SUV, the Urus. The existing building has been extended from 5.000 m2 to 7.000 m2.
A new acoustic test room, part of the overall expansion, was officially inaugurated with the attendance of Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member for Research and Development of Automobili Lamborghini.
The sound of a Lamborghini represents one of the most emotive experiences attached to the super sports car marque. The acoustic test room, which has been realized according to the latest technical standards, allows adjustment of particular sound sensations in order to create the typical Lamborghini driving experience, involving all the senses.
In line with Lamborghini’s continual quest for innovative solutions, the new facility also supports the acoustic adjustment of lightweight construction components, one of Lamborghini’s core competences. The new facility will additionally play an important role in the realization of future vehicle concepts and drive train systems.
