Lamborghini opens new facility to manufacture prototypes, pre-series vehicles

Article by Christian A., on July 10, 2012

Lamborghini has recently opened a new facility that’s intended for the limited production specialty models. At the facility, the automaker will be able to fine-tune its production. It believes that the risk of defects will be eliminated by duplicating the production line since it could now examine how each vehicle is built. Notably, this new manufacturing house would be energy-efficient.

From this facility, Lamborghini will make a limited edition of the Sesto Elemento (which is Italian for sixth element) concept seen at the 2010 Paris Auto Show. This car is named after carbon and so it is built nearly totally from this material. This car weighs 2,202 lbs. It will be powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that could deliver 562 hp. This car could then accelerate to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. Only 20 samples of this car will be made.

“Our new building confirms Lamborghini's commitment not only to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, but also to advanced technology and innovation with an eye on the future" said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based company. 

“The earthquakes that recently struck our region caused serious problems that have placed a considerable strain on us, on our families, and on our local area. However, we know that the strength to begin a new springs from the daily commitment and the work that each of us brings to bear. That’s why today’s inauguration also has a symbolic meaning of renaissance and of a strong impetus for recovery".
