Automobili Lamborghini expands prototype and pre-series vehicle development facilities, and opens new acoustic test room.
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.
Lamborghini June Drive 2017 – Lamborghini Vancouver
Another event under our belt along with another success! This past weekend we hit Vancouver Island hard with 16 Lamborghini drivers and their passengers in support of Robert’s Ride. Another perfect combination of people, cars, and weather to result in a great 2017 June Drive. Luxurious experiences is a large part of our business and culture.
We started this drive on Friday, June 2nd in Vancouver where everyone gathered and convoyed over to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. There, our impressive group relaxed on the 1hr and 40min cruise over to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island where we would find excellent roads and weather conditions. Our first stop was the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit in Cowichan. Drivers completed laps around this short but challenging track and enjoyed lunch in the circuit’s clubhouse.

Comments Off on Lamborghini Huracán Performante sets new ‘Ring record

On 5 October 2016, the Huracán Performante set a new production car lap record of 6:52.01 min on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.
Following the day’s open sessions on the “Ring”, at 17.00 officials closed the track to other manufacturers. After official track checks this left just a 15-minute window for Lamborghini to make one attempt at the lap record with a production Huracán Performante, still in its development camouflage.
With Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, who also drove the Aventador SV to its Nürburgring sub seven-minute lap time in 2015, the Huracán Performante warmed up its tires and made its rolling start, fitted inside and out with onboard cameras and telemetry to record the car’s lap.
