In addition to Ferrari being adversely affected by the recent tremors near and around its Italian production facility, which has led the company to begin a massive online auction, the earthquake has also had numerous effects on Ferrari’s biggest rival, Lamborghini as the initial earthquake on May 20th, and the subsequent aftershocks following, were centralized near Lamborghini’s home in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
So, do you want the good news or the bad news first? Well, we will give you the bad news first anyway.
Unfortunately, production of the Aventador has been affected by the earthquakes as Lamborghini recently revealed some of its key suppliers were also impacted by the quake and as a result, have had to either slow down production of relocate the production of specific Aventador components and this is likely to have a flow on effect for the production line producing the brand’s flagship supercar.
But out of this doom and gloom comes some great news, as we all know that every cloud has a silver lining and in Lamborghini’s case, that silver lining is production of the Gallardo not being interrupted at all by the quake. The Gallardo’s production facility managed to escape any damage and suppliers have not been affected either, so that’s all good news.
Additionally, Lamborghini confirmed that it’ll be doing its part to help out the local community affected by the earthquake revealing that the company is going to provide some financial support for education in the region after five laboratories were severely damaged.
