Like it or not, the day of big and bulky vehicles is slowly coming to an end. Not that we’re sad about it because we’re not. Big and bulky doesn’t equate to light and fast and if you haven’t noticed, we’re all about top speed in these pages.
That being said, we weren’t the least bit surprised to find out that one supercar maker is slowly ramping up the machinery to build lighter – and faster – supercars in the near future.
In light of their new direction of building lighter supercars, Lamborghini recently opened its new Advanced Composites Research Center in its hometown of Sant’Agata Bolognese. The new research center will be tasked to develop a number of new design, shaping, and production processes to ensure that they meet the standards and expectations of building complex carbon fiber structures to be used in future Lamborghini models.
We’re glad to see that an esteemed automaker like Lamborghini is taking the steps to further develop both their cars and their brands. And with carbon fiber material being used in production-ready vehicles becoming more and more prevalent these days, Lamborghini is looking to be a few steps ahead of the competition.
