A new building, expected to be completed by the end of 2018, will be used to paint the body of the Urus SUV, which is scheduled to arrive on the market next year. The paint plant will extend over more than 10,000 square meters, further expanding the production site, which will extend from the 150,000 sqm, envisaged and reached up by end of 2017, to a total of more than 160,000 sqm of covered area.
The new paint facility will also impact favorably in terms of human resources: approximately 200 new hires will be made by the time the plant reaches full production capacity, adding to 500 jobs created due to the third Lamborghini model. The new plant will benefit from the most advanced technological systems with low environmental impact. A staff of highly-skilled workers will guarantee the highest standards of quality on products characterized by a high level of customization.
As part of the production site expansion, a new acoustic test room 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.
