Lamborghini has made a substantial financial contribution to the ACSL and intends to utilise ACSL’s research to develop future vehicles with lighter, stronger and more versatile materials.

Lamborghini CEO and president Stephan Winkelmann said: “Lamborghini remains committed to investing in its future, and advancing carbon fiber composite technologies is the key to achieving many our goals.

“As Lamborghini has long been influenced by aerospace technology, the University of Washington’s collaboration with The Boeing Company and the Federal Aviation Administration is the complementary fit to furthering our research and development programs that will continue to set the benchmark in carbonfibre technology.”
