Lamborghini plans to make extensive use of carbonfibre to reduce the weight of all its future models as part of its shift away from making cars with ever-increasing top speeds.
Lamborghini president and CEO Stephan Winkelmann believes a reduction in weight of its models will allow the firm to further improve handling and acceleration, as well as increasing power-to-weight ratios.
His comments were made in an official statement – titled Lamborghini’s manifesto for future super sports cars – released alongside the second teaser image of its new Paris concept car, which Autocar understands will preview the all-new Murciélago.
The concept car will make extensive use of carbonfibre, something Winkelmann said every new Lamborghini would feature. This material is shown prominently in both of the teaser pics released so far ahead of the concept’s debut at Paris on 30 September.
