Lamborghini opens new facilities in Sant'Agata Bolognese


New facilities in the factory of Sant’agata Bolognese.

The arrival of the Lamborghini Urus to the range of small Italian manufacturer has been a revolution such that even the factory of the brand has undergone a considerable metamorphosis. Nestled in the same location where it was assembled the first model that carried the name of Ferruccio Lamborghini, after the latest modifications it has suffered a considerable increase of surface area.

These images correspond to the opening of new areas for prototypes and pre-production units, an area that has increased its surface from 5,000 to 7,000 square feet, and whose works were referred to within the plans of growth of the plant to accommodate the production of the new Urus. Likewise, it has also opened a new testing room acoustic, in an event that led Stefano Domenicali and, President and ceo of the brand, and Maurizio Reggiani, a member of the Council for Research and Development of Lamborghini.

These new facilities will be used by the brand to the creation of new models and drive systems. In the case of new room acoustic test, this will take care that the new models have the sound that the brand’s customers expect of a model of the brand.

the beginning of the production of the Urus will lead to a dramatic increase in the productive capacity of the Urus. According to the latest statements of Stefano Domenicalli, the brand seeks to produce only 1,000 units of the new SUV in 2018, to go to a rate of production of 3,500 units per year starting in the year 2019. Although based on their performance in the market, Lamborghini is ready to increase these production figures if necessary.

For the moment, the expectations of the brand point to annual sales of around of those 3,500 units per year of a model, which will have a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo that delivers 659 HP (650 hp). Although later we await the arrival of a new plug-in hybrid, the first in the history of the brand from Sant’agata Bolognese.
