Sant’Agata Bolognese, 9 September 2021 – One strength of Automobili Lamborghini’s product design is the development and application of lightweight carbon fiber materials. Continuous research and an innovative approach have helped put Lamborghini at the forefront of this sector over more than 35 years. Here are 12 milestones in this extraordinary history:
1983: Lamborghini launches the development and use of carbon fiber for the first time. The new ‘Esperienza Materiali Compositi’ Department (known as E.Co), was set up thanks to the arrival of know-how from Seattle, developed from the first carbon fiber and Kevlar components within the Boeing 767.
In 2007, a division is set up in the Research and Development Center, now called the “Composites Development Center”, to focus on research into innovative materials and the development of new concepts and technologies for carbon fiber applications.iber.
