Automobili Lamborghini Announces Participation in Newspec

As an automotive leader in carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) technology, Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. has always pushed the envelope in terms of refining the production and application of composites materials. In November 2013, Lamborghini and 12 global companies launched the Newspec Project. Newspec (New cost-effective and Sustainable PolyEthylene based Carbon fiber for volume market applications) aims at the production of advanced carbon fiber through very promising, low-cost and sustainable precursors, such as polyethylene, both derived from bio-ethanol and recycled PE with relevant benefits to environmental and economic sustainability. The goal is to complete the project by 2017.
