Automobili Lamborghini Opens New Building Designed for Development of Prototypes and Pre-Series Vehicles

Today, Automobili Lamborghini inaugurated their latest building designed specifically for the development of prototypes and pre-series vehicles. The new structure is the first multi-story industrial building in Italy to earn Class A energy certification. Attending the ceremony were Corrado Clini, Minister of the Environment, Land and Sea; Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini; Paola Gazzolo, Regional Councillor for Territorial Security of Emilia-Romagna; and Daniela Occhiali, Mayor of Sant'Agata Bolognese, as well as numerous distinguished dignitaries and officials.

The occasion represents a further development in Lamborghini's strategy towards environmental sustainability. Moreover, it shows Lamborghini's desire to send a positive message of recovery to the Emilia region, hit hard by the recent earthquakes. As further proof of Lamborghini's solidarity with the towns and cities impacted, the company has made donations towards the rebuilding of five school laboratories. In addition, it announced today at the press conference that a part of the proceeds from the events celebrating Automobili Lamborghini's 50th anniversary in 2013 will be contributed to help rebuild cultural treasures and places of worship in areas damaged by the earthquake.
