Lambo & Carbon

Lamborghini Opens Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory - MotorAuthority

Quote:
Lamborghini has officially unveiled the “Automobili Lamborghini Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory” (ACSL) with an event held at the University of Washington. The unveiling of the lab publicly marks the automaker’s commitment to investing in the future of carbon-fiber technologies by partnering with leaders in aerospace and composite material development, including the University of Washington and aerospace company Boeing.
My opinion is that such an investment is not worthwhile if you are just planning to use the expertise for bodywork construction.

Could it be that they are planning to use carbon in chassis of future models? I wouldn't expect to see that on Gallardo successors. I wouldn't expect it for the Murcielago successor, as the development is at its final stages. I would like to see it on the successor of the successor of the Murcielago
