Lamborghini wants to go back to work as usual. But when it comes to renowned Italian supercar experts, this doesn't just mean continuing production.
Automaker late last week announced in a press release this production would continue on Monday at the plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese. And if that isn't enough to set the heart of auto lovers, the company plans to open a new car on Thursday.
While Lamborghini was willing to return to his job, the mark stressed that production would continue in line with government rules. The automaker also worked with the local union to develop a strategy that will ensure the safety of all its employees. He also promised to continue watching the "evolution of infectiousness" and said he would be ready to adjust the protocols as needed.
"We are ready to start again with great energy, but we also work with strict protocols to protect what is most valuable to us: the safety of our people," said President and CEO Stefano Domenicali. “This priority was our first closure to the Italian automotive company, and it remains our guiding principle for good reasoned and safe recovery, because we still haven't won the war against Covid-19.”
But continuing full operations is more than just making a vehicle for Lamborghini. The company announced that it will introduce its latest car during a virtual launch on May 7, but it is unclear what type of vehicle the new car will be, although the company says it will "complete the model range." Like CNET reports, Some industry experts believe the company has developed a new V12 engine supercar. Whether the launch Thursday will explain whether the vehicle will be an open question for now.
Lamborghini stopped production in mid-March with the rapid spread of Covid-19 along with rival Ferrari. Italy has been one of the toughest hit countries in the world, and the company has rapidly transformed its production lines to make personal protective equipment, including masks and visors for healthcare workers in Bologna and elsewhere in the country.
