AutonetMagz – Thanks to technological advance now didn’t need a thick metal to got a strong body. As a lot of material such as carbon fiber who not only lightweights, but also strong and rigid. The material could be combined with aluminum or titanium as the each examples could be seen on Lamborghini Huracan and Pagani Huayra.
But Lamborghini is one of the makers who intense in researching this material and has spent more than 30 years of time. One of their latest founding is the forged carbon fiber reinforced plastic as it claimed that the strength are nearing the actual carbon fiber but could be produce in a quicker time and cheaper production costs.
Lamborghini partnering with Boeing when mixing the carbon and plastics, as the result could be seen on Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. Its the result of Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory (ACSL) lab of Lamborghini located in Seattle who came up with the idea. As they now build a new lab in Seattle to make it easy in partnering with Boeing to produce a strong but lightweight composite material.
All the staff and researcher will work side by side with peoples from Advanced Composites Research Center (ACRC) at Lamborghini HQ on Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. Where from there, newly developed technology will be implemented to Lamborghini cars and prepared for a mass production and able to be sold.
“By keep on developing our composite material creation, we able to create products that could increase Lamborghini cars potential, both from performance and looks,” said Lamborghini R&D Boss, Maurizio Reggiani. “The ability to take advantage lightweight material give advantage to our cars, especially in its production phase.” further he said.
