When you think about Lamborghini, you will hear the rumbling of the exhaust and you see something aggressive and elegant at the same time. The Italian factory is keeping up the pace with the 21st century, they partnered up with this school in the US called MIT. Yes MIT is the top institution for tech, so seams like they are not playing any risky game.
Lamborghini has always been a pioneer in many aspects of being a supercar, coming up with its centre located 12V motors was copied by many others.
It is not a big surprise that they want to lead again in setting directions and staying in the front.
“We want people to think of us more and more as a trendsetter in the super luxury and sports car segment,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
“MIT has always been a pioneer in innovation and we are proud to have signed this general agreement with such an illustrious institution, which will lead to the study of issues of mutual interest relating to the super sports car for the 3rd millennium.”
Lamborghinis innovation always came from the youngest generation in tech and design. This time they “had to” look for the best ones outside the company but to be honest maybe they should stick with the engine and design and leave the smart stuffs to the MIT guys.
So far we don’t know much about those super smart features, hopefully we will see the car speaking and all kinds wicked features before we need to let the steering and acceleration to the machines. That would be the end of a beautiful friendship.
