Lamborghini Head Stephan Winkelmann On Speed, Weight and Neon-Colored Cars – Hannah Elliott – De Luxe – Forbes
Winkelmann indicates that the key to supercar fuel efficiency may not be hybrid engines but instead weight reduction.
The use of carbon will play a big role in the development of super light supercars, increasing the power to weight ratio, making some of these pieces of expensive art fuel efficient and a thrill to attempt to tame!
Another recent article indicated that Lamborghini was interested in purchasing or purchased a carbon fiber production plant. This would be a good step in achieving their weight reduction goals through vertical integration. It would help them to possess comparative advantages in light weight vehicles and also allow the consumer costs to be reduced through economies of scale!
