Lamborghini’s back—with power to burn (01/29/2001)
BY LUCA CIFERRI

Lamborghini’s anticipated turnaround begins this year, with its first new car since the Audi takeover in 1998—actually, its first all-new car since 1990.

With nearly 600 horsepower on tap, it should be the world’s most powerful production car. At the Detroit auto show, Automobili Lamborghini CEO Giuseppe Greco confirmed the L147 will be shown to the press in midsummer, to the public in September at the Frankfurt show and go on sale shortly thereafter.

But L147 is still without a name; competitors had already claimed eight names Lamborghini considered.

“We have already built the fifth prototype of the new car, but we had to begin again from scratch to search for its name,” Greco said.

While outperforming Diablo and boasting more features, the L147 won’t cost much more, the result of modern production techniques and lower parts costs due to affiliation with Audi, Greco said.

The interior and exterior were penned by a Lamborghini-Audi team led by Luc Donkerwolcke, a young Belgian at Audi’s styling center in Ingolstadt, Germany. The car is technically similar to the Diablo it will supplant, with a steel tubular frame, carbon fiber body panels and aluminum roof and doors. The 48-valve, dohc 6.0-liter V12 is an evolution of the current Diablo 6.0. It couples to Lamborghini’s first-ever six-speed gearbox, plus full-time four-wheel drive. It will debut as a coupe, with a roadster and SV and GT “performance” versions to follow. Plans call for about 100 cars in 2001, along with over 200 Diablo 6.0 models. Eventually, the company expects to produce 450 L147s per year.

Lamborghini production will expand to 2000 cars per year with the addition of the L140, expected in summer 2003 as the focal point of the company’s 40th anniversary celebration. Targeted at the Ferrari 360 Modena, the L140 aims to outperform the Ferrari by 10 to 15 percent, at a similar price. If launched today, it would cost about $135,000.

Its aluminum spaceframe and body were developed in cooperation with Audi. Expect a 400-plus-hp, 4.0-liter 40-valve V10 in a 4wd coupe with a six-speed manual or sequential, F1-style gearbox.

Greco said the Italian design was chosen in competition among four sources: Audi’s styling center and three Italian firms. Italdesign reportedly prevailed, but Fabrizio Giugiaro, head of the firm’s Styling & Models division, declined comment. His father, Giorgio, styled exotics for Maserati, De Tomaso, Iso Rivolta and Lotus in his 45-year career, but never a Lamborghini.

Lamborghini to produce first brand new car since 1990 (01/10/2001)

Automobili Lamborghini CEO Giuseppe Greco confirmed at the Detroit auto show that the automaker's L147 project will be unveiled between June and July, publicly debuting in September at the Frankfurt show and going on sale shortly after.

The L147 is the Lamborghini's first brand new car since 1990. Production is returning to over 300 units a year, pointing to 450 cars for 2002.

The first new Lamborghini since the Audi takeover in July 1998, the L147 is still without a proper name. "We selected eight possible names and we felt confident at least a couple of them could usable but, boy, our competitors have already deposited everything! We have already built the fifth prototype of the new car, but we had to begin again from scratch to search for its name", Greco said.

The L147 will be above the Diablo in terms of performance and features, but won't cost a lot more, as it benefits "of more modern production techniques and of the first synergies with Audi, mainly on the purchase of components", Greco said.

The L147 interior and exterior were penned by a Lamborghini-Audi common team, leaded by Luc Donkerwolcke, a young Belgian designer working at Audi styling center in Ingolstadt, Germany.

On the technical side, the L147 is very close to the Diablo, being based on a steel tubular frame coupled with carbon fiber body panels, while the roof and the doors are in aluminum.

The DOHC, 48 valve 6-liter V12 engine is an evolution of the Diablo 6.0 introduced at the Detroit show in January 2000. Power will be very close to 600 hp, confirming Lamborghini as the maker of the most powerful production car in the world.

The L147 will feature the first 6-speed gearbox in Lamborghini history, while it will be offered only with permanent four wheel drive, the VT (viscous traction) system introduced in 1994 on the Diablo. "All our normal production cars will come with 4WD standard, only limited editions or racing versions could be offered with rear wheel drive" said Greco. Lamborghini stopped to make 2WD normal Diablos in late 1998 and last summer completed the limited run of 80 Diablo GTs, a 2WD model too.

The L147, to be unveiled in the completely upgraded Lamborghini headquarters of Sant'Agata Bolognese, near Modena, will debut as a coupe. Other body variants, possibly a roadster, and more performing versions as SV and GT, most likely will follow. Instead of the model year concept, Lamborghini is planning to add new variants every year, Greco said.

On the number side, the L147 is being tooled for 2 units a day, or 450 pieces a year. The Diablo was tooled for 3 units a year, but only in its first full year was built in a significant volume - 672 units - shortly after falling in the region of a fraction more than a car a day, or 230-240 a year.

In 1998 Lamborghini built 231 cars, 265 in 1999 and 296 in 2000, considerably better that the 270 units budgeted.

The renewed Diablo 6.0 accounted for 201 units, plus 60 units of the GT and the final lot of 35 Roadsters for USA only.

USA remained by far Lamborghini's biggest market, absorbing 100 units, followed by Germany with 40 and Switzerland with 30 cars. Turnover for 2000 was not announced yet, but Greco said it will surpass Euro 50 million.

The plan for 2001 is to surpass 300 units, making over 100 Diablo 6.0 - that will remain in production also after the introduction of the new car - and about 200 units of the new L147.

Now that the L147 is almost finished, Lamborghini is rushing to add its second new car, the L140. Now expected to be unveiled in summer 2003, as the focal point of the company 40 year celebrations, it will boost the company production to 2,000 units a year, being planned for 1,500 cars at full stream. If launched today, the L140 could cost around $135-140,000.

The car will be brand new, featuring an aluminum spaceframe developed in cooperation with Audi. The entire body will also be in aluminum. Lamborghini is not confirming any technical detail on the L140, understood to feature a brand new 48-valve, V10 engine of over 4 liters and more than 400 hp, completely developed in Sant'Agata Bolognese. The L140, to be launched too as a 4WD coupe only, will come with a new 6-speed gearbox offered both in fully manual version and with a sequential, F1-style system. This clutch-free system is understood to be Magneti Marelli's Selespeed, already offered by Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Mercedes Benz. On the styling side, Greco said only the L140 was penned by an Italian, which prevailed in a design competition that saw 5 scale models coming from four different sources: Audi styling center and three Italians. According to rumors coming from Turin, for the L140 design Lamborghini called Stile Bertone, Italdesign-Giugiaro and a freelance, Marcello Gandini, who penned all the production Lamborghinis since the Miura. Italdesign is said to have prevailed, but Fabrizio Giugiaro, the head of Styling & Models division of the company met at the Detroit show, refused to comment. His father Giorgetto, in his 45 year career - first at Bertone and Ghia and then as an independent designer - penned exotic cars for Maserati, De Tomaso, Iso Rivolta and Lotus, but never a Lamborghini. With the L140, the son is said to have won where his father never managed to, as the new car is - according to a supplier involved in the project - the work of Fabrizio Giugiaro.
