Italian supercars back in production

Ferrari and Lamborghini supercars went back into production in the first week of May.

During the week commencing 8 May, the Ferrari factories in Maranello and Modena gradually returned to full production. The first car off the Ferrari production lines was a Monza SP2 with a black and grey livery. In the following days, an 812 GTS spider in Grigio GTS and a F8 Tributo in Rosso Corsa were among the first cars completed in the 12- and 8-cylinder lines.

Lamborghini restarted production on 4 May, in accordance with the Italian Prime Minister’s decree on 26 April. While company activities were temporarily suspended, Lamborghini repurposed some of its departments to produce medical protection masks and visors for St. Orsola Hospital in Bologna, and established a partnership with SIARE Engineering International Group for co-engineering and manufacturing breathing simulators.

Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: “We continue to nurture the dreams of our fans and customers, and on 7 May, through a virtual launch, we…presented a new car [the Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive] in order to complete our model range. We closed the first quarter
of 2020 despite the situation with very positive results. From these results we want to secure our swift return to a leadership position, delivering our vehicles once again as soon as our dealers around the world reopen for business.”
