Here are a few pictures from a visit today with Paolo Feraboli, an assistant professor of aircraft materials and structures and director of the Lamborghini composites lab at the school.
One of these suspension pieces was developed at the lab for the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento prototype shown in Paris last year. Can you tell which one is made with forged carbon fiber?
Can you find the UW logo cast in the carbon Lamborghini suspension component held by Feraboli?
If you couldn’t find the logo, here’s a close-up. Alternatively, you may be able to peer into the car someday at the Lamborghini museum near Bologna, Italy.
This is a scale model of the carbon monocoque, demonstrating the casting approach that Lamborghini decided to use with its new $370,000 Aventador:
A full-size monocoque sits across the room, waiting for a V-12 and a few other pieces:
Feraboli found a great parking place for this Gallardo factory demo car:
