Lamborghini Opens A New Facility For Concepts And Special Editions

If you're hoping that Lamborghini will continue to bring the wow factor to auto shows with stunning special edition models like the Sesto Elemento and Aventador J, it looks as though you'll get your wish. The Bull announced that it is opening an entire facility for developing and building prototypes, concept cars and special edition models.

Lamborghini's new prototype and concept center includes a mini assembly line designed to fine-tune building standards and catch problems before they hit the main production lines. The aim is to develop the best manufacturing processes and standards so that your $400,000 doesn't go to waste at the dealership. That assembly line will also be used to build low-volume special edition models like the Sesto Elemento.

As always, Lamborghini's first concern is the environment (/sarcasm). The company says that the building housing the new miniature assembly line is the first multi-story industrial building in Italy to earn Class A energy certification. The building includes solar power and specially designed insulating materials to earn that bright red A. That should help offset Lamborghini's feeling of guilt for making some of the world's least efficient cars.

Unfortunately, Lamborghini didn't provide any hints or teasers as to what new, wild concept car or special edition would strut out of the facility first. We'll certainly be staying up nights thinking about the possibilities, though.
