Automobili Lamborghini has officially opened its new carbon fiber research facility, the Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory (ACSL), in Seattle, Washington. Operating as an entity outside of the company’s headquarters in Sant’ Agata Bolognese, Italy, the ACSL is responsible for unlocking new potential in carbon fiber.

Seattle was selected strategically for its collaboration with Boeing in working toward carbon fiber innovations that are beneficial in both automotive and aerospace applications.

“Carbon fiber is a material that Lamborghini has a long history with. Starting with the Countach Quattrovalvole and continuing today, it is one of the most important keys to the success of our cars in the past, present and future,” said Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini CEO.
