Up to 500 new jobs and around 800 million euro in investment will enable Lamborghinis new SUV Urus to be manufactured in the factory of SantAgata Bolognese. A fundamental turning point for the historic Italian luxury car brand, which will double its annual production with a further 3,000 units and will expand the plant from 80 to 150 thousand square metres.
This is thanks to a memorandum of understanding signed yesterday at Palazzo Chigi between the Volkswagen-Audi Group (Lamborghinis parent company), Invitalia, the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and the Emilia Romagna Region.
Together with the Chairman of the Board Matteo Renzi, also present at the seat of the Government were the Minister of Economic Development Federica Guidi, the CEO of Invitalia Domenico Arcuri, the President of the Emilia Romagna Region Stefano Bonaccini, the heads of Audi and Lamborghini Rupert Stadler and Stephan Winkelmann, and the Volkswagen board member Luca De Meo.
For the Prime Minister, the agreement is a sign that Italy can provide expertise and competitive production platforms to those seeking to invest. It successfully concludes the operation to bring this important investment to Italy, avoiding outsourcing.
