Casey Stoner, two time world MotoGP Championship rider, recently visited the factory of fabled Supercar maker, Lamborghini. Based in the beautiful Sant’Agata Bolognese region, Stoner was given a private and in depth tour of the factory.
Greeted by Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann and Maurizio Reggiani, Board Member for Research and Development, Stoner was granted the rare opportunity of seeing, up close, historic cars in the museum plus toured the factory where he was able to see for himself the production process for the Aventador LP 700-4 and the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. The car is due to be released in August of 2015 and has already proven popular with buyers, with plenty of orders placed.
Stoner commented on his visit, saying it had been something he’d wanted to do since he was a boy, “For me, it’s been an incredible day….to get the opportunity to drive one of these cars and see how everything is made”. Stoner also mentioned his relationship with Italian motoring brands and companies, lauding the hands on process he witnessed during his tour. “For me to see first hand what’s involved in these cars has gone well beyond my expectations.”
At the conclusion of his visit, Stoner was granted possession of one of Lamborghini’s respected Huracán LP 610-4 to test for a few days, an opportunity he no doubt would take full advantage and enjoy highly.
