The museum also explores the world of aerodynamics and electronics, highlighting recent advanced technologies applied to the Huracán and the Aventador, such as the active aerodynamics system ALA, the predictive logic of the LDVI system and the innovative user interface.
The reopening of MUDETEC also coincides with exciting new collaborations. The first concerns the Architecture for Exhibition project, developed by Automobili Lamborghini in partnership with Young Architects Competitions (YAC), a Bologna-based architecture academy that promotes international architectural design competitions and training programs for young architects. Young trainees will have the unique chance to work on MUDETEC's 2021 design, under the supervision of Giuseppe Zampieri, founder of the David Chipperfield Architects branch in Milan, and with the support of some leading international architects.
In another collaborative project, some pieces from the MUDETEC collection will be presented at the Cité de l'Automobile, the largest automobile museum in the world, located in France, in Mulhouse, in Alsace. The exhibition, which runs from July 9, 2020 to January 10, 2021, will focus on Automobili Lamborghini for the first time in its history. It will tell visitors about the history of the brand, highlighting the uniqueness of Lamborghini cars and the dreams that have inspired the brand and its enthusiasts over the years. From the first visionary models to the latest and most innovative cars, the exhibition tells the story of Lamborghini and all the successes achieved over the years. In addition to the vehicles, a multitude of archival documents will also be on display.
