But it’s hardly surprising, isn’t it? They’re Lamborghini; it’s expected of them to be different.

Automobili Lamborghini has converted some areas of its production plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese in order to produce surgical masks and protective plexiglass shields, which will be donated to a local hospital.

The esteemed seamstress of the factory whose tasks usually involves piecing together decadent pieces of leather, are now relied upon to produce over 1,000 masks a day and as you can vaguely tell through the images, they’re probably the most stylish a medical personnel can put on. It’s even tagged with a Lamborghini label!

As a sign of unity and support for the people of Italy, every evening Lamborghini lights up the historic headquarter buildings in Sant’Agata Bolognese, with the colors of the Italian flag.

As for the plexiglass shields, 200 units are expected to be made per day, using 3D printers within the carbon fiber production plant and the Research and Development department.

Once completed, these equipment would be tested and validated by the Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences, prior to their delivery to hospital.

Automobili Lamborghini, Chairman and CEO, Stefano Domenicali said, “During this emergency, we feel the need to make a concrete contribution. The S. Orsola-Malpighi Hospital is an institution with which we have had a collaborative relationship for years, through both professional consultancy in promoting programs to protect our workers’ health, and in research projects. We will win this battle together by working in union, supporting those who are at the forefront of fighting this pandemic every day.”
