Lamborghini is about to have a new CEO.

His replacement will be former team principal of the Ferrari Formula One team, Stefano Domenicali.

In an interview with Autocar, Winkelmann shed light on the brand and the recent decision to stick to naturally aspirated engines.


“It’s a fierce battle, and it’s great for the customer. We think anticipation is key. You have to visualise what people are waiting for and exceed their expectations.

Going to turbos is about reducing C02, not improving air quality. We can clean our exhaust with after-treatment. So we can go for a while yet.”

Winkelmann is moving over to Audi’s Quattro performance division.
