Apple has recruited a former Lamborghini executive as part of its Apple Car project.
The company is reportedly moving full steam ahead with the rumored Apple Car, under the codename Project Titan, and is adding new talent to its roster to help speed up the production of the automobile.
Luigi Taraborrelli is a 20-year veteran of Lamborghini and has a background in chassis and vehicle dynamics. During his career at Lamborghini, the executive worked on a number of iconic Lamborghini models including Urus, Huracan, and Aventador, and helped concept cars like Asterion.
As well as working in chassis development, Taraborrelli has experience in areas like brakes, handling, steering, and suspensions, so brings a great deal of experience to the table at Apple.
The Cupertino company has been working on its own vehicles for a number of years but has faced a number of challenges and setbacks – and on more than one occasion has cancelled plans for a car already. The company switched gears to spend time working on autonomous systems, but now it appears as though a fully-fledged Apple Car is in development ahead of a release in the coming years.
