The Apple car project isn’t dead yet. The tech giant is even pushing forward with the project by hiring 20-year Lamborghini veteran Luigi Taraborrelli to work on the vehicle, according to Automotive News citing unnamed sources “with knowledge of the situation.”
Taraborrelli has been the R&D head of chassis and vehicle dynamics at Lamborghini since 2008, according to his LinkedIn page. This job includes signing off on a vehicle’s suspension, steering, braking, and driving-assistance systems. He worked on the Urus, multiple variants of the Huracan and Aventador, plus limited-run vehicles like the Centenario and Veneno.
In 2021, there was a flurry of reports about Apple hunting for a partner to assemble its car. Hyundai confirmed the companies were in negotiations, but the deal fell apart allegedly because the South Korean automaker didn’t just want to be a contract manufacturer of the vehicle.
