Apple Car project gets veteran Lamborghini exec

Apple recently hired a former executive who worked for Lamborghini on its Apple Car project.

The Cupertino-based company has hired 20-year veteran Luigi Taraborrelli, as reported by Bloomberg. Taraborrelli oversaw vehicle dynamics and chassis during his Lamborghini tenure. Before that, the veteran executive worked on an Asterion concept car, the Huracan Sterrato, the Aventador, the Huracan and the Urus.

The recent hiring is based on the debate over whether the Apple Car project is still ongoing. Apple has lost several key figures on the project due to poaching and numerous delays. In particular, the project caused an automotive engineer to leave after being hired for just six months. The project also evolved in that a full vehicle was planned, but then it turned into autonomous systems and went back to a production model.

The Apple Car is considered an electric vehicle that can drive independently. There is no expected launch or release date for the product yet.
