Automobili Lamborghini America has announced that it will host “Lamborghini Day” at The Excel Institute on Jan. 25th to give automotive students hands-on training about the super-car line of vehicles. The Italian manufacturer of hi-end luxury sports cars Automobili Lamborghini SpA, based in Sant’Agata Bolognese, is part of the family of brands owned by the Volkswagen Group.
During the event, Lamborghini will have the 12-cylinder Aventador LP 700-4 and a Gallardo Spyder LP 560-4 on display while they give students an overview of the vehicles with an opportunity for the students to ask questions. Students will also be able to inspect the vehicles’ engines, interiors and exteriors.
The Excel Institute, which provides scholarships for vocational training in the field of automotive technology for at-risk youth and adults, is one of Volkswagen Group of America’s (VWGoA) community partners. The partnership supports Excel’s most significant expenses related to life and employability skills such as computer literacy and one-on-one academic tutoring.
Volkswagen and Audi technicians also train the Excel Institute teachers about new technologies, maintenance, and repair (Train the Trainer). VWGoA and The Excel Institute are developing reciprocal shadowing and hosted seminar opportunities for employees and students to visit job sites. To date, this support has enabled more than 250 students to participate in The Excel Institute’s Life Skills program.
“Lamborghini is pleased to be able to host Lamborghini Day at Excel Institute, which is one of our esteemed community partners,” said Wolfgang Hoffman, Chief Operating Officer Automobili Lamborghini America. “These students represent the workforce of tomorrow, and we’re excited to be able to give them an opportunity to learn about this elite auto brand in a manner that is hands-on, up close and personal. This event is another way for us to demonstrate our continued commitment to the communities that we serve.”
“Our students could not be more excited to see and touch vehicles of this caliber,” said Cheryl Edwards, Excel’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are training our men and women to work with the most up-to-date technology, and are honored to have Lamborghini on site sharing their knowledge and information. It’s possible that one day in the near future some of our students will be working on vehicles like the ones at the event.”
