Maurizio Reggiani has relinquished his role as Lamborghini’s chief technical officer after 16 years to become its vice president of motorsport and the firm has appointed Rouven Mohr as its new CTO.
He began his automotive career in 1983 at Maserati’s engine design and development department, before joining Bugatti, where he was responsible for the EB110’s 3.5-litre quad-turbocharged V12 powertrain.
As the vice president of motorsport, the Spaniard will now oversee the strategic direction of Squadra Corse Lamborghini in a move that comes, the firm says, “at a time of transition for the racing sector towards an increasingly sustainable future”.
Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini chairman and CEO, said Reggiani has been behind “every fundamental decision” to help the Italian supercar manufacturer get where it is today.
“He was the father of Lamborghini’s most successful models, from the Aventador to the Urus, from the Huracán to the Countach LPI 800-4, models that have become icons in the history of this brand or will soon become so,” Winkelmann said.
He added: “His pioneering vision has given continuity to Lamborghini’s DNA, which has made the drive for innovation one of its founding values since 1963. Today, his deep and long experience in the automotive field will support one of the key strategic sectors, where we aim to continually increase our presence as protagonists.”
The firm has appointed Rouven Mohr as Regianni’s replacement as chief technical officer. Mohr, from Saabrücken, Germany, has previous experience as head of project management for the A3, TT, Q7 and Q8 models at Audi.
He moved to Lamborghini in 2017 as head of development for the Aventador, Huracán and Urus, then returned to Audi as head of energy and weight management, before stepping back to Lamborghini as head of verification and validation.
