Industry News / Comments

Maurizio Reggiani will become VP of Motorsport and hand over his role of Chief Technical Officer to Rouven Mohr.

Lamborghini has announced two changes within the company's organizational structure. After 16 years, the brand's Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Maurizio Reggiani will hand over the reins to Rouven Mohr. Reggiani will now take up the position of Vice President Motorsport at Lamborghini.

The 63-year-old's illustrious career in the supercar industry has seen him surrounded by Italian exotica for most of it. He started out at Maserati, working for the company's engine design and development department. This was followed by eight years at Bugatti, where he took charge of the 220 mph EB110's powertrain. 1995 saw Reggiani join the Raging Bull as Project Leader for the Murcielago.

In 2006, he was appointed as CTO and is credited with defining the strategies behind the majority of design and technological innovations of the brand's V12, V10, and, eventually, turbocharged V8 powertrains. Now, Reggiani faces an entirely new - but equally important challenge - the direction of the brand's motorsport division.

In recent years, Lamborghini has become a notable player in the GT championships, with 42 race wins since its first-generation Huracan GT3 race in 2015. In fact, the Sant'Agata Bolognese-based carmaker ended the 2021 racing season with seven international GT3 championship titles.

Lamborghini notes Reggiani's new role is aimed at "strengthening Squadra Corse Lamborghini in prestigious and highly competitive championships," especially as the racing sector heads toward a more sustainable approach.

The company's CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, praised Reggiani for his contributions to the Lamborghini brand. "He was the father of Lamborghini's most successful models, from the Aventador to the Urus, from the Huracan to the Countach LPI 800-4, models that have become icons in the history of this brand or will soon become so." The Urus SUV has been a major hit for the Italian company, helping the brand achieve unprecedented sales figures.

His successor, Rouven Mohr, formerly worked for Audi. He has quite the CV, heading up project management for a number of models, including the A3, TT, Q7, and Q8. Moving to Lamborghini in 2017, he oversaw the development of the Urus, Huracan, and Aventador. A brief return to Audi as their head of energy and weight management was followed by a stint as Lamborghini's head of verification and validation. Now, he steps into the role of Chief Technical Officer.
