Rouven Mohr (left) has been appointed chief technical officer at Lamborghini, leaving the role of head of verification and validation of whole vehicle at Audi in Germany. Mohr takes over from Maurizio Reggiani (right) who has spent more than half of his career at the helm of Lamborghini’s technical department. Reggiani assumes the position of vice president motorsport. His move comes during a transitory period in the racing sector toward an increasingly sustainable future.
Stephan Winkelmann, chairman and CEO of Lamborghini, commented, “Maurizio Reggiani has been behind every fundamental decision that has enabled this company to achieve today’s records. He was the father of Lamborghini’s most successful models, from the Aventador, the Urus, the Huracán to the Countach LPI 800-4 – models that have become icons in the history of this brand or will soon become so.
“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.”
Winkelmann added, “At the same time, we enthusiastically welcome Rouven Mohr back to the Lamborghini family, whose arrival comes at a crucial time of profound transformation for the company, in view of the upcoming electrification of the entire product range.”
Mohr joined Audi in 2008 as a testing engineer for chassis durability, gaining increasing responsibility. In 2014 he was named head of project management for whole vehicle for the Audi A3, TT, Q7 and Q8 models. In 2017 he moved to Lamborghini where he spent two years as head of whole vehicle development, overseeing the development of the Aventador, Huracán and Urus models. He then returned to Audi to take on the role of head of energy and weight management, and subsequently, in 2020, head of verification and validation of whole vehicle.
