This is a news which makes every true Lamborghini fan really happy. The Italian supercar maker is collaborating with Houston Methodist Research Institute, to study the carbon fiber composite materials, to be used mainly in prosthetic implants and also in subcutaneous devices.

The aim is to identify new materials that are lighter, better tolerated by the human body, and more resistant over time than those currently used in the medical field.
