Lamborghini's low-flying Dreamliner


Lamborghini unveiled a one-of-a-kind Aventador LP 700-4 today, complete with a swoopy, blue and white Dreamliner-esque color scheme. The Aventador uses materials such as carbon fiber, similar to what is used in the 787 Dreamliner, that were developed at the University of Washington's advanced composite structures lab.

Paolo Feraboli, University of Washington assistant professor and director of the advanced composite structures laboratory, stands near the $370,000 one-of-a-kind Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 painted in the 787 Dreamliner motif. The car may be used for 787 delivery events, said Feraboli.
