Domenicali did not confirm if the LB48H was that beast, though, or whether this aero car went by some other codename.The Lamborghini boss also said the company will stress-test these cars at the Nurburgring – basically offering an invitation for spy photographers to book a ticket, there – because it is important the cars run smoothly lap after high-performance lap.
