Lamborghini doors work hydraulically. They are opened and closed by hydraulic cylinders that are controlled by the car’s computer system.
The system can be activated either manually or automatically depending on the driver’s preferences.
When the car is started the computer system sends a signal to the hydraulic cylinders to open the doors.
When the car is turned off the computer system sends a signal to the hydraulic cylinders to close the doors.
If there is an electrical failure or if something happens that interrupts the computer’s signal then the doors will open or close manually depending on which way they were the last set.
How Do Lamborghini Door Hinges Work?
Lamborghini door hinges open outwards and use a hydraulic system to stay open.
The door hinges are attached to a hydraulic piston that opens the door when the ignition is turned on.
The piston is connected to the door by two metal rods and there is a small tank of hydraulic fluid inside the car that feeds the piston.
When you close the door it pushes against a spring-loaded valve that stops the flow of fluid to the piston and this causes the piston to retract and pull the door closed.
How Do You Open Lamborghini Doors?
There are a few ways to open Lamborghini doors.
One way is to have the key in your hand and insert it into the lock on the door.
Turn the key until you hear a clicking sound and then pull up on the door handle.
Another way to open the doors is by using the remote control.
Press the button on the remote control that corresponds to the front or rear driver’s side door and hold it down until you hear a beep.
Then pull up on the corresponding door handle.
Why Do Lamborghini Doors Open Upwards?
There are a few reasons.
One is that it makes the car more aerodynamic and thus faster; opening the doors sideways would create more drag and resistance.
Additionally upward-opening doors make it easier for passengers to get in and out of the car; if the door opened sideways they’d have to step over the door frame which can be awkward or impossible depending on the size of the person.
And finally Lamborghini wanted its cars to have a unique signature feature that would set them apart from other luxury brands.
Opening the doors upwards is certainly distinctive and immediately recognizable.
