Stephan Winkelmann is currently the boss of Bugatti
Stephan Winkelmann will reportedly hold the top position for both brands, pending board approval
According to Autonews Europe, he could take charge as Lamborghini CEO as early as 1 December.
The German previously held the top job at Lamborghini from 2005 to 2016, seeing the Urus SUV into production before moving to Audi Sport.
His appointment would precede current Lamborghini boss Stefano Domenicali’s departure in January 2021, when he will leave to take over as CEO of Formula 1.
The new role will require approval by the board of Audi before it can be made official, because the German firm carries overall responsibility for Lamborghini.
An official announcement is expected later this week.
