Walter de Silva, HMIC of Audi's design b ro, is now officially also the big beef honcho of Lamborghini in the wake of Luc Donckerwolke's move over to SEAT. We're pretty bummed about this, frankly. Certainly, Donckerwolke at SEAT makes sense, as the Spanish VW brand is getting its ass handed to it by its Eastern European sibling, Skoda and some of Luc's penmanship might well spice things up. But since SEATs aren't sold in the US, there'll come a time when we'll see a new Lambo on the road and not be able to internally shout "Donckerwolke!" just for the pure joy of it. Curse you, VW! Curse you!
