If you need a reason to beam a smile across the Internet today, let this bit of good news from Lamborghini (yeah, those zippy and ultra-luxe Italian sports cars) renew your coronavirus quarantine mood.

The car maker announced today that several of their production departments within their Sant’Agata Bolognese will be converted immediately to produce surgical masks and plexiglass shields for first responders working on the front lines of Italy’s virus reponse. Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna will receive the Lamborghini face masks and PPE (personal protective equipment) as a much-needed donation.

“Work on this solidarity initiative will be carried out by personnel of the saddlery that produce the interiors and specialty customization for Lamborghini cars, producing 1,000 masks a day,” a statement from the brand explained. “The medical shields will be realized in 200 units a day, using 3D printers within the carbon fiber production plant and the Research and Development department.”

The activity has been approved and supported by the Emilia-Romagna Region of Italy to comply with local regulations. As an additional sign of unity and support for the entire nation facing the Coronavirus emergency, every evening Lamborghini lights up the historic headquarter buildings in Sant’Agata Bolognese, with the colors of the Italian flag.
