Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo

Mechanical hearts beating in unison

The Watch Quote™ - October 28th, 2008



For the first time in history, Blancpain and Lamborghini, creators of exceptional models and inspirers of mechanical passions, are uniting their expertise to give rise to the world’s first ever Lamborghini automobile championship, the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo.



Blancpain, the world’s oldest watch brand, is delighted to announce its union with the iconic luxury carmaker, Lamborghini. This alliance is distinguished by the twin themes of speed and mechanical prestige. Presided over by the respective President and CEOs of Blancpain and Lamborghini, Messrs Marc A. Hayek and Stephan Winkelmann, the partnership was sealed in a ceremony that took place on October 25th 2008 at the last DTM Grand Prix of the season on the Hockenheim race track in Germany.

This union celebrates the technical performances and exclusive aesthetics of two manufacturers at the peak of their art combining tradition and innovation. The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is a dream come true for motor sports enthusiasts, setting the stage for the very latest gleaming Gallardo LP560-4 speed machines to compete in the world’s fastest and most demanding mono-brand championship.

From Mai 2009 onwards, 30 high-powered cars carrying the Blancpain-Lamborghini colours will compete on Europe’s finest racing tracks. With 570 HP, 540 N/m and peak speeds of over 300 km/h, driving such a vehicle is more than a race against the clock: it is an outright challenge to time itself! And when Lamborghini sets out to push the boundaries of speed, it naturally teams up with a watch brand characterised by a time-honoured pioneering spirit and peerless mechanical expertise. An intensely dynamic union that is gearing up to roar out of the starting blocks!
