Yesterday, September 20th 2017, the legendary Lamborghini Headquarters in Sant'Agata Bolognese witnessed a world premiere unveiling by Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini Squadra Corse. It's the start of a new partnership in the form of a new caliber inspired by the Aventador S 'engine' and the new Huracàn Super Trofeo EVO.

While motorsports and watchmaking have long since discovered various affinities, the story of Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini Squadra Corse is a case of irresistible mutual attraction stemming from a shared focus on aesthetics in their respective R&D-driven approaches.

For the first time ever, the celebratory dinner was held in the middle of the production lines of the famous Aventador. A well-known Italian track was privatized for the occasion and guests were thus able to enjoy the adrenaline rush of an unforgettable driving experience.

Manufacture Roger Dubuis drew inspiration from the Lamborghini spirit. For the Excalibur Aventador S, the two models combine high-tech materials while ensuring top-rate performance. These include multi-layered carbon and C-SMC carbon based on the same technology as that is used for Lamborghini cars - a world premiere use of this material featured in the orange-liveried 8-piece limited edition.

The challenge lay in associating these materials with a sporting and sophisticated look, as well as a sense of luxury and prestige. The Roger Dubuis engineers and designers have created a charismatic power control display forming a central signature in the middle of the watch just like the sports car.

Living up to the "Powered by Raging Mechanics" signature, the Excalibur Aventador S is driven by an outstanding 'engine' in the shape of the specially developed Duotor calibre. This Lamborghini-exclusive Roger Dubuis movement is distinguished by engine strut bars revisiting the iconic Roger Dubuis Astral Skeleton principle, striking a contrast with the rest of the movement, as if the engine 'hood' were transparent.

Emulating the performance-enhancing longitudinal placement of Lamborghini engines tailored to the design of the sleek, streamlined cars, the double balance wheel is inclined at a similar angle, supported and highlighted by holders shaped like triangular wheel suspension assemblies.

The Excalibur Aventador S is available in two interpretations, with 88 and 8-piece limited editions. The former bears the Lamborghini "Giallo Orion" yellow paint code picked up in a number of design features, while the even more exclusive series comes in "Arancio Argos".

From Spring 2018 onwards, Roger Dubuis will enjoy a high-profile on-track presence as one of the main sponsors of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo: the legendary Lamborghini one-make series.

Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO

The brand-new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO will be attired in an all-new carbon fiber body kit developed with Dallara, one of the most influential Italian firms on the worldwide motorsport scene. New aerodynamic efficiency, a powerful V10 5.2 liter naturally aspirated 620 hp engine, 6-speed sequential gearbox; a speed machine derived from the road version.

From Spring 2018 onwards, Roger Dubuis will enjoy a particularly high-profile on-track presence as one of the main sponsors of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo: the legendary Lamborghini one-make series.
