2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo Super Trofeo-Collector Edition

Lamborghini-inspired WATCH creates special edition race car

2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo Super Trofeo-Collector Edition

With an eye on the prize for the most elaborately orchestrated special edition, Lamborghini has created a one-off version of the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo.

Intended to celebrate the link between Lamborghini, and luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis, the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo Collector 2019 was unveiled at a special event in Geneva.

Handily, the Swiss city happens to be the base for Roger Dubuis Manufacture, making this year’s motor show the prime venue for this feast of elaborate design.

On the roof of this particular Huracán is a livery which resembles the internal workings of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán Performante watch. This is the latest timepiece from the firm, as part of the collaboration between the two companies

The movement of the Roger Dubuis Excalibur is said to mirror that of the Lamborghini V10 engine, whilst the ‘X’ design replicates the cross brace found inside the Huracán’s engine bay.

It means this special Lamborghini black and gold Super Trofeo Evo Collector is a car which pays tribute to a watch, which was inspired by the same car in the first place.

This could all sound a little contrived, but it is at least a great opportunity for an excuse to look at the Huracán Super Trofeo Evo. Lamborghini has picked the gold trim to highlight the aerodynamic details on the car, and it does look rather impressive.

Aimed at a mixture of amateur and professional drivers, the Super Trofeo offers either a potential route into sports car racing, or an expensive hobby for the wealth supercar owner.

Buying the 630hp V10 Huracán Super Trofeo Evo costs €235,000 (£201,000) plus taxes. American buyers actually have to stump up more, with a price of €295,000 (£252,000) instead.

It does essentially guarantee that anyone willing to take the plunge and enter the race series, is more than likely going to be able to afford the luxury timepiece that goes with it.

Will Roger Dubuis produce a new watch in honour of the Super Trofeo Evo Collector? Only time will tell.
