Exotic cars and fine handcrafted timepieces complement each other in a similar way that salt and pepper do. They just work. In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the exotic automotive industry and even specific vehicles altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular products available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X
There is nothing better than seeing an Italian supercar manufacturer work in unison with a luxury Swiss watch brand. For Automobili Lamborghini and Roger Dubuis, that idea became a reality in 2017 at the legendary Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata, Bolognese. Since then, the similarities that the two brands share continue to be highlighted throughout the collection of hyper watches styled to complement the supercars they take after. Once Automobili Lamborghini proudly announced the launch of the Countach LPI 800-4 in 2021, Roger Dubuis was quick to respond with the breathtaking Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X. While they two look the part, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X and Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 define themselves as the perfect performance pair.
Following the vision of the newly redesigned Lamborghini Countach, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X perfectly blends state-of-the-art design and performance-focused movement technology. The 47mm Mineral Composite Fiber (MCF) case design sports a pearlescent Bianco Sidrale finish that is identical to Lamborghini’s paint code for the new Countach chassis. The skeletonized dial layout allows for a closer look at the double flying tourbillons in action, while subtle features like the Countach engine cover make their way into the design. The timepiece is driven by Roger Dubuis’ in-house RD112 mechanical-winding movement, which includes lightweight materials to create the tourbillon cages that ensure 60 hours of power reserve. Adding to the aggressive styling of the Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X, Roger Dubuis includes a Skeleton 3D rubber strap with an ultra-ergonomics design. The white exterior finish and red interior lining are meant to represent the exact specification of Lamborghini’s launch vehicle. The newest release from Roger Dubuis x Lamborghini Squadra Corse is limited to only 8-pieces for the price of $815,000.
Why To Buy
A “why to buy” quickly turned into a “why to own” considering the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Countach DT/X is made specifically to compliment the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. With a limited production of only 8-pieces, this is sure to be a highly-anticipated and sought-after example for the 112 -owners of the $2,640,000 Italian supercar. As the iconic Lamborghini Countach makes its reincarnation into the automotive world, what better way to celebrate the milestone than with a luxury hyper watch from Roger Dubuis.
Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4
The Lamborghini Countach will forever survive as the early-day poster car for most automotive enthusiasts, often being the gateway supercar for collectors all around the world. After a 16-year production life of various specs and trims, Lamborghini took a break from the Countach to develop models like the Diablo, Gallardo, Murcielago, and Aventador. On August 14th, 2021 Automobili Lamborghini shocked the supercar community with the announcement of the new Countach LPI 800-4, a new redesign that perfectly blends classic and modern aspects of the original model. Lamborghini is proud to bring back the Countach alongside its fleet of performance-focused Italian supercars.
It’s no surprise that the new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 features a lightweight body style and more performance to help launch itself into the 21st century. The exterior of the LPI 800-4 pays homage to the sharp edges of the original Countach, making it immediately recognizable and revolutionary at the same time. The powertrain responsible for delivering over 800-horsepower to all four wheels is Lamborghini’s 6.5L V12 paired with a 48V electric motor. A 7-speed electronically-controlled automatic manages the performance output of the hybrid powertrain, while its sophisticated all-wheel-drive system launches the Countach LPI 800-4 from 0-60 in just 2.8-seconds. Opening the famous scissor-style doors will reveal an aggressively modest interior layout, starting with the red genuine leather sport seats and carbon-fiber trim. Along with a newly updated exterior and interior, the Lamborghini Countach receives updated technological features and driving dynamic modes for the first time. While most vintage Lamborghini models require a certain level of driving experience to fully enjoy all it has to offer, the new Countach LPI 800-4 is sure to be a pleasant drive for anyone behind the wheel. The new Lamborghini Countach LPI-800 is best described as a modern take on a classic that holds the performance to write its own chapter.
Why To Buy
The new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 is the best addition to any garage because of its rich heritage as a pioneer for the future of supercars. The unique configuration process of the Countach LPI 800-4 allows each new owner to choose from a list of exclusive trims and heritage colors that were included in the production of the original Countach models, making dream specifications come to life. With a sold-out production limit of 112-chassis, it will appreciate as one of Lamborghini’s most iconic vehicles in history.
