Lamborghini Squadra Corse and Roger Dubuis showcased their resolutely future-driven approach by simultaneously unveiling an amazing hypercar and the hyperwatch inspired by their adrenaline-fuelled partnership. Lamborghini’s freshly evolved SCV12 is the first limited-edition V12 engine-based hypercar for track only, specially boosted for Super Trofeo races and the most powerful ever made by Lamborghini. It has the capacity to exceed 830 hp thanks to aerodynamic supercharging at high speed, along with higher downforce levels than a GT3 car and unprecedented aerodynamic efficiency. In creating the new Excalibur Essenza SCV12, Roger Dubuis has likewise evolved its Duotor, stripping it down to essentials to enhance performance, while harmonising the design codes shared by the timepiece and the fearsome speed machine. Freed from its upper bridge and reworked in skeleton flying mode shaped like the wheel-rim of the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12, the barrel can be viewed from the top as if one were peering through a transparent supercar hood. The strut bars on the top of the calibre remain a signature feature of Excalibur Lamborghini-inspired models.
Like Lamborghini, which is renowned for customised supercars based on its famous “Ad personam” programme, Roger Dubuis aficionados can enjoy the same level of service through the exclusive “Rarities” programme offered by the Geneva-based Manufacture. The ultimate expression of individual creativity, this concept takes the term “bespoke” into a whole new dimension of hyper personalisation. It will enable each lucky owner to enjoy the thrill of co-creating and owning a truly one-of-a-kind version of the Excalibur Essenza SCV12.
