Wow. Just…wow. What a spectacular looking watch this is! And that car…truly a stunning beast! In partnership with automotive design and engineering enterprise Italdesign, Roger Dubuis takes the covers off this magnificent eight-piece limited edition of the brand’s Excalibur Spider Single Tourbillon, in a combination of carbon and ceramic sporting the Italian national colours. Founded in 1968 in Moncalieri, Italy, Italdesign has been creating cutting-edge prototype showcars ever since. The launch of the Roger Dubuis model coincides with that of the new, bespoke Italdesign V10 supercar of which only five will be produced under the mark of “Italdesign Automobili Speciali”.
As for the Italdesign supercar, it will have a starting price of more than £1.3 million to as much as £2m by the time it hits the streets depending on individual trim, equipment and performance personalization options. And what a looker it is:
If you’re thinking the model bears a passing resemblance to some of the Lamborghini designs, well, it’s probably due to the two cars share the same designer. Filippo Perini was previously the head of design at Lamborghini and has masterpieces such as the Aventador and Huracán to his credit.
This latest alliance follows hot on the heels of another luxury match made in heaven between Roger Dubuis and iconic Italian tire manufacturer, Pirelli (launched at SIHH 2017).
The eight pieces will be available exclusively in Roger Dubuis boutiques and priced at $169,000.
