Blancpain & Lamborghini's Partnership

Typically when you speak to a watch collector it's not long before you learn that they are also into cars. That correlation is not lost on watchmaking firms. This coming weekend I will be attending a local Italian auto show. Along with checking out some of the world's finest automobiles, I'll also be partaking in one of my favorite hobbies; watch spotting. So in the spirit of that I wanted to share a little promotional film put together for the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo, a series of races that tour some of Europe's legendary race tracks. It was set out to be the world's fastest one-make series of races. Blancpain sponsors the event while Lamborghini provides a racing version of their Gallardo LP560-4 along with technical support of the entire event. Originally conceived in 2008 the popular tour is currently making the rounds again this year.

Blancpain also created a limited edition [300 pieces] chronograph to celebrate the partnership. The watch is appropriately called the "Super Trofeo Chronograph" [pictured below].

Now if we could only get them to bring the series to the states...
