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 Huracán Monobalancier (MB)
With a partnership built off performance, Roger Dubuis and Lamborghini represent a special category of luxury timepieces that sport automotive-inspiration. Since the two industry leaders first began developing hyper watches in 2020, the limited-edition collection has grown into an array of styles and variations that take on the same design features as the Lamborghinis rolled off the production line in Italy. Some of the most recognized examples commemorate iconic Lamborghini production models like the Aventador and Countach LPI 800-4. Roger Dubuis x Lamborghini are taking its newest release to the next level by styling its design to match the Huracán GT3 EVO2, a factory racecar designed and developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse based on the Huracán STO. Constructed using unique movements built like Italian V10 engines, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracán serves its purpose as the perfect compliment to the track-inspired Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2.
Limited to Only 88-Pieces
This new Excalibur Spider Huracán configuration makes its debut in appropriate fashion during the iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed. Roger Dubuis takes pride in its involvement as the gathering’s Official Timing Partner, offering the perfect stage to introduce its creation to car and timepiece enthusiasts of all kinds. Roger Dubuis crafts the Excalibur Spider Huracán MB 45mm case, bezel, and crown from pure white Mineral Composite Fibre (MCF), giving the piece a lightweight feel with exceptional strength. The case also features the same touches of red, yellow, and green seen on the Huracán GT3 EVO2’s race livery. The partially skeletonized dial present design features taken directly from the race car, including a honeycomb grille and Italian trim-color hexagonal dashboard that protect the caliber that drives the watch.
In-House RD630 Automatic Movement
While the engine delivering power to the special edition Excalibur Spider isn’t an actual naturally-aspirated V10, its in-house RD630 automatic movement is built with twin barrels and a 360-degree oscillating Huracán rim weight. The 233-piece movement operates the watch’s hours, minutes, central seconds, and date functions. A sapphire backcase beautifully displays a secondary view of the movement through a Huracán GT3 EVO2 wheel, with numbered engravings signifying the special release. Utilizing key design aspects from its supercar muse, Roger Dubuis fits each Excalibur with a multi-color perforated leather strap that uses a quick interchangeable release system. The all-new Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracán White MCF is limited to 88-pieces worldwide and is currently available through an authorized dealer.

Why To Buy
The Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracán Monobalancier is the next perfect watch on your buy list because of its significance within the luxury watch world, combining two notorious brands to create a work of art. While most collaboration examples style themselves to mimic the look of factory production cars, this is the first model to feature a racecar theme from a Lamborghini Squadra Corse vehicle platform. With only 88 individually numbered examples worldwide, the Excalibur Spider Huracán MB adds a sense of exclusivity you won’t find with an everyday watch. Roger Dubuis also prides itself on working directly with owners to customize a piece to match their own spec.
Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2
Automobili Lamborghini’s fleet of supercars embodies Italian luxury and performance, introducing road-legal street cars with the capabilities to put down impressive lap times. The Huracán lineup features an array of variations that showcase the progression of the model and its ongoing desire to generate more power. As the Huracán is no stranger to a race track environment, the Huracán GT3 EVO2 offers the experience of motorsport racing through a factory platform. The GT3 EVO2 is based on Lamborghini’s popular Huracán STO model and fully complies with new FIA 2022 technical regulations.
Full Carbon Fiber Bodywork With A Factory Race Livery
Taking shape as an upgraded version of the STO, the Huracán GT3 EVO2 features a full carbon body designed in collaboration with the specialists at Lamborghini’s Centro Stile. The main focus on Lamborghini’s improvements on the updated generation surrounds advanced aerodynamics, engine intake system, and improved safety. Behind its vibrant green race livery, new splitters, diffusers, and underbody help to enhance its aerodynamic efficiency. The unmistakable hexagonal air-scoop and the rear fin are derived from Huracán STO, contributing to a more efficient intake system and better car balance.
Multifunctional Motorsport Racing Wheel
Being that weight-savings is key to victory in any race setting, the Huracán GT3 EVO2 interior comes stripped from Lamborghini’s factory. The driver-oriented layout includes a one seat setup that uses a lightweight carbon bucket seat to lock the driver into position. All new safety measures implement new additions such as a redesigned roll cage, two new rear pillars, carbon-kevlar side panels, and fixed plexiglas side windows. With what seems to be a vast amount of control buttons that operate specific functions of the GT3 EVO2, the alcantara multifunctional racing wheel acts as the main control hub for the race car. The buttons placed on the steering wheel control over 13 different functions, including everything from drink settings to unique ABS maps. In an environment where comfort isn’t key, the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 stands at the ready for any driver willing to experience its performance.
Modified 5.2L Naturally-Aspirated V10 (640HP/416-FT-LB)
Along with adopting the notorious roof-scoop and rear-wheel-drive system from its STO sibling, the Huracán GT3 EVO2 also features the same naturally-aspirated engine platform. Lamborghini’s popular 5.2L V10 is upgraded with 10-electronically actuated throttle bodies and titanium valves, increasing its power output to 640-horsepower and 416-foot-pound of torque. A quick shifting 7-speed dual-clutch transmission manages all the power put down to the rear wheels. The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 is set to make its official on-track debut at the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours race.
Why To Buy
The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 is a perfect addition to any collection because of its uniqueness as a factory racecar intended for true track use. The limited-product series allows avid Lamborghini collectors and owners the opportunity to experience the full potential of a racecar in its most comfortable motorsport setting.
