Tullio Abbate

Tullio Abbate partner of Bull Days Montecarlo

During the Bull Days Montecarlo, the Memorial to Tullio Abbate will be celebrated, a legend of motor boating who has recently left us.

Tullio Abbate, builder, pilot and entrepreneur, has left an indelible mark on the Italian history of shipbuilding and motor boating. In 1960, at the age of 16, he won the European Powerboat Championship in Cannes as a co-driver. Three years later he won the Centomiglia del Lario for the first time. In his long career he has struck 250 victories and several speed records.

Tullio Abbate’s dream took shape in the Mezzegra shipyards, where he combined the passion for speed inherited from his father and craftsmanship with high technology. It was right here on Lake Como that he opened his shipyard in 1969 where he launched 8500 boats and experimented with the possibilities of fiberglass and modern composite materials, such as carbon fiber. On his extremely light and sharp inboards, he had the honor, as he said with humility, of mounting the powerful multi-fractionated Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche engines.

Abbate boats have conquered numerous stars

The fame of Abbate boats soon went beyond national borders. His creations conquered the champions of speed and sport. He loved to remember among his most famous clients: Michael Schumacher, Nelson Piquet, Gilles Villeneuve, Keke Rosberg, Diego Armando Maradona, Lothar Matthäus, Alain Prost, Didier Pironi, Ayrton Senna, Gianluca Vialli, Roberto Mancini, Giacomo Agostini, Jacky Ickx, Björn Borg, Bruno Giacomelli, Vittorio Emanuele of Savoy, Stefano Casiraghi, Princess Caroline of Monaco, Sylvester Stallone, Madonna, the Marzotto, De Nora and Versace families.

“I believe that success is never accidental and the greater it is, the more difficult it is to obtain it; nobody gives you anything. You have to believe in your work, with a lot of passion and total dedication. There are no amusements or distractions to achieve results. I had to work hard, for decades, uninterrupted, as if I were in a race; stopping even for a moment easily loses memory, memory is getting shorter and people forget quickly “.

Tullio Abbate

 

The icon of boating and the world of motors will be honored with a memorial, which will be held on Sunday 2 August inside the Yacht Club de Monaco. Subsequently the owners of Lamborghini will have the pleasure of trying three Tullio Abbate boats.

Also this year the Bull Days will be a unique event capable of bringing together well-known brands and prominent figures in an exclusive international context.

Lamborghini Sián Roadster

Lamborghini Sián Roadster: unveiled 819hp open-air super hybrid

The Sant’Agata Bolognese company presented the Lamborghini Sián Roadster, the open-top variant of the first hybrid from the manufacturer of the Toro. The new example of the Sián will be a collector’s jewel for a very few lucky ones, in fact it will be produced in a limited edition of 19 units, all already sold.

HYBRID POWER

Extreme and bold in design and performance. Unlike the original coupe, the Lamborghini Sián Roadster stands out for its open-top and hybrid system with a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 (with 785 hp of power). It is also composed of a 48 Volt electrical unit. Only the latter is capable of developing 34 HP. The total power of 819 hp allows it to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 350 km/h.

AD HOC COLORS

The debut color comes from the idea of blending the blue of the sky with the green of the vegetation in a single color. Blu Uranus is the chromatic tone chosen by the Lamborghini Style Center to give this model a color capable of enclosing its character.

The rim finishes are in Gold Electrum, the interiors offer a harmonious mix of details in white, Blue Glauco and Electum Gold in the aluminum elements. The interior also sports several 3D printed elements, which can be customized for customers. For example by engraving the initials of the name.

 

AERODYNAMIC STYLE

The design of the Lamborghini Sián Roadster follows the classic aerodynamic line, increasing its efficiency. The splitters and the front hood direct the airflow through the inlets and outlets on the side and above the rear spoiler.

The rear active cooling fins use an innovative technology. Activation is triggered by the reaction of a series of smart materials to the temperature generated by the exhaust system, causing the rotation of the fins. Another active aerodynamic solution is the rear wing integrated into the profile. The latter is designed to open only while driving with the aim of increasing performance.

The characteristic hexagonal pattern of Lamborghini and the six hexagonal rear lights inspired by the Countach are not missing either. Both are incorporated into the design of the rear section of the car.

Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63

Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63: presented the new motor yacht

A prestigious partnership to create an unrivaled yacht

On June 30, Automobili Lamborghini and The Italian Sea Group presented the new motor yacht of the Tecnomar fleet as a world premiere. This is a limited edition that celebrates Lamborghini’s founding year. It’s called Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63.

Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63: is inspired by several supercars of the house of the Bull

The project, developed by Tecnomar in collaboration with the Lamborghini Style Center, is inspired by the Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37, which not surprisingly is the super sports hybrid with the most futuristic design. Other elements are inspired by the Miura and the Countach, while the bow lights are a tribute to the Terzo Millennio concept car. This partnership was born with the ambitious goal of merging the souls of both brands to give life to an unrivaled yacht.

In every detail it reflects the iconic and unmistakable lines of Lamborghini, from the super sporty silhouette, to the aerodynamic curves to the elegant made in Italy interior. The boat presented by The Italian Sea Group, an international leader in the luxury yachting sector, has the look of a super car even if it belongs to the naval world. It is not a racing car that runs on asphalt, but on water.

Carbon fiber details, super sporty seats, the helm wheel similar to the steering wheel and the “start & stop” button of the Lamborghinis, make this new model a unique nautical and design work.

Innovative solutions and high speed

Inside, too, there are many familiarities with the specimens of the Casa del Toro and with the look of the super cars. An example of this is the helm station that interprets the automotive cockpit in a nautical key, where all the navigation and monitoring systems are integrated. Innovative engineering solutions combined with the unmistakable Italian style offer a pleasant and unforgettable driving experience.

With two MAN V12-2000 engines, the Tecnomar is fast and ultralight. It blasts across the water with its 4,000 horsepower and reaches a top speed of 60 knots.

The first Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 will be ready for the beginning of 2021. Giovanni Costantino, CEO of The Italian Sea Group is certain that the new motor yacht “will become a futuristic icon like the car it is inspired by”.

Bull Days Off: the roadshow that will precede Bull Days every year

This year we have decided to launch a new formula with limited places

A preview event capable of further loading the media coverage of the main edition. This weekend, in fact, the preview of the Bull Days Montecarlo Edition took place in the Carnic Alps. The Montecarlo Edition is an official licensed event of the Principality of Monaco, which will be held on 31 July, 1 and 2 August.

Bull Days Off Carnic Alps

25 Lamborghinis crossed the Carnic Alps for a unique experience immersed in nature. The Bull Days Off led fans of the house of the Bull to discover the most fascinating views between Veneto and Friuli.

On Friday 26 June, during the day, the owners of Lamborghini made use of the services offered by Villa Luppis and then in the evening moved to Motta di Livenza (TV) where they were welcomed by a large audience of enthusiasts. Here, at the Enoteca Ecc.mo restaurant in the old part of Motta, they discovered the perfect combination of meat-based flavors and the witty inclusion of Italian and foreign niche products.

Saturday 27 June we left Villa Luppis to arrive in Tolmezzo in the province of Udine in the heart of Carnia. Its historicity and its majestic landscapes make it the perfect place for an unforgettable roadshow. We climbed up to an altitude of 1427m to immerse ourselves in amazing landscapes such as Sauris, Passo della Pura, Ampezzo, Villa Santina, Ravascletto and many others. There was no lack of stops to taste the typical delicacies of the place. Like at the Tita Piaz Refuge where we regenerated ourselves with a hearty meal of typical Carnic dishes.

On Sunday 28 June the owners had the pleasure of visiting the state-of-the-art plant of the Konner company, a helicopter manufacturer since 2002. After the visit, we moved with the crews to Illegio (UD) to eat the last meal with flavors typical Friulians and say goodbye, to meet again at the next appointment in Montecarlo.

Bull Days Off

An unstoppable escalation

The Bull Days Off – Carnic Alps was sponsored by Italdecor, a leading company in the production of doors and components for furniture, by the Ecc.mo Excellentissimo restaurant and by the helicopter manufacturer Konner.

Year after year, Bull Days has become an unstoppable escalation. From the beauties of the Italian North-East, to those of Siena, Pisa and the Tuscan landscapes known all over the world, up to Montecarlo, in the fabulous French Riviera. In 2018, when we conceived the Bull Days Lamborghini Club, we never imagined that in such a short time it would be able to capture the attention of the international public.

Today it has become a recognized business model that translates into a sense of belonging, professional growth, increased motivation and well-being of a group. Exclusivity, emotions and ambitions form authentic values capable of giving unforgettable experiences that always follow the heart of Lamborghini engines.
