BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (December 4, 2018) – Continuing a partnership that has carried for the near-entirety of the team’s six-years history, Scuderia Corsa and Hublot are proud to reveal the debut of the all-new Hublot Ferrari Big Bang personalized timepieces celebrating the first 100th victories of Scuderia Corsa, an exclusive series in a limited run of 25 pieces. The timepiece was unveiled for the first time last night at an intimate dinner in Los Angeles in the presence of Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe and Founder of Scuderia Corsa and Mattioli Auto Group Giacomo Mattioli along with VIP clientele.
Competing in the most iconic races from the 24 Hours of Le Mans, to the Indianapolis 500, Daytona 24HR and beyond, the Team’s debut in 2012 has since been heralded by victories at such events as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 12 Hours of Sebring, 6 Hours of Watkins Glen and with a number of championships ranging from three consecutive IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship titles, multiple titles in the Ferrari Challenge, as well as a title in Pirelli World Challenge competition.
Hublot’s latest edition will feature authentic carbon fiber from the team’s Ferrari 488 GT3 machine. This will serve as the second collaboration between the two marques, having previously enjoyed a successful launch in 2016 of a similar edition that celebrated the team’s historic season that featured multiple championships across several series, a win at Le Mans, and the crowning of the first-ever female champion in IMSA history.
For Giacomo Mattioli, Founder of Scuderia Corsa and Mattioli Auto Group, a renewed partnership between the two iconic companies is one he relishes in.
“It is a privilege to partner with Hublot,” stated Mattioli. “We have enjoyed many successful seasons together, and it is a true honor to celebrate the Team first 100th victories with the new limited-edition Hublot Ferrari Big Bang personalized exclusively for Scuderia Corsa. The natural synergies of innovation, excellence and performance that we share with Hublot is very special and this timepiece is a true testament of it. We are looking forward to many more success together.”
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, shared that “The collaboration between Hublot and Ferrari has proved it is a real success and a hand-in-hand collaboration. It’s an extraordinary fusion of the fine watchmaking craftmanship hold by Hublot and the exceptional Italian industrial achievement hold by Ferrari, and an eternal pursuit for transcendent quality and innovation. We are delighted to personalize the new designed Big Bang Ferrari for the first time, for Scuderia Corsa. It was obvious for us to dedicate this first personalization to Mattioli with who Hublot has a strong and lasting relationship. It’s for all those reasons we put our last innovations in this new Big Bang Ferrari, with a new bezel in carbon disc brake and ceramic.
We wish Scuderia Corsa all the best for the rest of the competition and are proud to be partners.”
