The historic association between the fascinating world of vintage cars and Eberhard & Co. continues this year with the Swiss Maison in the capacity of Official Timekeeper, recording the times of the Gran Premio Nuvolari 20th edition.
It is a legendary event, an international rally reserved to wonderful, historical cars, paying tribute to the greatest and most audacious racing driver of all times, Tazio Nuvolari, who won 7 Italian Championships and established 5 international speed records among which a speed of 330.275 Km/h. His extraordinary performances made him a legend and immortalized his name.
The 11-car Eberhard team (7 teams from Classic Team stable, 2 from Germany, 1 from Italy, 1 from Switzerland) was among over 300 historic cars which did battle on a spectacular and exciting track, including the Classic Team_Eberhard from the stable founded by Corrado Corneliani, Ottaviano Checchi and Marco Gandino, recently associated with the Swiss Maison, an exceptional partner for a collaboration combining passion for sport and elegance.
On the occasion of this legendary event, Eberhard & Co. is reconfirming the success of the Tazio Nuvolari Grand Prix Collection, launched last year precisely during the Gran Premio Nuvolari, by officially introducing its new steel limited edition, produced in 999 pieces.
From the cool, gutsy look, rendered all the more original by a striking colour play between white and red, the Maison’s new chronograph retains unaltered the distinctive technical features of its predecessor, the white details of the dial, perfectly matching the white ceramic bezel, illuminated by the brilliance of the selected colour combination. The contrast of colours continues on the strap, with its white background and red stitching. The case-back is tinged with whiten incisions, whilst the outer surface comes alive with its elegant, circular-grained finish, harmoniously reflected in the red tachymeter scale on the flange.
