With households across America still decking their halls with jack-o-lanters and all manner of goolish decorations, it may be a tad soon to start thinking about the winter holiday season. But for Lamborghini, Christmas arrives early this year with the launch of the hardcore Balboni edition Gallardo. And to commemorate, Lambo's putting the Santa in Sant'Agata Bolognese with a new collection of holiday ornaments and stocking-stuffers.
Just as it has in years past, Lamborghini has released a new set of tree ornaments, decorative candles, calendars and other paraphernalia, this year carrying the Balboni theme in honor of its legendary test driver and the driver-focused LP550-2 that bears his name. Along with the latest collection of Raging Bull-emblazoned sportswear, the holiday wares are available directly from the Lamborghini Store, with details enumerated in the press release after the jump like so many maids a-milking and swans a-swimming (while you're enjoying that, Jonny and I will be waiting for the release of the Reventon dreidel.)
Be blue this Christmas with Lamborghini
Sant'Agata Bolognese, October 19th 2009 - To celebrate Christmas Lamborghini-style, the Italian super sports car manufacturer has produced a range of limited edition gift-boxed candles and ceramic baubles, inspired by its Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni.
The ceramic baubles in box-sets of three are finished in contrasting Blue Caelum and White Monocerus, two of eight colours in which the Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni, a model dedicated to the legendary Lamborghini test driver, was launched this
A set of slow-burning candles in the same special colours is also available. With the Lamborghini shield imprinted on one side, the candles are as suitable for year-round use as they are for the holiday season. Lamborghini's Christmas collection also includes 2010 wall and desk calendars.
An extensive range of clothing completes the Winter 2009/2010 Collezione, with the new Lamborghini Future and History series: from men's Merino Bombers and long-sleeved Polos and T-shirts to ladies' Winter Trench Coats, Diagonal Sweatshirts and Faux Fur Hooded Jackets, it is easy to keep stylishly warm this Christmas.
Finally, for fans of Lamborghini's recently launched 1.1m euro Reventón Roadster, the established Tricolore series completes the collection: inspired by the aeronautic design influences of the Reventón, men's Tricolore Fleece Sweatshirts and Long-Sleeved Polos might ease the disappointment of not finding the real car under the Christmas tree.
