Lamborghini and Babolat collaborate in padel racquet project

London, 09 April 2024, (Oilandgaspress): – Automobili Lamborghini and Babolat announce a collaboration combining their technological and industrial expertise to produce exclusive padel racquets. The prototype of the first BL001 model, to be made in a very limited series of just 50 units within Lamborghini’s factory facilities, was presented last Saturday during the Lamborghini Arena at the Imola Circuit, in the presence of Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, and Éric Babolat, CEO of Babolat. The Babolat collaboration marks one of the few occasions Automobili Lamborghini will manufacture sports equipment, outside of its core automotive production.
Two further racquet collections, BL002 and BL003, will be developed for distribution in upcoming years. At the heart of the project is the fusion of Babolat’s mastery of racquet technology and the game, and Automobili Lamborghini’s expertise in carbon fiber manufacturing processes and design.

The all-new unisex BL001 racquet will be available in five Lamborghini colors, Giallo Auge, Verde Viper, Arancio Livrea, Viola Pasifae, Verde Gea, manufactured in Automobili Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese factory in its specialist carbon fiber parts production facility. The very limited collectors’-edition racquet is designed with the tools, processes and materials used in the production of the Italian manufacturer’s super sports cars: while Babolat already uses carbon materials in the production of its padel racquets, the BL001 will benefit from Automobili Lamborghini’s unrivalled carbon fiber expertise in automotive production.
