Lamborghini has been racing on the racetrack for years, but now he’s going beyond. After showing us the racetrack as his natural habitat, he is now taking us on a more intimate journey. Romain is a Lamborghini factory driver, a father and a man of many passions and authentic values.
During the opening lap of the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix, Grosjean survived a terrifyingly high-speed impact which saw him trapped in his Haas VF-20 for 28 seconds while an inferno raged.

Back on terra firma, Grosjean has an equally stimulating mode of transport: a Lamborghini Urus Performante . As he says, it’s a family car but one with a serious twist. “It’s just so cool to drive. The Performante sounds amazing, and even if it’s an SUV everyone knows it’s a Lamborghini. And I’ve got space for my kids.”
Lamborghini’s outstanding colour palette presented some problems, however. “My daughter wanted purple or pink. My second son wanted yellow. My eldest son wanted orange, and my wife wanted black. So I said, ‘all right guys, you know what? We’re going to go with green. It’s my car, I decide…”
