Automobili Lamborghini and Technics announce the new SL-1200M7B turntable. The SL-1200M7B is a special edition based on the SL-1200MK7/SL-1210MK7 DJ models from the SL-1200 turntable series, which have garnered widespread acclaim and popularity over the years. 

The 60-year history of both Automobili Lamborghini and Technics shares similar values in the two companies’ underlying corporate cultures. Both engage in thorough technological development, using unique ideas to provide customers with unforgettable experiences, and are uncompromising in their approach to manufacturing, pursuing an emotional sound that touches every enthusiast’s heart. 

Sound is another characteristic element of the two brands. With the dynamic emotion provided by the engine sounds of Automobili Lamborghini and the rich audio experience presented by Technics’ audio solutions, both brands have sought to develop sounds that stimulate the customer. This collaboration was born from the commonalities between the brands’ concepts and sound-making initiatives.

Technics for Automobili Lamborghini SL-1200M7B Direct Drive Turntable System functions are based on the SL-1200MK7/SL-1210MK7 models, while the design is inspired by Automobili Lamborghini’s iconic Y-shape pattern. Orange, green and yellow are the colours of the SL-1200M7B, based on the most iconic liveries of the Italian automotive marque’s super sports cars.  

The SL-1200M7B will be available for purchase exclusively through sales channels authorized by Technics and specialized stores. For more information: www.technics.com/technics-x-automobili-lamborghini-sl-1200m7b.html

The product will be available for ordering from May 9, 2024, and will be available from the end of June 2024.

Purchasers of the SL-1200M7B will be treated to an exclusive gift in the form of a vinyl record featuring the powerful engine and driving sounds of six different Lamborghini V12-engine super sports cars, recorded especially for this project: 400GT 2+2, Miura SV, 25th Anniversary Countach, Diablo 6.0 SE, Murciélago LP 640 and Revuelto.

The vinyl itself is a picture disc illustrating the tire of one of the Lamborghini's latest models, the Revuelto.
