Texas Running of the Bulls is a four day event hosted by the Lamborghini Club of Texas. Proceeds from the event benefit The 100 Club, an organization that financially rescues the dependents of firefighters and law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty by paying their debts and providing an education for their children. Every year the club tries to make it out to a race track for some apex hitting fun. This year was no exception, with a day at Circuit of the Americas on the schedule.
People from all over come to the event, with some owners shipping their cars to the event. Including the famed Batventador, that was shipped all the way from sunny Southern California. The majority of the group was from the Texas area. The event started in Houston for a night of drinks and hellos. The next afternoon we all formed a convoy and drove to Austin, Texas in one brightly colored Italian train. Saturday was track day at COTA followed by the banquet. Sunday was Escotico Italiano, a celebration of exotic Italian automobiles at one of the most beautiful places in the Texas hill country. The Oasis on Lake Travis. There are many different types of car enthusiasts, and after spending time with the Lamborghini crowd it’s easy to see that they are a very dedicated bunch. A couple of the owners brought more than one of their Lamborghini’s to the event. To a car guy, there’s almost nothing sweeter than seeing a car shoot down the front straight of Circuit of the Americas, it’s just a plus when that particular car is an Aventador with a really nice exhaust. Watch the video below to see the Batventador scream down the front straight of COTA.
Another owner bought a black Gallardo that previously had a competitors film installed. He wasn’t happy with the texture and look of the older film, so when we told him we were doing installs on-site he jumped at the chance! We removed the old film from his hood and replaced it with XPEL ULTIMATE. XPEL Austin installer Chris Evenson did the install on-site, in garage 1 at Circuit of the Americas, a cool experience in itself.
XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra
XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it’s clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating.
Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving.
Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties
Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source.
Not all Patterns are created equal
At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern you’ll have less to worry about, since the installer will not be trimming the film on your vehicle. Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished.
Contrary to what some may believe it’s possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. With XPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible, for example around the parking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision.
You can pick and choose your coverage options.
