Video: Lamborghini and Callaway test out new Forged Composite material
The material, which is comprised of turbostatic carbon fibers, is expected to be much stronger and more technologically advanced than metal alloys that are generally used in the automotive and golf industries today.
Recently, the two companies went to the Sandown Racecourse to give the Forged Composite material a little test to see how it can revolutionize future Lamborghini supercars as well as Callaway golf clubs. In this video, renowned professional golfer and Callaway endorser Stuart Appelby tested the brand’s new Diablo Octane driver with the Forged Composite material against – what else – a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4. The challenge here is whether Appleby can hit a golf ball with the Diablo Octane driver faster than it takes the Gallardo to cross the finish line. As an added bonus, the Gallardo was given some time to accelerate before Appleby hit the golf ball, setting off a race between golf ball and supercar.
Check out the video to find out if the Forged Composite-loaded Diablo Octane driver can hit a ball faster than a Gallardo LP560-4.
