Armin Strom Engines Are Ready
May 23, 2015
ARMIN STROM Team 78’s engines are ready! On Sunday morning, May 24, owner Serge Michel and director Claude Greisler will start the engine on their special Tech Art Porsche Turbo as the multi-continental Gumball 3000 car rally hits the streets in Stockholm.
The car is not their only big engine. Michel and Greisler will track their driving time via the new ARMIN STROM Skeleton Pure Team 78, a cool variation of their Skeleton Pure which they created especially for the rally.
Both machines feature a sleek black exterior with neon lime accents. The manual-wind, Calibre ARM09-S timepiece is black PVD-coated stainless steel with an 8-day power reserve. The stitching on its carbon strap is also bright lime.
Their Tech Art GP Street R Cabriolet, which is based on a Porsche 997 Turbo, is blazoned with ARMIN STROM Team 78 and Gumball 3000 logos. The number 78 was chosen because it’s the year both men, who will split driving duties, were born.
Be sure to follow the progress of ARMIN STROM Team 78 from Stockholm to Amsterdam and San Francisco to Las Vegas on Facebook.
