Yum China, in collaboration with the Italian coffee manufacturer Lavazza, has partnered with super-sports car producer Automobili Lamborghini to introduce a co-branded drink in China.

The partnership will feature a limited-time co-branded drink, LAVAZZA Shakerato, set to launch on 18 June 2024.

The drink combines Lavazza’s coffee expertise with the spirit of Automobili Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse.

The LAVAZZA Shakerato, a creative twist on the classic Italian shaken iced coffee, will be available in a Lamborghini-themed shaker cup.

Customers will be able to select three different flavours of the espresso-based beverage, which is served with ice.

The collaboration also features a co-branded smartphone accessory that will be available to customers.
