Hate showing up to group rides and seeing someone else aboard the same bike as you? Breath a sigh of relief. For the tidy sum of 25,000 euro (or about $32,000 US) you can get yourself one of the new BMC Lamborghini limited edition 50th anniversary bikes — and be all but assured you’ll be the only person you know that has one.
So what’s 32 large get you? Lots of Swiss precision, artisan touches, and fine Italian craftsmanship of course. The full-carbon BMC impec frame is dressed with a Campagnolo 11-speed Super Record EPS gruppo, Bora Carbon Ultra Two tubular wheels, and a slew of other high-zoot lightweight components that keep total weight at 15 pounds for a medium-sized frame. On top of that, the saddle and bar tape are made from the same supple leather used on Lamborghini car seats.
The frame and all components are also painstakingly painted in custom Lamborghini yellow, linking the bike to Lamborghini’s Aventador dream car, which starts at just a shade under $400,000, making the bike a bargain by comparison. Just know that they are only making 50 of these bikes, which incidentally cost about $10,000 more than the new Subaru XV Crosstrek.
Each bike will be produced on a made-to-order basis, and orders can be placed through either the international BMC or Lamborghini dealer network. Here’s the complete spec:
