The 50th Anniversary Edition Lamborghini Impec Bike Sells for $32,000
Luxury Auto brands like Lamborghini couldn’t be just satisfied with making the best of powerful cars like the $3.9M most expensive Lamborghini Veneno that commemorates the 50th anniversary of Automobili Lamborghini. They had inkling that their brand should grow wider, and evolve as a lifestyle statement unto itself hence the idea of high-end bicycles. We have previously seen the Limited edition BMC Lamborghini cycle, which retailed for $26,000. This time around, the price tag gets higher and the 50th anniversary Lamborghini Impec goes to its buyers for $32,000. Like most things precious by luxury brands, created for a special occasion, this bicycle is also a limited edition product with a made-to-order availability. Also, the uber-rich who are looking to splash around some cash are advised to order their Impec bikes soon, as there are only 50 editions of them to be made, each delivered by the respective dealers.
Lamborghini has hopefully gotten itself associated with a brand that can match its physical standards of product quality. Ultra-suave appearance, with generous endowments of light bodied carbon fiber components, the Impec bike handles just as easily on any given surface condition. BMC, the producers of this bicycle, did what Lamborghini took up in 2010, where the production process changed to allow for better value in production, without compromising on the quality and traditional characteristics of the product. In fact BMC’s new facility in Switzerland is a completely automated process which has been bought in the last couple of years.
Some of the specifications we would pick up, include Campagnolo Super Record Ti Ultra Torque 50-34 wheels, 3T Ergonova LTD Lamborghini Edition handle bar, Campagnolo Bora Carbon / Ceramic Ultra Two braking system, and Continental Competition 22 Tubular tyres just to name a few. What’s most notable is that this decently sized mechanical locomotive weights just 6.85 kgs on the weighing scale. This perhaps shows why the carbon fiber components make a difference to the overall weight, the benefits of which shall be felt while at high speeds, or uneven surfacing.
So, for those who wish to live the Lamborghini lifestyle, there are a few handy things to be picked up. Beginning with the AV-L001 watches, to the carbon fiber bags, or even a Totino lighter with the Italian supercar’s nomenclature would perhaps match up. To have the kind of cash that one needs to buy one of Lamborghini’s cars, one perhaps wouldn’t mind saving up some more to lead a total lifestyle surrounded by it.
