Born from a partnership of Italian brands, the new Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition is the road bike that will haunt your dreams.
When you’re in the market for a new street bike, there are a number of factors that play to your choice. There’s the style of course – nobody wants to ride around on a girl’s bike with a wicker basket – and the materials used in its construction, with weight always a factor. In addition, online reviews, word of mouth, and the silent nods of your local bike mechanic are all important considerations. Of course, you could just go by the brand name, in which case we have a sure winner for you.
Introducing the Lamborghini bicycle, the two-wheel wet dream of those who covet the raging bull but don’t want to fork out for one of their sports cars. The result of a collaboration between Automobili Lamborghini and Cervélo Cycles, the Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition is a limited-edition version of the high-performance Cervélo R5 sports model and boasts a livery dedicated to the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ – the car that in 2018 set the record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit – and only Italian-made components.
In the same way that the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ raised the performance benchmark in the road vehicle segment, the Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition is created to tackle the steepest uphill and downhill tracks of the Italian Dolomite Alps.
Celebrating the year the Sant’Agata Bolognese company was founded, only 63 units of the Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition will be produced, with each bike featuring a Campagnolo Super Record EPS mechanical assembly, Campagnolo Bora One wheels, Deda Elementi stem, Vittoria Corsa Pro tires, and Fizik Aliante saddle.
All that for just US$18,000.
