BMC Offers Aventador Impec for Lamborghini’s 50th, Priced Slightly Less Than Car
No doubt targeted to someone who can actually afford a Lamborghini, BMC has introduced a very special 50th Anniversary Edition Impec to celebrate the occasion. While the bike is certainly much less than an actual Lambo, the stratospheric 25,000 Euro ($32,582 at the current rate of exchange) price tag makes the Factor/Aston Martin One77 bike look like a bargain. But, the point of limited editions is to be, well, limited and the 50 made to order Lamborghini edition Impecs certainly check that box.
Recently, also to celebrate their 50th anniversary, Lamborghini unveiled a one off, carbon monocoque version of the Aventador dubbed the Venenos automobile. The Venenos happens to be the fastest and most powerful Lambo ever built, and also the most expensive car Lamborghini has ever made at an even more astounding $3.9 million. There are only 3 Venenos that will be made, and they’re already spoken for – however, you might have a chance of getting the BMC if you have the coin. At first glance drawing parallels between super cars and road bikes may be a stretch, but there is clearly some similarities in how carbon fiber is used in their construction to push them to the limits of weight and performance which is at the core of both BMC and Lamborghini. Honestly, we’re a bit surprised that this special edition is coming from a Swiss company, rather than an Italian one – though Ferarri bikes have already been done through Colnago and you know how well Ferarri and Lamborghini get along.
Curious what over $32k gets you? Read on to find out.
While the frame is unapologetically Swiss, the component group is all Italian. Campagnolo Super Record EPS is certainly where some of that price tag comes from, along with Campy Bora Carbon Tubular wheels. Of course there is the custom Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Aventador Yellow Paint job that will leave you in tears the first time you scuff the finish. Which begs the question: would you ride a bike like this? Or would you display it in your garage – next to your Aventador of course.
In addition to the paint, the same leather that is used for the Aventador’s seats has been incorporated in to a custom Fizik Arione 00 Lamborghini Edtion saddle and matching bar tape. Don’t expect to find replacements in a shop near you. As mentioned, each of the 50 Lambo Edition BMCs will be made to order with option for gearing, handlebar width, stem length, and a choice of a race or performance fit frame. Interested? Bicycles can be purchased through either international BMC or Lamborghini dealers, with the final bike delivered to the dealer.
