Unlike the Lamborghini cigarettes in South Korea, this is a collaboration between Swiss bike maker BMC and the real Lamborghini car company. The BMC impec Lamgorghini Edition is a version of the BMC's impec bicycle, further developed with Lamborghini's carbon-fiber experts and assembled using some automotive build techniques. It's set off by a suede Lamborghini saddle and suede handlebar tape, as well as an Aventador-matching Argos Orange downtube.

Only 30 will be offered for sale, and you'll need to have €20,000 ($26,172 U.S.) handy when you get to the cash register. Still with us? Then you can purchase it at your local Lamborghini dealer or a BMC bike retailer, and it's on display now at Milan's Brian&Barry boutique if you want to kick the tires. Softly.

      A carbon fiber race bike costs $2,617.20. Painting the tube orange and putting a logo on it brings the cost to $26,172.00. I'm sorry, but $26k for a bike you still have to pedal?

      Carbon fiber and "automotive building techniques" aside, please tell me why this is worth more than $26,000....

      1. Release the actual Impec first. This bike is the equivalent of Fisker in the bike world. Delayed for years, with only a handful out in the wild. Borderline vaporware. 2. What's the point of copying specialized and their mclaren deal? This adds no appeal to the bike.

      That's not the downtube, that's the seat tube. The downtube on a bicycle is the bottom tube that goes from the stem to the bottom bracket. Nice bike either way though.

      Something only people like Mitt Romney would be interested in considering the fact that he already own a $12,000 bicycle.

      McLaren and Specialized weren't the first to do this. Colnago and Ferrari have been collaborating on special editions of bikes for years (though usually just for a paint color, admittedly). However, if you reach back in history, bicycle innovations have trickled down into the auto industry forever (pneumatic tires and the tensioned spoke wheel to name a couple...beyond the car companies themselves). Also, to the writer, that's a seattube, not a downtube that's orange.

      Nice bike with a beyond laughable price tag. You can keep it.

      Not a fan of this bike as the lugs are ugly and add weight (BMC conceded that this bike wasn't built to be the lightest possible; they wanted a complete bike to be right at the 15.0-lb UCI weight minimum). Plus even the non-Lambo edition is a bad value. But one thing Autoblog failed to mention is that this is the only carbon bicycle in the world made entirely by robots. Which clearly did nothing to reduce the price!

      Half of the bikes at Walmart have disc brakes now. The Lamborghini bike? na.

        Nothing screams "I'm clueless about bicycles" quite like that statement. Well done.

      What kind of a**hole would buy this bike? Oh right, the same kind of a**hole who would buy a Lamborghini.

      Without that Lamborghini MurciƩlago in the background, I would have not thought a bike can cost $26k USD.

      The worst part is that if you ride it chicks will still think you're some kind of treehugger hipster spaz with a job at Starbucks.
