Lamborghini, not finished celebrating its 50th anniversary with special models like the Veneno, has subtracted two wheels for the next stage of the party. The BMC Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition Impec is the second go-round of the collaboration between Swiss bicycle maker BMC and the Italian carmaker, both based on linking the carbon-fiber framed Impec to the carbon-fiber bodied Aventador.

Last year's run-of-30 Impecs has become this year's run of 50, each one built to order, and each costing 25,000 euros (about $32,000 US). BMC's special framebuilding technique is graced by a paint job unique to the model, Italian components and the same leather used in that taurean coupe. As with the car, you can order it at your local Lamborghini dealer and take delivery there.

If you're keen, the press release below can tell you what it will take to throw a leg over.

BMC Switzerland Introduces Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec

Exclusive high-end road bike incorporates craftsmanship and detail used in the Lamborghini Aventador dream car.


GRENCHEN, Switzerland (March 7, 2013) - Inspired by the success of the previous impec Lamborghini Edition, BMC Switzerland has created an even more exclusive impec bicycle. The Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec combines high-end Italian components with the Swiss- made impec frame to create a road cycling machine that includes the same precision, detail, and style used in the Lamborghini Aventador dream car.

In the beginning there was a vision:
Race cars and race bikes have a lot in common. Beyond the obvious similarities in shapes and colors, cutting-edge technology, high-performance handling characteristics, and complete integration of engineering, research, and design all combine to deliver world-class performances on road and track. Lamborghini and BMC are two companies known for forging their own identities and breaking new ground, often times with disregard for trends and conventions. They're known for turning novel ideas into functional designs, never hesitating to try innovative technical solutions by thinking outside the design box. And both companies continually search for perfection in their respective industries. In the 1960s, Ferruccio Lamborghini strove to build the ultimate race car. Fifty years later, Swiss entrepreneur, Andy Rihs, turned his vision of the impeccable race bike into reality. For both companies, progress in carbon composite manufacturing has been at the center of their projects and their successes. Lamborghini produces carbon bodywork just next to its headquarters in Sant'Agata, Bologna, while BMC replaced traditional carbon frame laminate processes with a ground-breaking, fully-automatized production process at its headquarters in Grenchen, Switzerland. Both companies simultaneously unveiled their newest facilities and technologies in 2010.

Italian Heritage:
The 50th Anniversary Lamborghini Edition impec combines Italian flair and tradition with modern technology. An exclusive set of Italian-made components equips the impec frame, which is then painstakingly painted to highlight the precise carbon assembly while at the same time linking the complete work to Lamborghini's Aventador dream car. Additional details have been incorporated from the Aventador, including the same leather used by Lamborghini for their seats. This hide makes its way to the impec's cockpit for bar tape and saddle. The color, feel, and look are all authentic and exclusive to the Lamborghini Edition impec.

Order and Delivery:
The Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec is limited to 50 pieces worldwide, and will be produced on a made-to-order basis. Retail price is set at 25,000 Euros. The impec Lamborghini can be ordered exclusively through either the international BMC or Lamborghini dealer network. The bikes will be delivered by the dealer.

        Isn't it funny how republicans become environmentalists all the sudden when they don't like something :)

          Yep. Coal was great until EVs came along and then suddenly EVs became "coal cars" and coal is bad. (Never mind that coal is less than 40% of the grid these days.)

      The paint job is worth about 20 Grand. That build would cost you about 10-13 grand (if you paid straight retail) if it were the normal BMC Impac paint scheme. (about 4K for Electric Campy, 4-5K for the un-goddly expensive Bora wheels, and another 3K for the frame). Trust me, as a bike racer, no one races these things. Something this pricey is for the fat Dentist who wants everything. Your typical local top level riders are racing on bikes that may be touching 4-5 grand. Your tour riders typically are running bikes that may cost retail 8-10K depending on wheel sponsorships, but no team would every buy bikes this expensive.

      Why say that it is the lightest ultralight bike and then not have that number in the main body of the story?

      Stupid, bikes from auto manufactures are stupid. Also, you could get a similar BMC with out the paint job for oh, over 31 grand less.... I guarantee that that bike is not the lightest. Perhaps when they mean lightest they mean "according to uci regulations" because lightest would be THIS bike: http://www.bikerumor.com/2010/09/29/6lb-road-bike-worlds-new-lightest-bicycle-from-fairwheel-bikes/ STUPID.... auto branded bikes are STUPID

        Auto branded anything besides cars are pretty stupid when you really stop and think about it.

        Now THAT'S light! I agree on the branded bikes though. The standard paint from BMC looks much better IMO. For that kind of coin, you could get the BMC, a Di2 Pinarello Dogma and still put 18 grand back in your pocket.

      Free bike and rack with the purchase of a Veneno! Maybe the guy that came up with the "Trek Package" for VW is still loose somewhere in the corporation.

      I like the mountain bike in the back of the Mahindra pickup better.

      Even if I was rich as hell, and as in to riding as Lance Armstrong, I'd still have a pretty hard time justifying spending $32,000 for a bicycle. You can get a nice Mustang GT for that kind of money, and maybe still have a little left for aftermarket modifications.

      Or... you could just buy a normal car plus a nice Cannondale just for the cost of that bike.

        People considering this would never buy a normal car..... think before you type clown

      That\'s about a $9,000 bike with a $23,000 Lambo label on it. Any rich person who buys it is a fool.

      No thank you, i'll take my electric bike that i built for $1,500 over this any day.. faster, more comfortable, more durable, and i can commute on it every day that the weather permits, go longer and over bigger hills, and crappier roads than most road bikes would allow. It's just stupid to spend this kinda money on a regular bike with a special paint job.

        @2 wheeled menace
        I pedal the entire time. I just get where i need to go faster. Don't assume. You know what that makes you and me :)

        So in other words, you're too lazy to pedal yourself.
