Working out isn’t typically a luxurious experience. It’s gritty, sweaty, and for the most part, hard work. But Automobili Lamborghini has sought to take the style factor up a notch in its partnership with Cervelo Cycles, for which the two brands present an ultra-limited edition street bicycle: the Cervelo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition. And for approximately SGD25,000, it can be yours! It may well be one of the most expensive bicycles on the market, but then again, it’s one way to get your hands on a Lamborghini without laying out for one of the Italian carmaker’s sports cars.
And while the Cervelo R5 bicycle is sleek – it comes in an orange, black and white camouflage livery, as inspired by the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ that set the record on the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit – this isn’t just about aesthetics. In the same way that the Aventador raised the performance benchmark in the road vehicle segment, the Cervelo R5 is created to tackle the steepest uphill and downhill tracks of the Italian Dolomite Alps, and comes replete with easy handling and behaviour. The bicycle is completed by a Campagnolo Super Record EPS mechanical assembly, Campagnolo Bora One wheels, Deda Elementi stem, Vittoria Corsa Pro tires and Fizik Aliante saddle.
Only 63 units of the bicycle have been produced (Lamborghini was founded in Sant’Agata in 1963), making this collaboration extremely rare.
