Segway Ninebot has partnered with Lamborghini to create a miniature Lambo race car in the form of a go-kart: the Ninebot GoKart Pro Lamborghini Edition.
The Lamborghini GoKart sits on a Ninebot miniature two-wheel electric scooter that can be removed from the base of the tiny racer and used independently. Despite this scooter base the $US1,474 go-kart has “classic Lamborghini elements,” whether it be the iconic yellow paint or the race car-esque rear wing, according to Xiaomi, the China-based online market that debuted the go-kart.
In terms of its drive capabilities, the go-kart has several aspects included specifically for drifting and racing, such as custom rear tires and four different driving modes that can be selected in its app. To complete the Lamborghini-like feel, the go-kart is also equipped with four speakers that can either play music with its Bluetooth capabilities or audio that mimics the sound of a real engine.
The little Lambo had a limited release and sold out after orders opened on Xiaomi in August. Now, Segway Ninebot is considering bringing the GoKart to the US and Europe.
The GoKart has a metal Lamborghini label and emblem. It also comes with its own chassis number plate.
It also has Lamborghini’s classic bright yellow colour and exclusive components made by the Italian automaker.
The go-kart’s base consists of a steel frame that can hold up to 220.5 pounds.
According to Xiaomi, the body silhouette was inspired by Lamborghini, including the multi-layered front lip, which was created to help cushion any potential impact.
The sides also have anti-collision barriers for increased safety.
Its tail was designed to be aerodynamic for a sports car feel and a better, more stable drive through higher speeds, according to Xiaomi.
The four-wheeler can achieve top speeds of 24.9 miles-per-hour and chug along 62 laps on a 400-metre, about 1,312.3-foot, racetrack.
At night, the track can be lit up with the go-kart’s headlights, which consist of “ice lake blue” LED lights.
This is all powered by the go-kart’s 432-watt hour battery pack that’s also equipped with four air ducts.
The little Lamborghini’s bucket chair and non-slip steering wheel keep the driver stable even when cornering, according to its maker.
The rear tires are custom made for drifting capabilities, while the front tires are high-grip for safer cornering.
Aspects of the go-kart can be adjusted in-app to aid in these drifting capabilities.
The app also allows the driver to select between four driving modes: safe, novice, sport, and track, all at varying miles-per-hour capabilities.
The unit is foldable, allowing it to fit into a car trunk, according to its maker.
