Haven’t you heard? There’s a bicycle shortage in the United States as people’s discomfort with taking public transportation is met with their need to exercise. But as always, with impeccable timing, Lamborghini is here with a solution — a limited-edition street bike. Yours for merely the price of a cheap new car.

Lamborghini teamed up with Canadian-Dutch bicycle company Cervélo Cycles to create the “ultra-limited edition” (their words) Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition. It wears a livery that you’ll recognise from the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and has only Italian-made components as accessories.

Only 63 examples of the bike will be made. It’s available now and carries a price tag of $US18,000 — or about $US3,000 more than a new Mitsubishi Mirage.

Read on to see more of the Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition.

It wears livery that’s a tribute to the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.

That livery is like orange camo, if you wanted to camouflage yourself in a fire.

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ set a Nürburgring Nordschleife record in 2018 of 6:44.97, if you care about that kind of thing.
