limited editon r5
Wednesday 9th September 2020
Our wish list is getting a bit silly now, it's as long as our weekly food shop and lil NITP eats a lot! We fell in love with Cervelo bikes since their Test Team days (we actually had the kit!) and they just churn out some gorgeous looking bikes. They've teamed up with another head turner, Lamborghini, and have created quite a striking camouflage design but it'll set you back a pretty penny...
Cervélo has teamed up with Automobili Lamborghini on an ultra-limited edition R5, the high-performance road bike featuring the paint scheme from the Aventador SVJ's famed Nürburgring lap record. Dressed in an all-Italian suite of components, this R5 goes beyond the tricolore in showing its devotion to Italian luxury.
The Aventador SVJ's record-breaking 6:44.97 trip around the Nürburgring created a new benchmark for road car performance, and cemented it at the top of its class. Cervélo pays homage to this feat with its lauded R5 model. The R5, designed to tackle the steepest climbs and descents of the Italian Dolomites, is a kindred spirit to the Aventador SVJ—fast by any measure, but set apart by its handling and poise.
The Cervélo limited edition R5 will celebrate Automobili Lamborghini's founding year with the production of 63 bikes, highlighting the special combination and the excellence of the two brands. The R5 limited edition road bike will be completed thanks to a build kit featuring Campagnolo's Super Record EPS gruppo, Campagnolo Bora One wheels, Deda Elementi Stem, Vittoria Corsa Pro tires, and a Fizik Aliante saddle.
Retail price is $18,000 USD, and may be ordered through an official Cervélo retailer or distributor.
