Legendary Italian supercar manufacturers Lamborghini are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a limited edition BMC road bike. The Impec Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition will be limited to 50 models and will combine a Swiss-made Impec carbon frameset with premium Italian componentry and an exclusive paint job.

This bike will be one of many celebratory creations for Lamborghini, the largest of which was announced yesterday in the form of the Lamborghini Veneno - a 6.5L V12 supercar with 750hp and a top speed of more than 220mph. The Veneno will be limited to a run of just three examples, with a price tag of £3.1m each! But don't get your wallets out just yet – they've all been sold already.

That makes the special edition BMC's €25,000 price tag sound like a bargain. It's not the first time BMC and Lamborghini have worked together; last year the collaboration produced the Impec Automobili edition. Below is the full spec list of this year's bike, and you can check out our image gallery for a closer look. For more information see the Lamborghini and BMC websites.
