Only 70 of the Oltre XR Gimondi 70 limited edition bikes will be made, and the retail price has been pegged at €13,490 (£10,820/$17,450).
Built up with Campagnolo’s Super Record EPS electronic group, the Oltre XR Gimondi 70 features a custom paint job, including a down tube filled with Gimondi’s race exploits, and comes with a full complement of special Bianchi swag.
Including with each of the bikes are:
- a semi-rigid bike bag with the Gimondi 70 logo
- a bike cover with the Gimondi 70 logo
- a certificate signed by Felice Gimondi
- a special Santini cycling kit (bib shorts and jersey) by Santini, with the same graphics and colors used by Felice Gimondi's Bianchi team in the ’70s
- a Bianchi/Gimondi book
Other special touches on the bike include the appropriate color stripes in deference to Gimondi’s wins at the Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España and the World Championships. Bianchi also used its late ’60s/early ’70s logo on the bike.
