Lamborghini e-bikes: Electric bicycles with Raging Bull name and logo.

Lamborghini is venturing again into the bicycle business collaborating with Italtechnology for e-bikes with the raging bull branding. On at least a couple of occasions, Lamborghini has collaborated with bicycle manufacturers to create high-end racing bikes. Now, the automaker has teamed up with the Italian company  to produce a line of Lamborghini-branded e-bikes.

The announcement was made at the Lamborghini museum in SantAgata Bolognese. The E-Bikes by Italtechnology for Automobili Lamborghini currently consist of two models – a mountain bike and a road bike (pictured here are only the mountain bike). This is, in fact, not the first time Lamborghini has teamed up with bicycle manufacturers to build high-end race bikes.

The electric bicycles, being a product with Lamborghini name and logo, can be customised through the Ad Personam program – which means you can order your electric bicycle in the same colour as a Lamborghini Huracan Performante or others reserved for Lamborghini cars.

Both models, Lamborghini mountain e-bike and road e-bike, feature eight speeds and an anti-theft PIN that locks the rear hub to prevent pedalling. The rear wheel is designed to be removed in five seconds to facilitate transport, and the lithium-ion battery is integrated into the frame. Battery life in Eco mode of the Lamborghini e-bikes, according to the manufacturer, will be around 145 kilometres.

Full details on the specifications of the Lamborghini e-bikes are not known yet, but the manufacturer has said that the bikes have been designed for “customers who want ultimate performance on the road, with a bike that can quickly reach the maximum speed allowed by current regulations.”

Slated to go on sale in May 2018, expect a hefty price tag on these babies – it’s Lamborghini, for Pete’s sake. Lambo e-bikes will only be available at select retailers and online stores.

Both e-bikes were reportedly conceived, designed and built entirely in Italy, are the result of over five years of research, and feature four international patents. Lamborghini’s business I diversified – from farm tractors to 2+2 land missiles to the soon-to-debut Aventador SVJ, they’ve done it all. And now, a go at green mobility, a nice blend of contrasts.

Won the lotto ?, The Lamborghini SUV Is Coming In 2018

Described by company boss Stefano Domenicali as “a super sports car inside an SUV”,

Lamborghini’s controversial re-entry into the SUV market is fast approaching its launch date, but this is our closest look yet at the Urus  and the 600bhp+ SUV looks to be a few steps closer to production than the test mules our spy snappers have previously caught setting hot laps at the Nurburgring racetrack.

we can see that the Lamborghini Urus will retain much of the sharp, angular design language of the original 2012 Beijing show concept and Lambo’s current supercars. With a low, coupe-like roofline and steeply rising shoulders it’s unlikely to be as practical as most SUVs, but it certainly looks distinctive.

Earlier this year bosses told us here at OffTheClothBoff that the Urus will cost from around £180,000 when it goes on sale by the end of the year, and it’s set to produce over 600bhp  and 800Nm of torque from a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8.

Power will be transmitted via a dual-clutch gearbox and four-wheel drive. The Urus will also feature a similar electronic four-wheel-steering system to the new Aventador S, with electronic dampers as well. Further down the line, Lamborghini will offer the SUV with the option of a plug-in hybrid powertrain, too. This will be the Italian brand’s first foray into the world of electrification.

When Lamborghini pulled the sheet off the Aventador SV in Geneva earlier this year, I had a chance to sit down with the company’s President and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann. I was expecting him to play coy about the potential for a Lamborghini SUV, but I was surprised to hear what I interpreted as a bit of frustration with the Volkswagen-Audi parent company in dragging their feet on approving the Urus concept for production. Winkelmann spent a fair bit of time emphasizing how the supercar market is stagnating, and how a third model, especially an SUV, would give them a play in a growing segment
