Lamborghini on Two Wheels (14 pics)

Of the most famous giants, perhaps, the only BMW happy with their creations the two-wheel fans transport. In turn, Audi, which owns the eminent Italian brand Lamborghini, flatly refuses to produce anything other than bicycles, pens, bags, safes and coffee makers. Oh yes, they More cars are doing.

Although officially there is no motorcycle manufactured by Lamborghini, Alex Papas, an expert in customized motorcycles of all kinds is the creator of this spectacular specimen.

This creation of popes, and prepared based on a chopper, has a strong structure, as well as their fenders, painted in the familiar yellow pearl, the Lamborghini Gallardo. As if there were any doubt about it, next to the engine has a tab with Italian logo. Motor has an S & S Super Sidewinder with a six gears and a bearing customizable thanks to the adjustable suspension. This gem is priced at $ 75,000.

For example, a bike from Lamborghini. Italians have always been leaders in the continental motoprome, so It is logical that car company can easily create something interesting and on two wheels. However, Lambotsykl was built in Toulouse, Frantsyya by Boxer Bikes. Sportbike with a sound aerodynamics, different components (liter engine from Kawasaki) and design from the Countach in Since its debut in 1986, was worth twice the price of the coolest-cycles of the time. But this only reinforces the image of bike-evaluation with 130 hp 170 kilogram. Total was created 5 or 6 copies, which are now estimated at $ 70 thousand each!

So, this does not prevent the designers dream. Especially when it's designers with the name, but not sometimes a third-sober students. It is the first and inhabit the world-famous studio Bertone. "The ringleaders" of this company - Ch. designer Marcello Gandini and chief engineer Flavio Adriani very interested in the idea of creating a two-wheeled "Lambo", and after some time working in the program 3D Max, showed the world his creation with a straightforward name LamboBiker.

As pictured, Bike is created under the influence of forms of world famous Miura (stylish smooth lines and curves), as well as ideas Franco Sbarro (axle-free wheel). Unlike the bike Hubless Monster, the rear wheel is operated without the aid of the chain. If Amen Design and Engineering put on your motorcycle chain that stretched across the rim of the rear wheel, and covered decorative panels, the version of the Bertone is radically different. The fact that the rear-wheel drive in this bike - a system of gear shafts. That is, the entire width of the interior of the rear wheels bear cutters and drive - 2 small shaft, which, in turn, the excavation site. This scheme is distantly recalls the clock mechanism. Of course, the Italians in the design of strong (probably why the Germans and allowed them to draw a body, and the technical part of the deal for yourself).

But it raises a question for - why the chopper? Lamborghini - first of all sports, power, and then to "Gran Turismo". This point of view priderzhyvaetsya Romanian designer (already sounds funny) Laurentiu Trifescu. He created his vision of sportbike from "bull" - Lamborghini V4 1000 Caramelo. Judging the name implies, it is assumed V4 engine placement volume in thousand cubic meters. In the same variant clearly seen through Lamborghini Gallardo, coupled with MV Agusta F4. Unfortunately, nodescribe the technical designer is not provided.

Which one is better, "Italian" and "Romanians" - judge for yourself, but to compare the custom chopper and sportbike - anyway, that cheese and ... Coca-Cola. They're both great! Known only 2 things: 1) in Romania is there are designers 2) in the series, none of them will not go ... Although, in this world everything is possible.
