Will they do a Balboni version with a fat white stripe along the middle?

Some guy beat me to the obvious: "What a waste of money. $22,000 of this is for a brand name. Even weight weenies have no reason to break the $10,000 mark on a road bike."

Bmc bike, some redecaled campy wheels and super record? Still 3/4 times the price of the regular bike for some branding of a car only suited for crazy Arabs and rap "singers" with little taste. I'll pass.

It's $32K, AND it's ugly... What a potent marketing ploy! -I'm certain someone will buy it.

A bulk of that is the wireless campy 11 speed. Still obscene.

True. But anyway, as long as 70's racing bikes still look as good as Miura's i've no need for cross-vehicular pollination

I like the matte black and yellow. It's about 3 times as much as I'd pay for it, but I do like it. Still cheaper than an Aventador or Veneno.

Well, you might check to see who makes the wheels for the Lambo (cars, that is!)

Tough to do when the primary version is already only RWD.

The Miura really was the pinnacle. I guess the Countach was iconic in it's day but it's day was like 1972. It rapidly crossed over from icon to cliche.

My uncle's Lamborghini Miura......
He gave me a ride in it about two years ago and it certainly was the most exciting gutteral, raw ride I ever experienced in a vehicle where all the senses were maxxed out by the explosive "mechanical music" from the flat twelve engine right behind our seats, while we blasted past all kinds of "ordinary" cars we encountered on the road that morning he took me out.. If that bike can give the same pleasure to a person, I'd say $30+K would be worth it, but I guess pigs will have to fly first!....

I was more interested in the white stripe to be honest
