Who's got some money to burn???

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Just found this on BMC's website. Man, if I had only won the mega-millions



Only 20,000 euros, who's in for one?

I assume the OP is referring to the IMPEC LAMBORGHINI bike.

Isn't it sacrilege to spec Shimano on this italian-built Lamborghini superbike? (regardless of how you feel about Shimano in general...)

Silly.
It doesn't even have a hint of Lamborghini design in it ... just the logo.
Why pay 10.000 for a logo?

Why don't you see if they will do a group buy? Maybe get the price down to 19,500.

I'm completely underwhelmed with that BMC. And whoever came up with that paint job should be fired.
