Inspired by the success of the previous impec Lamborghini Edition, BMC Switzerland has created an even more exclusive impec bicycle. The Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec combines high-end Italian components with the Swiss- made impec frame to create a road cycling machine that includes the same precision, detail, and style used in the Lamborghini Aventador dream car.
In the beginning there was a vision:
Race cars and race bikes have a lot in common. Beyond the obvious similarities in shapes and colors, cutting-edge technology, high-performance handling characteristics, and complete integration of engineering, research, and design all combine to deliver world-class performances on road and track. Lamborghini and BMC are two companies known for forging their own identities and breaking new ground, often times with disregard for trends and conventions. They’re known for turning novel ideas into functional designs, never hesitating to try innovative technical solutions by thinking outside the design box. And both companies continually search for perfection in their respective industries. In the 1960s, Ferruccio Lamborghini strove to build the ultimate race car. Fifty years later, Swiss entrepreneur, Andy Rihs, turned his vision of the impeccable race bike into reality. For both companies, progress in carbon composite manufacturing has been at the center of their projects and their successes. Lamborghini produces carbon bodywork just next to its headquarters in Sant’Agata, Bologna, while BMC replaced traditional carbon frame laminate processes with a ground-breaking, fully-automatized production process at its headquarters in Grenchen, Switzerland. Both companies simultaneously unveiled their newest facilities and technologies in 2010.
