Did you grow up with Countach posters in your childhood bedroom, but you’re still a few tax brackets away from buying a Lamborghini? There’s hope, of sorts.
Made-in-Italy standard-bearer Ducati has announced another limited release collaboration with fellow Italian artisanal vehicle manufacturer Lamborghini. The Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini will incorporate styling, livery, and special components inspired by the legendary Lamborghini Huracán STO. The bike will be limited to just 630 examples, plus a further 63 to be called the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti available only to actual Lamborghini owners.
Building on the 2023 Panigale V4 S, the V4 Streetfighter Lamborghini gets specially designed wheels, revised carbon fiber bodywork, and a slightly redesigned underslung titanium Akrapovič exhaust. But at its core, it’s a Streetfighter V4 S. And obviously, it has Huracán STO DNA, where possible.
Special details and badging are everywhere, as you’d expect. Model name and serial number are shown on a metal plate on the tank, with the specific edition number even appearing on the TFT when you fire things up. The forged wheels are inspired by the Huracán STO, with the Lamborghini logo located on the single titanium locking nut.
Carbon fiber bits are also crafted and colored to suit. The front mudguard, bellypan, radiator cover, wings tank cover, and tail are textured just the same as their Bolognese namesake. Adjustable rider footpegs plus brake and clutch levers are billet aluminum, while the heel guards, saddle pad dashboard cover, and ignition switch covers are carbon fiber.
Seat trim color is in Arancio Dac orange, complementing the Verde Citrea green. The number 63 design refers to the year Lamborghini was founded, not the 63 registered Lamborghini owners allowed to buy the Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti. Also, it does not refer to noted MotoGP rider No. 63, Francesco Bagnaia, though he currently races for the Ducati Lenovo team. He’d still probably sign the tank, if asked nicely.
Not pulling out your black card yet? Consider: The Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini features a factory dry clutch, plus it weighs in at 435.4 pounds wet, about 3.5 pounds less than the ordinary Streetfighter V4 S. So you could still win trackday, especially with the provided block-off accessories for the license plates and mirrors. And hey, you get a carbon fiber clutch cover too. Plus, an optional jacket, leathers, and helmet are available to match.
The Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini starts at $68,000 MSRP, with the Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti hitting $83,000 MSRP. An actual Lamborghini Huracán STO is priced at $331,000 new in 2021, about 4.9 times more expensive than its two-wheeled counterpart. And the Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini has a real Lamborghini logo on it. It’s really the most financially responsible Lamborghini, of sorts, you can buy.
Orders are expected to be delivered in May 2023.
