Usually, when you talk about brands within the same family doing collaborations and crossovers, that’s lame. When those brands were Ducati and Lamborghini, it stopped being lame and started to be awesome.
Get into the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini. This is a very limited edition of the V4 S (which is already kind of a crazy motorcycle) that takes a lot of its styling cues from also banana Lamborghini Huracan STO. It adds a few other spicier bits to the Streetfighter formula for something really desirable and over-the-top.
Streetfighter V4 S is based on Panigale V4 S, meaning it packs a 200-horsepower 1,103 cc V4 engine, Ohlins electronic suspension, and enough safety electronics to prevent even the most stupid of riders from launching themselves into low Earth orbit. The Lamborghini edition adds a new exhaust under the Akrapovic car, Lamborghini-like alloy wheels, and reworked body panels inspired by the hyper-aggressive Huracan STO style.
The best part about this particular Streetfighter is that it comes from the factory with a dry clutch. If you’re not a fan of Ducati, you might be wondering why it’s great. Basically, it makes the bike objectively worse to ride on the road, because it’s not fun to ride slipped, but made the craziest and craziest sound. It’s like Satan’s own tambourine or washing machine full of car accidents. This is glorious.
It’s also not the first time the two Italian manufacturers of monstrous performance vehicles have teamed up. This is definitely the coolest. Previous collaborations are on 1260 Diavel Lamborghiniwho drew inspiration from Sian.
Ducati will only make 630 units to the public, with another 63 units for current Huracan STO owners who will match their cars. If you want any of these things, be prepared to pay exotic Italian prices for them. The “standard” Lamborghini V4 Streetfighter will retail for $68,000 and if you’re invited to buy one of the 63 specials, expect to pay $83,000.
