Lamborghini teamed up with Canadian-Dutch bicycle company Cervélo Cycles to create the "ultra-limited edition" (their words) Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition. It wears a livery that you'll recognize from the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and has only Italian-made components as accessories. 

Only 63 examples of the bike will be made. It's available now and carries a price tag of $18,000 (R300,000) — or about $3,000 (R50,000) more than a new Mitsubishi Mirage.

The Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition is an "ultra-limited edition" street bike from Lamborghini and bicycle company Cervélo Cycles.

It wears livery that's a tribute to the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.

That livery is like orange camo, if you wanted to camouflage yourself in a fire.

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ set a Nürburgring Nordschleife record in 2018 of 6:44.97, if you care about that kind of thing.
