An Ultra-Rare Experimental Lamborghini Superbike is now on Sale: Can Be Yours for £90,000

Modelled according to a classic V12 Lamborghini supercar, the rare 250 km/h superbike was made by Lamborghini as a part of an experiment back in 1989. Dubbed the ‘Design 90’, the models were a result of Lamborghini flirting with the idea of creating a superbike of its own for the mass market. Nevertheless, only six of these demonstration models were ever built and one of these is now on sale for an astounding £90,000.

Back in the late 1980’s, Lamborghini joined forces with French motorcycle designers ‘Boxer’ to create six prototype motorcycles and had further plans to produce 19 more if the idea was deemed popular among its fan base. The two-wheelers were modelled according to the 25th Anniversary edition Lamborghini Countach and its streamlined fibreglass body was inspired by the company’s popular 1988 V12 supercar.

Nevertheless, the bikes did not gain as much traction as the company hoped. As a result, the Design 90 never made its way into mainstream production. However, this also means that the existing six prototypes are a rare gem for the motorcycle enthusiasts.

This particular bike is said to be in an excellent condition, being rarely used during its 29-year-life.
