While just 630 regular models will be made, a further 63 ‘Speciale Clienti’ versions will reserved for special Lamborghini customers.

Those 63 will be made to perfectly match their owners’ STOs, with identical body colors, rims, seat upholstery, and brake caliper finishes.

As for the other 630 examples, they’ll be finished in the colors you see here – Verde Citrea with Arancio Dac highlights, one of the STO’s exclusive color combos.

Further helping it look the part, the wheels are designed to replicate those on the STO as well, and even have identical centre-locks to those on the Huracan.

Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini specifications

Under the skin, the Streetfigher V4 Lamborghini is based on the 2023 Panigale V4 S.

That means it’s packing a 1103cc V4 engine making 208hp (155kW) – a massive amount for a 197.5kg (435lb) bike.

The ‘Desmosedici Stradale’ engine, as it’s known, draws upon the brand‘s MotoGP experience, with the cylinder head and dry clutch setup being derived from its racing bikes.

There are components from just about every big brand name out there on this bike as well.

That includes its Brembo brakes, Öhlins suspension, and Akrapovič exhaust.

And of course, plenty of lightweight materials including aluminum and carbon are used in its construction.

So that you look the part when you’re riding it, Ducati will also offer buyers a set of matching leathers.

And yes, for buyers of the Speciale Clienti models, they’ll be able to customize theirs to match the unique specification of their bike and car.

Pricing for the standard Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini will start at an eye-watering $68,000 – that’s a lot for a bike.

As for the 63 special models, expect them to cost around $83,000 if you’re invited to buy one.

But next to the $327,838 Huracan STO it’ll be parked next to in your garage, it’s a comparatively small price to pay.

Deliveries will start in April 2023.
