There are very few brands more outrageous in their own categories as Ducati and Lamborghini. Both have such a commitment to design and a passion for “la machina” any collaboration is always going to be an interesting one.

Ducati Diavel Lamborghini Sian

Lamborghini’s extreme Siàn FKP 37 supercar is a result of the Italian supercar maker pushing the envelope with their own brand and it was the inspiration for this Diavel limited edition, Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini with just 630 examples of the bike to be made.

Using the Diavel 1260 S as a base, the Lamborghini edition takes thing up a notch. The most obvious change is the newly designed lightweight forged wheels in the same colour (Electrum Gold) as the Lamborghini Siàn’s.

The use of carbon fibre is found throughout the Diavel and mirrors the type of materials found on the Lamborghini supercar. The intakes and radiator covers, silencer cover, spoiler, central tank cover, seat cover, front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover and headlight frame are all made of carbon fibre.

The Gea Green colour is also unique to this Diavel and is the result of Centro Stile Ducati and the Centro Stile Lamborghini’s collaboration. The paint is exactly the same as used on the Siàn FKP 37 contrasted against those Electrum Gold rims, frame, and undertray. Fear not traditionalists, the Brembo brake callipers are still Ducati red.

Lamborghini’s “Y” motif is found on the seat detailing while the hexagon design attribute is reflected in the exhaust design.

Why 630 models, and why the number 63 emblazoned on the side on the tank? Ducati’s answer is a little arbitrary but essentially the company was founded in 1963, and taking the “63” and multiplying by 10, we arrive at 630. Alrighty then…

Price: $48,600 AUD ($$31,995 USD / ££27,795 GBP)
