Ducati makes some really good-looking motorcycles. Take the Panigale V4 for example. It oozes beauty. Similarly, its naked sibling, the Streetfighter V4 doesn’t fall behind. While it wouldn’t be incorrect to say that these models are a piece of art, there is a Streetfighter V4 out there that is literally a work of art.
Called the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti, it is a work of art created by the talent of Paolo Troilo as a follow-up to “Minotauro”, a painting by the artist of 2021 on the bodywork of a Lamborghini Huracan EVO.
Paolo Troilo (Taranto, 1972) is an Italian artist known for his unique technique of hyper-realistic finger painting, one-of-a-kind in the world. “Centauro” is painted using this technique in the figurative representation of the arms of a man bent in acceleration that emerge on the two sides of the tank, and it is completed with other tools in the abstract geometric decomposition that characterizes the remaining parts of the motorcycle.
This work combines myth and reality, embodying a superhuman strength that merges with the rationality enhanced by the shapes and volumes of the Streetfighter V4, thus transmitting power and a boundless sense of confidence in one’s abilities.
The idea of “Art of Creating Myths” was born in September 2022 at the same time as the world première of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, the second chapter of the collaboration between the two Companies after the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini. With Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini a motorcycle capable of combining the values of sportiness, exclusivity and fascination is presented in a limited and numbered edition of 630 examples characterized by a brilliant livery in Citrea Green and Dac Orange.
But the uniqueness of this project does not end here: on that occasion, in fact, Ducati and Automobili Lamborghini communicated that they had thought of an even more exclusive series of 63 units, called Speciale Clienti, which allowed 63 Lamborghini customers to come into contact directly with the Centro Stile Ducati and configure their Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini with colours, bodywork and rims exactly like those of their Lamborghini.
Among these 63 customers, there is also the owner of “Minotauro”, who therefore asked Ducati, Automobili Lamborghini and the artist Troilo to give life to “Centauro” work of art.
