The collaboration between Colnago and Ferrari finished...Since 1986 it lasts...It is the turn of Bianchi now... :(

Looks more like a Ferrari bike made from Bianchi than a Bianchi bike made with the knowledge of Ferrari.

I agrree that the most interesting part is the saddle.

After 3 decades and a few amazing Colnago-Ferrari models I cannot see the the reason for a Ferrari painted specialissima.
Those were the good years...:

But it is actually a bad joke itself, not even worth laughing at.

I guess they sort of had to come out with something at the Eurobike event and given the short timeframe they took Specialissima, did some half-assed paint job on it, put some expensive parts on it and yadaaa... Purely marketing driven move it seems.
They'd better not show anything specific yet and keep working on something serious instead...

WOW...that is easily the ugliest Bianchi I've ever seen. At least the top tube allows selling at Target...which is where that monstrosity belongs.

(Note: I believe that all Bianchi's should be celeste...so that may have influence my thinking).

Reminds me of other collaborations with BMW / Mercedes in which they sell branded bikes at their stores.

It'll cost you $1000 to change your chain oil at the Ferrari dealership.
