Lamborghinis obviously don’t come cheap, which means only the elite few will ever get the chance to own one. But in a surprising “one more thing” announcement during Xiaomi’s 10th-anniversary event, the Chinese electronics company has unveiled the Ninebot Go Kart Pro Lamborghini Edition, letting you own a piece of the experience at just a fraction of the price.
Based on the Ninebot Go Kart Pro, the Lamborghini Edition is finished in the Italian supercar-maker’s iconic Giallo Orion yellow paintjob, and even comes with the raging bull’s logo in front, along with the “Automobili Lamborghini” script on the front panel.
Complementing the comically-large spoiler at the rear are the new TPE front splitter and side skirts, which apparently helps with the aerodynamic of the tiny Lamborghini.
Aside from just the aesthetic treatment, the Ninebot Go Kart Pro Lamborghini Edition is also fitted with “Ice Lake Blue” LED headlights, Lamborghini-inspired speedometer display and drive-mode selector, and even a set of custom-made tyres specifically made for drifting – even though Lamborghinis are not exactly known for their tyre-slaying capabilities.
While it might look a little different to a “normal” Lamborghini, the special edition Go Kart Pro does come with a sound generator that emulates the engine noise of a Lamborghini V10 or V12 powerplant, bringing you at least a little closer to the real experience.
The electric motor at the rear is able to propel the go kart up to 40 km/h. Power comes from a 432 Wh battery, which Xiaomi says is good for 62 laps of a 400-metre track from a single charge – which works out to be 24.8 km of driving range. The company claims that the Go Kart Pro can carry a load of up to 100 kg.
When you’re done with driving around in a go kart, you can even remove the frame to use it as a self-balancing scooter – the Ninebot scooter which forms the “powertrain” section of the go kart is actually sold under the Segway brand in the United States.
The Xiaomi Ninebot Go Kart Pro Lamborghini Edition is priced at CNY9,999 (approx. RM6,032) in China, though a global release is expected at a later date.
