Motorcycle racer Giancarlo Morbidelli developed the Morbidelli V8 to be the ultimate luxury street bike. Morbidelli paired an 847cc engine to a Pininfarina styled body. Though the V8 delivered effortless power, the styling of the first prototypes was panned as being cartoonish. The styling of this second generation V8 was vastly improved, but the bad press and shocking anticipated $60,000 price dashed any hopes of success. Ultimately, only four prototypes were produced.
