The sec­ond of Lewis Hamil­ton’s col­lab­o­ra­tions with mo­tor­cy­cle man­u­fac­turer MV Agusta takes him into su­per­bike ter­ri­tory.

Based on the ex­ist­ing F4 RC, the F4 LH44 fea­tures engine mod­i­fi­ca­tions and a ti­ta­nium ex­haust to lib­er­ate 212bhp (up from 205bhp) from the scream­ing 998cc four-cylin­der ra­dial-valve engine. Engine man­age­ment soft­ware, in­clud­ing an in­er­tial mea­sure­ment unit, prom­ises to re­duce the pos­si­bil­ity of the beast spit­ting you off.

The LH44 swaps race-replica decals for Lewis’s pre­ferred Candy Ap­ple Red paint­work, com­plete with pan­ther lo­gos. Oh, and the Pirelli Di­ablo tyres are cus­tom, too, with red side­walls. Just 44 ex­am­ples of this hand-built model are be­ing made.
