Yes, you read it right. Famed German automaker Audi decided to take on the bicycle market by introducing the Audi Sport Racing Bike – a masterpiece on two wheels that was put together using some of the most reliable materials presently available on the market. The bike was launched during the 85th edition of the Geneva Motor Show and was created with the help of a German company named CarbonSports.
This being an Audi product, it makes sense that some of its materials and finishes have been be borrowed from certain Audi cars. For example, the Selle Italia saddle is enveloped in Fine Nappa leather, which is the same material that wraps the seats of the new R8 model. Moreover, the cockpit of the Audi R18 e-tron Quattro boasts a material named T1000 carbon, which was also used for the bike’s forks and frame. Sketched out by the Audi Concept Design Studio, this lightweight and elegant bicycle is limited to just 50 units and carries a price tag of $18,620.
