How much would you pay for a top-of-the-line bike?
$2,500? $5,000? $7,500?
How about the price of a car?
Audi has unveiled its latest bicycle design, an ultra-light limited edition masterpiece that exceeds the state-of-the-art and comes with a price tag that matches what a low-end vehicle would cost: $19,650.
The frame weights less than five iPhone 6 Plus phones (790 grams) and is made from the same carbon fiber material, T1000, you’ll find in Audi’s sports cars – which, according to an Audi spokesman, accounts for the astronomical price. The total weight of the bike is less than six kilograms.
First revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, only 50 of Audi’s luxury bikes are available worldwide.
