The Audi Sport Racing Bike is a limited edition bicycle being produced by the German automaker in collaboration with Lightweight, a German company known for making elite carbon racing wheels. The two companies combined their expertise in the area of carbon racing components.

The end result is the Audi Sport Racing Bike, a bike which weighs only 5.8 kg thanks to its ultra light yet surprisingly durable carbon frame, which weighs only 1.7 pounds. The use of lightweight materials is seen all over and in the tiniest details such as the wheels and even the handlebar tape.

Only 50 of these highly exclusive bikes will be sold, which is just as well at a price of $19,450. The bike's combination of ultra lightweight and high durability will make it a monster on the road.
