The McLaren Pro Road Bike is a work of art by McLaren, one of the top Formula Racing companies in the world, in collaboration with American company Specialized. This $10,000 two-wheeler is not for city strolling.

The McLaren Pro Road Bike was designed by Chris D’Aluisio, head of research behind the operation. The stunning cycle features an aerodynamic frame built entirely out of carbon fiber. The carbon fiber frame allows the bike frame to only weigh a minimal 2.1 pounds.

The McLaren Pro Road Bike took years in the making. It went through countless wind tunnel and on-track tests to ensure the best ratio of aerodynamics and stiffness. The partnership with McLaren in the later years helped further the tests to make this one of the most agile bikes on the market. Stats for Race Car-Inspired Cycles Trending: Older & Chilly
