Mercedes-AMG, a sports car and high-performance brand within the Mercedes-Benz family, has teamed up with German bicycle manufacturer Rotwild to create the limited-edition Rotwild GT S mountain bike. This bike is inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT car.
This bike comes with a monocoque carbon fiber frame. There's carbon all over this bike, including on its handlebar, seat post, saddle, rims and even its water bottle cage. The bike's bumps are handled by a 100-mm ThirtyThree fork from Italian brand Formula, while a Shimano drivetrain takes care of gear shifting. This fancy bike is also equipped with Formula R1 Racing hydraulic disc brakes and clipless pedals.
Like the Mercedes-AMG GT car, the Rotwild GT S is an exclusive offering. Only 100 bikes will be made, with each selling for around $10,870.
This bike is a great example of cross-pollination in design and engineering. It's not the first example of a bike being inspired by an automotive design and surely won't be the last.
