Cars aren’t the only forms of transportation that Audi makes—the haute automotive company is now in the bicycle business as well.

The brand showed off its Audi Sport Racing Bike at the 85th Geneva Motor Show, joining other automotive brands such as McLaren, Aston Martin and Lamborghini, all of whom have created bikes as well.

The bicycle—created in partnership with the German CarbonSports—retails for $18,620.


If you’re one of the lucky few to own it, know that you’ll be owning a collectors item—only 50 bikes will be produced (and they’ll have a limited edition badge to prove it).

The bike echoes the brand’s sports cars: the Selle Italia saddle is covered in the same fine Nappa leather used in the Audi R8, while the frame and forks are made from the same T1000 carbon that is used in the Audi R18 e-tron Quattro cockpit.
