Bike Love | Colnago for Ferrari "The Di2"

Bicycle master's Colnago, and automotive top-dogs, Ferrari brought their experience and technology together to create this bicycle, the Di2, to represent the highest synthesis of 'Made in Italy'. This bicycle is a proper technological icon with innovations from F1 and an invincible performance. The new Colnago for Ferrari DI2 sports a frame made of carbon fiber (HHM).The bicycle weighs in a shockingly low,  6 kg, or about 13.2lbs to us yanks.

The main frame is based on 3PRS technology, a system to strengthen frames internally. A technology originated in aeronautics, improving the frame's rigidity and reducing the weight. A further innovation is the employment of the Dura Ace Di2 electronic group, optimising the gears and keeping the bicycle chain tight and straightened, thus eliminating possible mistakes. Gear change speed and precision of these components are the Colnago for Ferrari Di2 racing cycle's added value. Racing Speed XLR wheels with carbon fibre hub. CULT technology ball bearings with high resistance thanks to Inox Cronitect® with surface thermo-chemical treatment.

The bike is a Limited Edition series of 50.

Once the bicycle has been ordered the client will receive a form from the customer care department for the racing cycle's personalization. The client has to indicate his/her standover, the height and the shoe size for a perfect customization.

All this for $16,750 oh yeah plus 20% VAT. Thats a fortune better spent on art IMO, but its still damn cool. See more pictures and full specifications after the jump...
