  There comes a time in most automaker's lives when they branch out their product line to include various things such as hats, t-shirts, mugs, etc. It's all about the bottom line and these little knick-knacks make for just a tad more profit. Road bicycles also fall into that category. BMW, McLaren, RangeRover, and many other brands have fallen into the single track vehicle segment. Hey, it's all about making that money and providing that much more brand recognition.

Ferrari not only makes beautifully sculpted automobiles like the 599 GTO and the F450 , but they also make beautifully sculpted racing bikes. Now, you’ve got to seriously love either the Ferrari name or bicycle racing in general to put down this much dough on a racing bike. Colnago and Ferrari have joined forces to create a limited edition Ferrari Di2 racing cycle. We are going to set the stage here a little before letting you know just how much this elegant machine costs.

The Di2 racing bike has a carbon fiber frame with Racing Speed XLR wheels and carbon fiber hubs. The frame is strengthened internally by the use of 3PRS technology and gear optimization is achieved by the Dura Ace Di2 electronic group. This group also keeps the chain tight and straightened eliminating possible mistakes. The limited edition Di2 also has high resistance ball bearings provided by Inox Cult technology. Ferrari will have your customized Di2 delivered to your home up to 60 days after the order has been placed.

Entry level racing bikes cost between $500-$800 with top of the line models running between $800 and $2000. If you enter the high end model line, that’ll cost you $2000-$6000. The limited edition (only 50 units will be produced) Ferrari Di2 is yours for the not-so-bargain price of $16,750. All we can say is we better win that race!
