This sexy, sexy beast is the Carbon Bike from Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH, the star of their 2006 Bike Collection. While this is their very first racing bike, the use of carbon fiber in vehicle shells isn't new to Mercedes-Benz—the McLaren Mercedes F1 cars of Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya heavily incorporate it, and their SLR McLaren is the world's first production car with a body shell made entirely of it. The Carbon Bike weighs in at an amazingly light 8.3 kilograms, comes with components from famed Japanese manufacturer Shimano, a €2990/$3665 pricetag and in a limited edition of 1999.
