Italian automaker Alfa Romeo, has launched their latest project, the ’4C IFD Bicycle’. Designed by the Alfa Romeo Style Centre and made by Italy’s Compagnia Ducale, the lightweight and very sleek-looking two-wheeler will go on sale this December in Europe, Asia and America with prices ranging from €3,500 ($4,700) to €9,000 ($12,200) depending on the model. The IFD in the bicycle’s name stands for ‘Innovative Frame Design’, which refers to the ‘C’-shaped cross-section of the frame made from the same carbon-fiber half-tube materials used on the chassis of the Alfa Romeo 4C.
Alfa Romeo isn’t the only brand to offer bicycles loosely based on its four-wheelers. We’ve seen limited edition bikes from the house of Lamborghini, Aston Martin, BMW and even Toyota’s Lexus made an LFA-inspired bike for the Japanese market.
