Haven't you heard? There's a bicycle shortage in the United States as people's discomfort with taking public transportation is met with their need to exercise. But as always, with impeccable timing, Lamborghini is here with a solution — a limited-edition street bike. Yours for merely the price of a cheap new car. 

Lamborghini teamed up with Canadian-Dutch bicycle company Cervélo Cycles to create the "ultra-limited edition" (their words) Cervélo R5 Automobili Lamborghini Edition. It wears a livery that you'll recognize from the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and has only Italian-made components as accessories. 

Only 63 examples of the bike will be made. It's available now and carries a price tag of $18,000 — or about $3,000 more than a new Mitsubishi Mirage.
