Bicycle maker PG builds Bugatti bike
Regensburg, 22. December 2015. PG, the luxury bicycle crafter from Regensburg is expanding its programme with a very special product. As new license partner of the supercar maker Bugatti, PG is building a high-tech bike which will be called the PG Bugatti Bike. Weighing less than five kilogrammes, it is to be the lightest urban bike in the world. Expertise in development and production come from PG, while Bugatti is furnishing the design and name. Production has already begun. A pedelec bike with a supplementary electric drive will also be available. Each model is limited to 667 units: The base price for the standard model of the bike is €35,000, not including tax.
“We had the vision of building the ultimate bicycle to go with the ultimate car; ultimate in design, workmanship and performance,” said Manuel Ostner, the CEO of PG. “That is why we are very happy that Bugatti supports this vision, and we are proud to be able to use the name of this extraordinary brand for our product.”
“We liked PG’s idea of building a bicycle in the spirit of our company founder, Ettore Bugatti, who also designed a bike,” said Achim Anscheidt, the Director of Design at Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. “The goal of developing a high-tech product using the newest and finest materials for lightweight construction which, on top of that, was to bear our brand DNA, convinced us to develop the bike’s design together with PG and to suggest formal ideas.”
Achim Anscheidt and his team drew their stylistic inspiration for the design from Ettore’s original bike. In addition the selection of materials such as carbon, titanium and aluminium are oriented to the standard of a modern Bugatti supercar.
The standard PG Bugatti bike is 95 percent carbon and, weighing less than five kilograms, is the world’s lightest urban bike.
The Bugatti bikes are completed, refined and customised according to the customer’s wishes by hand in the PG Bugatti showroom in Weinstadt. Bugatti customers can adapt their bicycle’s style to match their Bugatti supercar.
The result is a bicycle “Made in Germany” which is not only breathtakingly beautiful and special but also boasts absolut cutting-edge technology.
Orders are now being accepted for PG Bugatti bikes. The starting price of the standard model is €35,000 plus tax.
