The Aston Martin One-77 is one of the world’s most expensive, advanced, and exclusive cars–only 77 were made, and each was priced at $2 million dollars. Car-enthusiasts who weren’t able to get their hands on a One-77 before they sold out can now line up to buy the 2-wheeled version, the One-77 Cycle.

The One-77  Cycle is a collaboration between Aston Martin and Factor Bikes, a company known for their high-end road-racing bikes. The resulting partnership is being billed as the ‘world’s most technologically advanced bicycle’:

A fitting partner for the Aston Martin One-77, the most elegant, sophisticated and powerful road car the company has ever built. Both machines have much in common; a clean sheet design, developed from the ground up to showcase the most extraordinary potential of modern design, craft and engineering.

Like the Aston Martin One-77, the One-77 Cycle is made of only 77 pieces, and the bike seat and handlebars feature the same leather and custom-stitching that is used in the auto version. Other components of the bike also draw inspiration from its auto namesake- the main frame and wheels are made from carbon, making it lightweight and ready to race, made even easier by its Japanese-made 21-speed Shimano Dura-Ace gears. The bike also built-in front and rear lights via a built-in an integrated lighting system with high-powered LED lights.

But the most advanced feature of the One-77 Cycle is the built-in touchscreen computer system that rests between the handlebars of the bike like a dashboard to a car. The computer lets cyclists see 100 performance measures- speed, altitude, rate of ascent, leg power, and acceleration are among the advanced stats available.

The One-77 Cycle borrows one final aspect from the Aston Martin One-77: only 77 bikes will be made. Orders will start being taken in July 2012, and the bikes will retail for around $40,000.
