Is it time for a new bike? Look no further, because we have found the perfect new whip for you - at $11,000 a pop, it's an absolute steal!

The bike is built by an Italian company called Pininfarina, a frequent design collaborator with Ferrari. Taking a look at the 'Fuoriserie' you can see some serious artistry has gone into its creation.

Described as a "jewel on two-wheels", the Fuoriserie's only real notable features are its fancy-pants woven leather seat and handlebars, and walnut wood wrapped steel frame.

There is also the opportunity to shell out an extra $300 for an electric motor that will help with tough hill climbs.

While there is no doubt that Pininforina's first furore into bicycles has produced a stunning looking bike, here at Mpora we're not really sure what all the money is going towards.

When put up next to another top of the range bike can the Fuoriserie hold its own?

The BMC Timemachine TMR01 is a fully kitted out racing road bike. It sells for $9262,  which is still more than my car but a lot less than the Fuoriserie.

While the Fuoriserie has no apparent advantages, it is still a beautiful piece of engineering. At $11,000 it is still cheaper than one other bike we can think of....
