If somebody made a Gran Turismo-style video game about bicycles, this would be the one that took you three years to level up to. Specialized has partnered up with McLaren to build what amounts to a two-wheeled 650S, the S-Works McLaren Tarmac.

Decide now whether you want a new car or this bike, as the going rate each one of the mere 250 vehicles being built is a cool $20,000. Why? Let’s start with the frame that uses a carbon layup process developed with McLaren to produce a lightweight bike that’s still strong and durable. A unique two-tone color scheme features black paint with a subtle flake and an orange based on McLaren’s signature color. Once you’ve drained your bank account, Specialized calls you up and gets you to a dealer to get a Body Geometry Fit consultation, making sure everything is tailor-made to your body. The pricey package also includes an exclusive Prevail helmet and Road shoes which are designed with the same color scheme as the bike. The reservation period has already begun, and it closes on July 31st. [Purchase]
