Two Italian brands have come together to form one unbeatable partnership for the Rouleur Classic event. The iconic car manufacturer Maserati and the highly regarded bike brand Cipollini together created a Maserati Cipollini BOND road bike which was auctioned off for Action Medical Research. Having been signed by Mario Cipollini himself, the bike was the highlight of the Maserati Lounge, where visitors participated in a silent auction to see who would take it home.
Painted in blue and white the Bike sports the Rouleur Classic and Maserati branding, as well as the Maserati trident in red on either side of the seat tube.
The size 54cm bike features a Shimano Ultegra mechanical groupset with a standard 53/39 chainset and 11-23 cassette. Its wheels are Fast Forward F2A alloy clinchers fitted with Challenge Forte Race 25mm tyres. The seat is a Selle San Marco Aspide saddle and the handlebars are from Ritchey.
The retail price of the bike is reportedly £4500 (that’s an impressive $6,809). But there’s no word yet on the lucky winning bid that won the bike.
Mario Cipollini, owner of Cipollini bikes said of the collaboration, ‘To pair two such like-minded Italian brands was an opportunity not to miss, and the Rouleur Classic is the perfect place to show the bike and hopefully raise a lot of money for charity. The lucky winner will be the owner of a truly unique bike.’
