Imagine a bicycle which literally gives you wings! With the Trek Butterfly Madone, you get just that. Taking its name quite literally, this brand-new model by Trek sparked controversy with animal welfare groups like PETA for using butterfly wings in its design.


Damien Hirst, the creator, placed real butterfly wings on solid frame and rim of the bicycle. Other than its quirky design, the bicycle also boasts of some famous riders including Lance Armstrong who used it in the 2009 Tour de France race.


The bicycle is aesthetically pleasing, decorated in pink and purple patterns. The bike’s priced at $500,000, and the profits collected were donated at a Sotheby’s cancer benefit program.
