    The French sure have a taste for design and art. It no wonder they come up with vehicles that look like exhibits right out of a modern art museum. French designers Charles-Edouard Berche, Ugo Spagnolo , Adrien Fuinesl, Frédéric Dobbelstein and Jean-Philippe Paries put their brains together and came up with this mean machine. Christened the Saline Bird, this bike uses air compression to power up and was designed for Les Triplettes de Bonneville. Made out of carbon fiber that keeps all the extra pounds away, the rider needs to sit in a skier-like position to maneuver this one. This also helps reduce air resistance and help improve the aerodynamics of the bike.

    The French sure know their stuff, and they keep it clean too! Alternative energy is soon winning hearts world over!
