We would say that this is the ideal ride for "the man who has everything", but it's an illogical statement we've never understood.

No, this is the ideal ride for the man who has everything except a Tron Lightcycle

A one-off replica constructed for the automotive-obsessed Andrews Collection of Texas, this 96 volt steed is a fully functioning Lightcycle (well, it doesn't leave a trail of light, given the laws of physics). Powered by an electric motor with computer-controlled throttle and hydraulic breaks, the ride height is a shin-threatening 72 centimetres from the tarmac, capable of reaching speeds of around 35 mph.

The Tron Lightcycle replica is just one lot in a range of more traditional classic cars the Texan collectors are auctioning with Southerby's. The lot's notes state that the bike hasn't covered any great distance, having "only been ridden around [the Andrews] facilities to ensure that it remains in functioning condition". 

With a final auction price expected to fetch between $25,000 - $40,000 (£16,800 - £26,800), budding Tron fans should point their cursors towards Southerby's auction site on 2 May for a chance of riding off on this exceptional replica.
