Students from Liverpool University are in the process of making a bicycle, which would be encased in an aerodynamic outer shell, at 90mph.

The student designers are confident that their bike would be able to smash the 83.1mph fastest time set by a Dutch team back in 2012, Metro.co.uk reported.

The bike - known as the ARION1 - has been designed to be pedalled in a recumbent position, with the rider just a few centimetres above the ground.

According to the students, the shape of the windscreen-less carbon fibre casing is 40 times more aerodynamic than a Bugatti Veyron supercar.
