Nope. It's just an artists concept drawings sadly. Kinda looks cool though. Shimano should take notice.

Yes, Argon also posted some Dura Ace concepts back in 2014 that are strikingly similar to above.

Taken from bikerumor

''UPDATE: We first heard rumor of a new Di2 group spotted on an Argon 18 road bike while walking Eurobike. Then, we got the full download on 2015 bikes and a tip from a reader, hence the speculation below. The descriptions have been left intact for fun by turned italic to set them apart. Why leave them in? As a reference point for one, but also because they look great. Sadly, they’re not real. Argon 18’s marketing chief chimed in to say: “The images you’re referring to are actually 3D renderings. This is why there are some slight differences with the angles and light on some of the bikes’ parts. So, to answer your question, our 2015 bikes are not showing a new Shimano Dura-Ace Di2.”

What's there to elaborate? Every time someone posts an Argon 18 render and asks about "Di2 update" is free hype for Shimano.
