Best of British
Limited to just 100 examples and strictly for use on the racetrack, the AMB 001 is the very first motorcycle to wear the famous Aston Martin wings. The futuristic sports bike was created in partnership with Brough Superior and features a double-wishbone front fork, a 180HP turbocharged V-twin engine and a structural carbon-fibre body. The latter is inspired by the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, evident, apparently, in the mix of exposed and Stirling Green carbon-fibre and the nine-micron stainless steel wing badges that sit beneath the lacquer on the nose and fuel tank. We’re not sure we really see the resemblance, but it is nonetheless a stunning piece of sculptural design. Here’s hoping we see a road-legal version in the not-too-distant future that looks as wild as this one. Bizarrely, the bikes will be built at Brough Superior’s factory in France. Deliveries of the AMB 001 will commence this time next year with each costing 108,000 euros including local taxes.
