A track-only limited edition motorcycle has been unveiled as the first product from a new partnership between Aston Martin and Brough Superior.
The AMB 001 by Aston Martin and Brough Superior has made its worldwide debut at the Milan Motorcycle Show (EICMA). The reveal heralds the first chapter of an exciting new partnership between Aston Martin and Brough Superior.
The turbocharged V-twin engine in the AMB 001 produces 177bhp Strictly limited to just 100 examples, the track-only AMB 001 represents the union of iconic Aston Martin design and state-of-the-art Brough Superior engineering to create a piece of automotive art for the motorbike connoisseur.
Taking their inspiration from the new series of mid-engined Aston Martin cars, the Aston Martin Design team worked on clear principles of form and function, where design and engineering had to work together, resulting in a motorcycle that is a high-performance work of art.
The AMB 001 features a sublime combination of paint and bare carbon fibre that accentuates the lines of this collectors item. As befits the Aston Martin and Brough Superior brands, every component has been specially designed using the best processes and materials, including carbon fibre, titanium and billet aluminium.
The same ultra-lightweight Aston Martin wings from the Aston Martin Valkyrie sit under the lacquer bodywork of the AMB 001 The AMB 001 boasts a turbocharged output of 177bhp at just 180kg dry weight. This turbo configuration brings an incredible engine response with huge torque across a wide range of engine speeds. This is also the first time that a Brough Superior model is presented with a V-twin turbocharged engine.
In keeping with its track-inspired pedigree, the AMB 001 is presented with ultra-lightweight Aston Martin wings, which sit under the lacquer of the bodywork on the nose and the tank. These are the same nine-micron stainless steel wings that adorn the Aston Martin Valkyrie.
The AMB 001 is being built and hand-assembled in the Brough Superior factory in Toulouse, France.
