AMB001 Brough Superior Has Not Been Forgotten By Us

AMB001 Brough Superior

This AMB001 is probably the most unique two wheel machine ever made.

Back in 2020, luxury supercar manufacturer Aston Martin decided to team up with specialist motorcycle manufacturer Brough Superior to build a limited edition superbike that will be more of a show piece than a running machine for professional bikers.

Meet the limited edition AMB001 Brough Superior. Built with carbon fibre and titanium structure and equipped with a V-twin 997cc turbocharged engine that delivers 180bhp.

AMB001 Brough SuperiorThe AMB001 carried a price tag of USD99,000 and with only 100 units delivered from the factory, this motorcycle has mostly ended up with collectors who never enjoy their speed and handling.

Weighing in at only 396lbs, this lightweight motorcycle uses aluminium and carbon-fiber to keep it slim and agile.

Now two years later, we wonder if anyone has seen the AMB001 being used on the tarmac. Well, it seems 10 units are still available for sale at Aston Martin. Unboxed and ready for you.

AMB001 Brough SuperiorPRESS RELEASE: Strictly limited to just 100 motorcycles, the track-only AMB001 represents the union of iconic Aston Martin design and state-of-the-art Brough Superior engineering to create a piece of dynamic art for the motorbike connoisseur.


A DOHC 997cc 8-Valve 88-degree V-twin, water and oil cooled, short stroke measuring 94mm x 71.8mm, kicks out a turbo-charged 134 kW (180hp) at just 180 kilos dry weight.

The AMB 001 represents the first Brough Superior model to be presented with a turbo-charged engine. The powerful turbo gifts the rider with a motor that has an incredible response and huge torque over a wide range of RPM.

The variable geometry turbo is intercooled for increased efficiency and its modern low inertia turbine is specifically designed to avoid turbo lag.

The Transmission includes an extractible 6 speed gearbox an APTC clutch, and a final chain drive.

The timing is driven by a compact short Morse chain and a gear train to ensure precision and reliability.

The engine covers are machined from a solid billet of metal.

The exhaust manifold is manufactured from Inconel, a super-alloy chosen for its excellent thermal and mechanical properties.

The innovative chassis aggregates the best techniques such as a CNC machined from solid backbone bolted on the V-twin engine which is a fully load-bearing chassis component, combining stiffness with lightness. Then structural carbon fiber rear sub frame and Titanium interfaces are completing this high-tech chassis.

Wheels are machined from aluminum forgings with their exclusive AMB 001 design.

Specific brake system developed by a racing brake specialist, all the component machined from solid, ball bearing action on the radial master cylinder piston, less effort for strong braking power with a prefect feeling.


The body parts are fully made from carbon fiber, even when non-visible on the painted parts. Some of the body parts are structural and are allowing weight reduction.

The leather seat is handcrafted equally as luxury car interior, with high quality leather and stitching, matching with the handcrafted handlebars grips.
