Mr Thierry Henriette, the Chief Executive Officer at Brough Superior, said, "One of the key design features of the AMB 001 is an Aluminium fin that runs along the full length of a carbon fiber tank, passing under the saddle and out onto the rear."

"The body holding the fin and supporting the saddle is one of the areas where we called on the unique knowledge of Mecano ID, who joined the project to apply specialist aerospace-quality carbon fibre skills to the exclusive AMB 001," he added.

The AMB 001 is priced at Euros 108,000 (roughly Rs 92 lakh, plus taxes and registration). Only 100 of these machines will be built and deliveries are expected to begin closer to Christmas this year.
