Cor! Cool car Co collaboration conjures up a cycling creation that costs a chunk of cash
The £15k Aston Martin superbike, plus Brompton’s collaboration with Barbour..
Martin are, of course, best known for making the type of high-end motor you’d see James Bond smashing up in a splendidly gratuitous chase scene. Well, the classic British marque has collaborated with renowned German bicycle manufacturer Storck to produce a limited-edition run of road bikes. With impressive results. The Aston Martin Edition is the ultimate evolution of the Storck Fascenario.3. Using fill nano-carbon technology, the frame weighs a mere 770g. Even once loaded up with SRAM’S wireless etap gear shifting, THM components and a set of Zipp wheels, it’s still super light, barely bothering the scales at a featherweight 5.9kg. Markus Storck who owns Storck bikes had previously worked with Aston Martin’s Q Division – a proper posh service that creates bespoke cars – to develop its ‘One of Seven’ project to produce sports cars that focused on showcasing carbon fibre. And Q Division’s repaid the favour by mixing the bike’s subtle yet distinctive paint. Named Argentum Nero, it is a twist on the company’s classic racing green. Depending on the light, the paint colour changes subtly, appearing a lustrous grey, green or silver. This colour will also appear on a future car collaboration between Storck and Aston Martin. Just 107 of the Aston Martin Edition will be made and they don’t come cheap. In fact, you’d have to have been an exceedingly good boy this year for Santa to bring you one of these. How good? £15,777-worth of good! For a slightly more affordable version of the bike, see our full review of the Storck Fascenario.3 on page 18.
