James Bond rides plenty of motorcycles, usually picked up while in baddie hot-pursuit, so why not give him one with the Aston Martin winged logo on it? The British exotic automaker and the revived, legendary Brough Superior motorcycle brand have joined forces to build one of the most menacing bikes on earth, the AMB 001. The very limited production (a mere 100 units) bike gets a monstrous 997cc V-twin turbocharged engine good for 180 horsepower, about as much as most cars. The styling, though, is what grabs in the most dramatic of ways with carbon fiber, titanium, and billet aluminum construction, along with a minimalist but artful brown leather seat that matches the handgrips. The small fairing and body sculpting mimic current Aston Martin cars, as does the color of the paint. The asking price? About $120,000, which is still thousands cheaper than the “bargain”, $149,000 Aston Martin Vantage.
