Only 107 Aston Martin Edition Storcks to be produced, best not to ask about the price

German bike brand Storck and British car manufacturer Aston Martin have partnered to develop the special edition 5.9kg Fascenario 3 Aston Martin Edition.

The latest in a long line of collaborations between cycling and sports car brands, the bike was developed jointly between company founder Markus Storck and Aston Martin's bespoke division. Just 107 will be produced.

At just 770g for the frame and 5.9kg overall, Storck's partnership with Aston Martin saw it using 'nanocarbon technology' to ensure the bike is aerodynamic, stiff and light in equal measure.

 

Equipped with Sram Red eTap, a THM crankset and Zipp 303 wheels, the bike's distinctive Argentum Nero paint scheme subtly changes colour between green, grey and silver depending on the light. 

This bespoke finish will also feature on a future car collaboration between the two brands. 

The Fascenario 3 Aston Martin Edition - on display at this week's Rouleur Classic - was first unveiled as a prototype a year ago, and Storck has worked hard to improve the stiffness of the bottom bracket, while the Pirelli P Zero tyres is a nod to the bike's automotive connection.

Speaking on the collaboration, Storck founder Markus Storck was keen to emphasise the quality of the bike: 'I would say that this is probably the best bicycle ever built with an automotive name on it.'

No word yet on how much the Storck Fascenario 3 Aston Martin Edition will cost, but expect a number ending with a fair few zeroes.
