It was approximately a decade ago that legendary moto marque Brough Superior was revived in modern form. While all thoroughly top-shelf, the elite British firm’s initial offerings were largely rooted in the past, with contemporary takes on Brough’s historical two-wheeled icons like the SS100. In 2019, Brough take a major step forward with the reveal of the AMB 001 — a cutting-edge 180-hp superbike born out of a collaboration with Aston Martin. And after bringing the AMB 001— and an even more powerful 225-hp AMB 001 PRO track-only superbike — to market, Brough Superior has now taken the knowhow and experience gleaned developing the AMB 001 and is using them to deliver an ultra-limited-edition run of Ultimate Series SS100 and Lawrence motorcycles.

From Brough Superior’s Classic Design range is the Ultimate Series version of the SS100. Good for 102hp and 64ft-lbs of torque, the bike’s water-cooled 997cc V-twin now sports an aluminum block that’s been precision-machined using the same five-axis CNC rig that Brough utilized when making the AMB 001’s engine. This state-of-the-art production technique leaves the CNC rig’s beautiful machining lines on full display — not unlike the route ARCH has taken with its motorcycles. Further separating the Ultimate Series SS100 from the regular model is a host of special silver leaf accents that now adorn the limited edition two-wheeler. The bike is also decorated in special “Ultimate” script decals, as well as graphics denoting each limited edition unit’s production number.

The same treatment has been bestowed upon Brough Superior’s Lawrence model — the exclusive manufacturer’s flagship offering from its Modern Design range. Brimming with exposed carbon fiber elements, the Ultimate Series Lawrence benefits from the same machined aluminum engine block as the Ultimate Series SS100. The Ultimate Series Lawrence also shares its SS100 counterpart’s silver leaf accents and “Ultimate” and production number graphics. While subtle, these changes collectively make an already immensely exclusive pair of motorcycles all the more elite.
