Talking aesthetics, the AMB 001 Pro dons a front cowl, which is attached to the bodywork. Well, it does not just cheat the wind, it also pushes the air into the intake. The fairing further gets a front spoiler, rear aero stabiliser, and side wings. Yes! All of these elements keep it planted on the ground.

The carmaker's lacewing badge is used on the motorcycle, which was designed for the Aston Martin Valkyrie. It is a whopping 99.7 per cent lighter as compared to its enamel counterpart. Aston Martin claims that the badge is in fact 30% thinner than a human hair. The moniker will be seen on the nose and tank.
