Brough Superior featured in Taschen "Collector" book
The Ultimate Collector Mortorcycles box set is a true masterpiece, just like the Brough Superior and the 100 bikes featured in the double book released by Taschen at the end of March. 940 pages and almost 10 kilos for an XL format and exceptional machines, specially photographed in studio for the book "in their natural state" but in a remarkable condition. This is notably the case of the 1938 Brough Superior Golden Dream, which is featured on the cover of the boxed set, of which the Toulouse factory released its modern interpretation in 2022.
Two other pre-war models are featured in the first of the two volumes, including a Brough Superior SS100 that belonged to Lawrence of Arabia, one of seven owned by the speed-loving spy-adventurer. Also pictured and detailed are the first Brough Superior racer, an SS80 "Old Bill" and a splendid "straight-Four" sidecar. Brough Superior is featured prominently in this collector’s edition of 9,000 copies worldwide by Charlotte and Peter Fiell, design experts and authors of more than sixty books, most of them in the field of mobility.
This XL-sized book, 28.1 x 36 cm, traces a complete history of the exceptional motorcycle, from the Hildebrand & Wolfmuller of 1894 to the Aston Martin AMB 001 of 2020. A new tribute to Brough Superior and its contemporary activity in France, near Toulouse, in the perfect lineage of exceptional motorcycles manufacturing initiated by George Brough more than a century ago, since it is in the Brough Superior factory that Aston Martins on two wheels are designed, in active collaboration with the famous English brand.
