Inspired by the unmistakable design of the AMG performance brand, the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition is characterised by an exciting mix of exclusivity and maximum performance. In addition to the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition, a CLS 63 AMG with a host of attractive components from the AMG Performance Studio is on display to highlight the visual similarities with the very special Ducati motorbike.
The Diavel AMG Special Edition is the first Ducati motorbike incorporating another company’s design elements, keeping with the November 2010 agreement between AMG and Ducati to exchange ideas between the designers and engineers in Affalterbach and Bologna, Italy.
Based on the Ducati Diavel Carbon and its innovative design, the look of the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition has been further refined with attributes reminiscent of unique Mercedes-AMG high-performance cars: extraordinary forged wheels featuring a quintessential AMG look, aluminium air deflectors in the carbon-fibre panels on the side-mounted radiators, a newly developed sports exhaust system as well as bench seat finished in perforated Alcantara with horizontal cross stitching are just some of the highlights of the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition. The frame, tank and rear bench seat cover are finished in diamond white metallic Bright, the colour of the CLS 63 AMG, creating a stylish contrast to the matt, iridescent carbon fibre.
A badge on the left engine block, bearing the signature of the technician who calibrated the desmodromic valve timing, pays tribute to the exclusivity afforded to each individual motorbike. Another feature of this special model is a numbered plaque on the fuel tank. The wheels, bench seat and rear silencers of the sports exhaust system also bear the AMG logo. Each of the side air inlet ducts feature laser-engraved AMG lettering.
Further visual highlights include the bichromatic AMG light-alloy forged wheels featuring a 5-twin-spoke design, painted in high-gloss black with a high-sheen finish. The front axle is fitted with 255/35 R 19 tyres, while the rear comes with 285/30 R 19 tyres. Both the AMG Exterior Carbon-Fibre package in matt and the AMG light-alloy wheels are exclusive components available from the AMG Performance Studio, which also provides a host of options for enhancing the look of any CLS 63 AMG.
