Finished in pearlescent Aston Martin paintwork and loaded with SRAM Red eTap, Zipp’s 303 NSW wheels and a smattering of lightweight bits from THM, the build totals 5.9kg / 13lb.
The collaboration came after company founder Markus Storck placed an order for seven exclusive versions of the Aston Martin Vanquish sports car – one for himself, and six for his petrolhead friends.
The Fascenario .3 itself is a fresh introduction to the Storck range, and a bike that boasts plenty of interesting design features. With a claimed weight of 840g, the Fascenario .3 frame is heavily sculpted to cheat the wind, and uses aero-optimised profiles at its head tube and down tube along with a distinctive, dedicated fork that’s shaped to minimise turbulence and therefore drag.

Even in its regular form, the Storck Fascenario .3 is not a cheap bike. Storck is looking for £5,549 for the frameset alone – but that’s almost a bargain when you’re confronted with the price of the Aston Martin edition model which stands at a staggering £15,777 / €17777 / $17007.
It’s not the first time Aston Martin has collaborated with a bike manufacturer either; anyone remember the Factor Aston Martin bike?
