Back in November 2010, we told you that AMG and Ducati would be working closely together in future and after 9 months the fruits of their partnership will be made public.  Ducati and Mercedes AMG will be introducing their Special Edition Ducati Diavel AMG at the Frankfurt Motor beginning September 15.  The Diavel comes in matte black and has a number of AMG-inspired touches including carbon fiber grilles, a sport exhaust system, five-spoke wheels as well as an Alcantara seat, aluminum trim and an individually-numbered plaque.

The Ducati Diavel AMG will not be launched until early next year though orders can be made as soon as the motorcycle makes its Frankfurt debut.

Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition Official Release

Ducati and Mercedes AMG have proudly announced that the first public showing of the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition will be at the 64th International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany from 15-25 September. The 2012 flagship model of the Diavel family is a tribute to the AMG luxury-sport brand and is intended for passionate connoisseurs of technology, engineering detail and exclusive style.

Based upon the Diavel Carbon, the Diavel AMG Special Edition features AMG’s signature 5-spoke wheel styling, carbon fiber lateral radiator grilles with aluminium trim, AMG-style sport exhaust system with engraved end-caps and AMG-style horizontally ribbed seat upholstery. The model’s incredible attention to performance detail also ensures that every engine has its Desmodromic cam-timing set by hand and authenticated with the name of the engine technician engraved on the left-side engine casing. Further underlining the model’s exclusivity, each motorcycle will have a numbered plaque on the fuel tank.

The award-winning Ducati Diavel has had massive first-year success for the Italian motorcycle manufacturer, its bold design merging the worlds of power and style with absolute precision to set a new industry standard for the segment.

Hand-built – as with all Ducati motorcycles – the exclusive new Diavel AMG Special Edition is dressed in matte black carbon fibre bodywork with AMG’s very own “Diamond White Bright” stripe and frame colour contrasted with black wheels. The special edition wheels, seat and exhaust end-caps are all AMG branded while “AMG” is also laser-engraved into the air-duct panels either side of the fuel tank. The Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition and dedicated leather jacket and helmet apparel will be available in early 2012 with orders opening to coincide with the first public showing at the Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany.
