Luxury Motorcycles: As part of its Brutale On Tour event showcasing latest models, luxe Italian motorcycle brand MV Augusta will display the limited edition $120,000 F4CC superbike in London this weekend. The ultra-luxurious motorcycle, the worlds most expensive and exclusive production sport bike, was sculpted by Massimo Tamburini in titanium and carbon fiber. Only 100 of the hand-built bikes are being produced, and each one comes with a Girard-Perregaux Swiss watch and a limited edition leather jacket by Italian fashion house Trussardi.

The F4CC was conceived by MV Augusta director Claudio Castiglioni himself and bears his initials. "I decided to put my name to this bike as I originally dreamed of it for myself," he says. Castiglioni spared no expense in creating the motorcycle, employing exclusive materials and the latest technology to attain the utmost in performance. 90% of the F4CCs parts are tailor-made by hand. Its 1078 cc engine produces 200 hp and a top speed of 195 mph. And with a kerb weight of 412 lbs., it costs twice as much per pound as a Ferrari.
