Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton has signed a new contract with MV Agusta which means a new project from this collaboration is imminent.
Following the success of the Dragster RR LH, which Hamilton helped design, the three-time world champion is thrilled to continue this partnership and to create a brand new model with the Italian firm.
"I love working with Giovanni and the guys at MV Agusta, their passion for engineering and attention to detail produces quite stunning, original looking bikes.
"My projects with MV Agusta are a great way to combine my love of riding bikes with my interest in creative design process so I am very much involved with the CRC (Castiglioni Research Department) design team throughout."
Speaking on his new venture with the Mercedes AMG Petronas driver, Giovanni Castiglioni, MV Agusta Motor President, said, "I met Lewis a few years ago when he called up our Customer Care asking in a very humble way to buy a special bike.
"After having developed some 1/1 bikes for Lewis we turned our common passion into a partnership with the creation of the successful Dragster RR LH produced in 244 units. I’m very excited and proud to continue this cooperation that will see new MV Agustas co-designed with Lewis entering the market in the next month."
The new partnership comes at an interesting time when earlier this year we reported that Mercedes AMG no longer own 25% of MV Agusta S.p.A., with MV Agusta Holding.
We look forward to seeing the new design.
