We about choked up all those drinks we worked through from Ray's showing on CNBC when we heard the $110,000 price tag on this all-titanium Confederate Fighter. Available exclusively through this year's Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, the Fighter borrows its front suspension from the Confederate Wraith and modifies pretty much everything else. The company claims that the Fighter will hit 190mph, which seems extremely ambitious given the more performance-oriented Wraith only managed 166mph at Bonneville last month. We're hoping the claimed 45 unit production run isn't just another impractical chopper instead of the category-defying masterpieces we know its capable of building. Complete and obnoxiously over-the-top details below along with a gallery.
Limited-Edition Fighter Motorcycle There's the startling, dare we say sexy, design that fuses raw power with crisp simplicity. It's an evolution of the machine, at once taken back down to its core elements while being reinvented and re-engineered for optimal performance. It's our street-legal sci-fi dream come to life, in the form of the limited-edition Fighter Motorcycle. Ours exclusively courtesy of Confederate Motor Company®, the first ever Fighter packs 190 mph of performance into its cutting edge carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum chassis. There's the 64" wheelbase, 27"H seat, integrated braking system, lots of high-tech bells and whistles, and custom NM edition features. But, honestly, ride it once and you'll be too jacked up on adrenaline to remember all the details.
The Fighter clarifies opaqueness and nullifies hype with straight-forward true to concept certitude. At the source is a classic right triangle. Proportion is classically derived. Scale is middle way. Bearing exudes structural permanence. Human integration deploys yang energy, vitality, and power in the most simple, pure and direct form. Geometry is optimized for the medium and/or long disciplined journey of sensory heightened motion. Torque to weight is maximized. Engine, suspension and ergonomic luxury and ease of use is optimized. Materials utilization is the finest. Individual piece and component specification is highest and best. Craft preparation and specification is uncompromised. The aesthetic is fresh, industrial, sculptural, holistic and honest. The saddle of the Fighter is your place for those outings which require extended time, geography, meditation and distance. Personal liberation will result![Neiman Marcus, Confederate Motors]
