In the book: the Nimbus 2000 was produced by the Nimbus Racing Broom Company as part of their successful line of racing brooms. Released in 1991, it was, at the time, the fastest broomstick in production. The Nimbus 2000 easily outperformed its competitors on the Quidditch pitch until it was replaced as the top broomstick by the Nimbus 2001.
The handle of the broom is made of mahogany.
Harry Potter received one from Minerva McGonagall when he joined the Gryffindor Quidditch team as a Seeker. This broomstick had been well owned in two years until his third year of Quidditch, during a match against Hufflepuff played during a severe thunderstorm, during which it was destroyed when it struck the Whomping Willow when Harry fell off after losing consciousness due to the appearance of a large number of Dementors.
Later, when Harry asked about his broomstick, Ron uncovers the damaged remains in the Hospital Wing, the broom having been reduced to splinters.
