The Nimbus 2000 was produced by the Nimbus Racing Broom Company as part of their successful line of racing brooms. At the time of it's release in 1991, it was 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 broom was released in or before August 1991 and became the best broom on offer at the time. It was very popular but expensive to purchase. The broom handle was made of mahogany, and appeared sleek and shiny. It had a long tail of neat twigs with the words "Nimbus Two Thousand" written in gold near the top of the handle. It was also light and speedy.
Harry Potter received one from Minerva McGonagall, when he joined the Gryffindor Quidditch team as the new Seeker. He owned it for two years until the Gryffindor and Hufflepuff Quidditch match in November 1993. Harry fell off the broom when dementors appeared on the pitch, and it struck the Whomping Willow. Later, when Harry asked about his broomstick, Ron uncovered the damaged remains in the Hospital Wing, the broom having been reduced to splinters.
