An Aston like no Other
Orders are now being taken for Aston Martin’s custom V12 Speedster
Just 88 examples of the new Aston Martin V12 Speedster will be available to buyers worldwide – and a DBR1 custom specification will be offered for this iconic open cockpit sports car.
This limited edition model not only embraces the elegant design of Aston’s most successful racing machine but also the CC100, which debuted in 2013 to mark the brand’s centenary year.
Featuring integrated custom elements reminiscent of the Le Mans winning race car, the Aston Martin V12 Speedster DBR1 specification offers highlights such as the Aston Martin racing green paint finish, clubsport white pinstripe and roundels, a satin silver anodised grille with clubsport lipstick graphic, conker saddle leather and viridian green technical textile/caithness leather.
Aston Martin racing green driver and passenger helmets sit under transparent ‘windows’, while solid silver ‘wing’ badges glint beneath transparent enamel. Gloss carbon fibre, Caithness green leather and satin silver brushed aluminium switchgear in the V12 Speedster’s open cabin underline the homage to a motoring great.
At the car’s heart lies a high-performance variant of Aston Martin’s now iconic, 5.2-litre V12 Twin-Turbo engine, capable of generating an output of around 700 PS and 753 Nm. Offering an impressive breadth of performance, response and exhilarating V12 soundtrack, the engine is mated to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission mounted towards the rear of the car. This translates into a 0-62 mph time in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph – not bad for a car without a roof or windscreen. astonmartin.com
