Video: FIRST LOOK: The 2021 1/88 Aston Martin V12 Speedster [4K]
This is the new Aston Martin V12 Speedster, a stunning open 2-seat hypercar limited to just 88 units at a cost of £765,000 each from the team at Aston Martin Q. Powered by a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 from the Aston Martin DBS engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 700 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque! The Speedster's body is made from carbon fiber, taking inspiration from past Astons like the DBS 59 and the CC100 concept as well as fighter jets like the F/A-18 Hornet. Visually it's striking, with additional openings for cooling at the front of an elongated bonnet and lack of windscreen. The seats are cocooned inside the cabin which itself is loaded with fighter jet inspirations. Behind the cabin sits the rear buttresses that house the carbon fibre helmets above a carbon fibre lined storage area.
