Aston Martin V12 Speedster 2021
The Aston Martin V12 Speedster has made its global debut in May 2020, with just 88 examples of this puristic limited-edition model set to hit the road.
Created by luxury British marque's bespoke customisation service 'Q by Aston Martin', the Aston Martin V12 Speedster is a truly visceral driver's car that draws inspiration from both the brand's rich racing history and aeronautical design. The example vehicle was showcased in a conceptual F/A-18 livery, also curated by the same artisans.
Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: "It makes me enormously proud to reveal Aston Martin's latest, most exciting special model today. The V12 Speedster is an incredible demonstration of the breadth of capability and determination from the 'Q by Aston Martin' team, who have worked tirelessly to create this stunning, two-seat sports car aimed at our most demanding and enthusiastic customers."
Conceived in early 2019, the V12 Speedster has undergone an intensive development programme, going from drawing board to production reality within that short period. Demonstrating the skills and meticulous planning of 'Q by Aston Martin' and Aston Martin Design, the V12 Speedster is a living show car, underlining the company's commitment to deliver customers a stunning driver's car, using the engineering ingenuity and advanced materials evident throughout the entire Aston Martin range.
Utilising Aston Martin's latest bonded aluminium architecture, the V12 Speedster utilises elements from both the DBS Superleggera and Vantage model lines to create its own unique platform. With independent double wishbone front, and multi-link rear suspension with coil springs and adaptive damping offering Sport, Sport+ and Track modes, the V12 Speedster also benefits from standard 21-inch forged centre lock alloy wheels. Carbon Ceramic Brakes of 410mm on the front axle and 360mm at the rear are also standard equipment.
Over the Aston Martin V12 Speedster's unique chassis is a bespoke body constructed almost entirely from carbon fibre.
Powering the Aston Martin V12 Speedster is Aston Martin's 5.2-litre, Twin-Turbo V12 engine, with a peak output of 700hp and 753Nm of torque. Front mid-mounted, the all alloy, quad cam 48-valve engine is mated to a ZF 8-Speed automatic transmission with a limited-slip differential driving the rear wheels. The V12 Speedster is able to accelerate to 62mph (100km/h) in 3.5 seconds on the way to a limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h).
Orders are now being taken for the Aston Martin V12 Speedster, with pricing starting at £765,000 including VAT and deliveries expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
