The British brand confirmed last year’s rumors about working on speedster and revealed some details. The novelty was developed by two branches: Q by Aston Martin studio and Aston Martin Design design center. Designing a supercar and preparing for launch in small-scale production took more than a year. The two-door is addressed to “driving enthusiasts” and collectors, and two Aston models became the inspiration for it at once.
The design of the V12 Speedster draws on the features of the historic DBR1 racing model, the winner of the 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours and the 1000 kilometers of the Nurburgring marathon, as well as the 2013 CC100 anniversary speedster. The latter was released in honor of the 100th anniversary of the brand in the amount of two pieces and both cars are now in a private collection.
The direct competitors of the V12 Speedster will be Ferrari Monza and McLaren Elva.
