British car maker Aston Martin has announced a more attractive special version of a twoseat open design called the DBR1 V12 Speedster.
And supercar and supercar manufacturers have apparently realized that the more exclusive and more expensive their cars are, the more customers will be lining up to spend cash on them.
Ferrari has upgraded the Monza SP1 and SP2, McLaren is in the game with Elva, and now, Aston Martin has ramped up to the upcoming V12 Speedster.
But as if the limited edition V12 Speedster with a sevendigit price tag wasn’t expensive or exclusive enough. The British automaker recently announced a special design version called the DBR1 specification.
Production of the V12 Speedster will be limited to just 88 units, inspired by the 1950s DBR1 race car and the CC100 Speedster Concept, which Aston Martin unveiled to celebrate its centenary in 2013.
It is powered by a 5.2liter, twinturbocharged V12 engine that produces 700 hp and 555 lbft of torque.
This setup directs power to the rear wheels, via a ZF eightspeed automatic transmission and a limitedslip differential.
The sleek design of the car, reminiscent of the early days of motorsport, will help it stand out more than just a racing car. By supercar standards, the DBR1 V12 Speedster accelerates from 060 in less than 3.5 seconds.
The customization service for the company Q from Aston Martin takes things a step further for the DBR1 V12 Speedster, which will be finished in Aston Martin Racing Green exterior paint, with glossy white circles on the doors and hood, as well as smoked taillights.
Carbon fiber and the unique Q Forest Green Caithness leather interior with Viridian Green seat accessories will replace the standard black interior of the V12 Speedster.
