LinkedIn +

Aston Martin has confirmed limited production of a new V12 Speedster. Created by in-house bespoke service Q by Aston Martin, the new car’s design will nod to the brand’s 1959 DBR1 and the Centenary CC100 Speedster Concept shown in 2013.

At the heart of the 88 cars will sit a high-performance variant of Aston Martin’s 5.2-liter V12 twin-turbo engine, capable of generating an output of around 700ps and 700Nm of torque. The twelve-cylinder unit will be mated to a rear mounted ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

Aston Martin Lagonda president Dr Andy Palmer said, “The V12 Speedster we’re proud to confirm today once again showcases not only this great British brand’s ambition and ingenuity, but also celebrates our rich and unrivalled heritage.”

The Speedster will make its global debut later this year, with orders now being taken for the hand-built car. Deliveries are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021.
