It seems that the Speedsters, vehicles without roof and windshield, are currently enjoying a certain popularity with prestigious manufacturers, and especially their customers. After Ferrari,
McLaren and before
Lamborghini, it's the turn of
Aston Martin to market its own. Called the V12 Speedster, it’s not really new as it was introduced earlier this year. However, this is the first time that photos of the prototype in action on the road can be seen.
Taking elements from other models of the brand such as the DBS or the Superleggera, it has, as its name suggests, a 5.2-liter V12 developing 700 hp and 753 Nm. All this is sent to the rear wheels via a 8-speed automatic transmission.
Limited to 88 copies, the V12 Speedster is expensive for its uniqueness: around 1 million euros! The first deliveries will take place in 2021.
