Aston Martin Speedster V12

Updated: Apr 5, 2020

Welcome to the world, Aston Martin's most recent roofless variant, the V12 Speedster.



It appears as though today's manufacturers are bringing back the speedster look from the late racing icons in today's design language. The world has had a taste of this style when Lamborghini released the exclusive 2006 Gallardo Concept S. Though, it did not seem to keep a trend. Fortunately, the trend has caught on, and we are more than happy about it.


Aston Martin has determined it will only produce 88 examples of the Speedster, with each going for around $950,000. Each unit will be given to Aston's Q division which takes care of all bespoke commissions. It should attract the attention of genuine car enthusiasts and most definitely collectors. Perhaps the right car to place alongside the Ferrari SP2 Monza, or the Mclaren Elva? We are certain.




The example shown in the picture above is an optional specification that includes many different F/A-18 Fighter jet imageries, which in our opinion, completes the language of the car even more. Not to mention what powers it - a V12 sourced from the DB11 and DBS Superleggera, producing close to 700bhp and 555lb-ft with a top speed limited to 186mph, which should give the driver and passenger plenty of space to taste whatever flying insect stands its way.


Now, let's talk about practicality, which, well, should be fairly outspoken. Aston has chosen to add a removable carry-on bag alternatively to the usual glove box, and what's more interesting is the extra space Aston Martin has placed on the humps located behind the driver and passenger side. Perhaps, the perfect place to store your custom Aston Martin Carbon Fibre racing helmets? As they have just intended to do.



Now, with all of that being said. Would you decide to go home with the newly born Aston Martin V12 Speedster, the Mclaren Elva, or perhaps, the Ferrai SP2 Monza?


Let us know.
