What car lacks a windshield and a roof, is not street-legal in North America, but has a starting price of nearly $1 million USD? The Aston Martin V12 Speedster, that's what. Tracing its lineage from the 1959 LeMans winner DBR1, this limited production roadster is taking flight with key technical elements from the current flagship DBS Superleggera. And is it ever a marvelous sight to see.
Serious Aston Martin enthusiasts will rejoice at this highly exclusive supercar release. Clearly made for driving purists, the V12 Speedster is a force to be reckoned with on the tracks and in owners’ garages. As there is no roof and no windshield, wearing a full-face helmet is expected to lap around the ring at full speed.
Born from an intriguing collaboration between Boeing and ‘Q by Aston Martin’, the in-house bespoke division of the brand presents a V12 Speedster concept model reminiscent of the F/A-18 Hornet. Finished in Skyfall Silver, it features a dark interior scheme with sculpted structural satin carbon fiber, and adorned with red ribbon accents reminiscent of ubiquitous “Remove Before Flight” tags. Aggressive, dominating, and robust, it seeks to reach the same legendary status as the American fighter jet.
A center cockpit divider isolates the driver from the passenger, further enhancing the enthralling sensations of speed for both individual riders. Indeed, the V12 Speedster is equipped with the same 5.2L twin-turbo powerplant as the Superleggera, delivering an astonishing 700 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque. That is enough to blast it from 0 to 100 kph in just 3.5 seconds.
Aston Martin has long been associated with automotive engineering excellence and unrestrained opulence with a shamelessly British appeal. As only 88 hand-crafted units will be produced worldwide, the V12 Speedster might emerge as one of the most sought after collector’s cars this decade.
